Department of Applied Mathematics National Sun Yat sen University Department of Applied Mathematics National Hsinchu University ofStudents in these programs usually further participate in science fairs and or mathematical competitions to further pursue their talents inMathematics which we would introduce in the following . 2 Science FairsThere are two major science fairs in Taiwan National Primary and High School Science Fair Taiwan International Science Fair 2 Science Fairs.National Primary and High School Science Fair Founded in 1960 Hosted by the National Taiwan Science Education Center Over 200 000 students and teachers participate the contests annually with over 20 000 projects are presented each year leaving a.widespread and significant impact 2 Science FairsAge SubjectElementary School PhysicsJunior High School Chemistry.Senior High School MathematicsEarth ScienceApplied ScienceHigh School of Commerce MechanismElectronics and Information Science.Chemical and Environmental EngineeringCivil EngineeringAgriculture and Biotechnology 2 Science FairsNational Primary and High School Science Fair. In 1982 the International Science and Engineering Affair ISEF of USAbegin to invite Taiwanese student to the fair At the beginning 2 students are selected from the National Primary andHigh School Science Fair to participate ISEF In 1989 due to the outstanding performance of Taiwanese students .the ISEF raises the number of students to 6 selecting two studentseach from each of the northern central and southern Taiwan 2 Science FairsNational Primary and High School Science Fair From that on more and more international science fairs invite.Taiwanese student to participate with the number of invitationsincreasing rapidly that eventually exceeds the scope of the originalNational Primary and High School Science Fair 2 Science FairsTaiwan International Science Fair. Founded in 1991 and renamed in 2002 Select students to participate international science fairs including Intel International Science and Engineering Fair Intel ISEF Expo Sciences International ESI in Slovakia Canada Wide Science Fair CWSF . Hong Kong Joint School Science Exhibition HKJSSE Singapore Science and Engineering Fair 2 Science FairsTaiwan International Science FairThe Taiwanese contestant performs extremely well in these fairs . Between1982 and 2010 a total of 160 projects of Taiwanese studentshave been selected to compete at ISEF They have won 1 Intel Young Scientists award 9 Best of CategoryAwards 92 Grand Awards and 106 Special Awards The ratio of Taiwanese students to win a Grand Award is about 64 . 102 160 which outperforms the ratio of all participants which isaround 30 2 Science FairsRecently two other science affairs arise that exist simultaneously with theexisting two major affairs . The Macronix Science Award Shing Tung Yau High School Mathematics Award 3 Mathematical CompetitionsNational IMO selection competition Suggested by Prof Shiing Shen Chern in Nov 1990 . In Dec 1990 the authority approved the suggestion assigning Prof Fon Che Liu for IMO and also Prof Jau D Chen for APMO Taiwan begins to participate in APMO since 1991 and in IMO since Prof Chen is in charge of Taiwan IMO program from 1992 to 2002 Prof Cheng Der Fuh is in charge of Taiwan IMO program since 2003 . 3 Mathematical CompetitionsNational IMO selection competition Suggested by Prof Shiing Shen Chern in Nov 1990 In Dec 1990 the authority approved the suggestion assigning Prof Fon Che Liu for IMO and also Prof Jau D Chen for APMO .
