Recently, the Award Ceremony of 2019 Higher Education Press Cup Mathematical Contest in Modeling for College Students and Huawei Cup Mathematical Contest in Modeling for Postgraduate Students were held in Beijing University and Fuzhou University respectively. Changzhou University won one first prize, four second prizes and 16 provincial awards in the former contest, sharing 7th place with Nanjing University of Science and Technology and Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in the number of first prize obtained, and achieved one first prize and three second prizes and four third prizes in the latter contest.


This year’s contest for college students attracted 42992 teams of nearly 130 thousands of college students from 1490 universities at home and abroad, while only 0.75% of them obtained the first prize. As for the contest for postgraduate students, 14014 teams from 486 postgraduate training units from China and abroad attended, and the first prize proportion is only 1.34%.


Li Kaiwen, the first prize winner, stated that mathematical modeling contest is highly demanding in breadth and depth of knowledge, which is also a test of physical strength and willpower. In the process of modeling, team members had a clear division of work and gave full play to their specialty. Not only have they gained knowledge and cooperative spirit, but also they strengthened their willpower. Zhu Lei, a postgraduate competitor, noted that he once thought of giving up due to much difficulty during preparation. It was teachers’ guidance and team members’ encouragements that made him keep going to the end. Teamwork is the most valuable part he has gained.
