Dear Student from Singapore,
It is a great pleasure to invite you to join the Singa (Singapore Math Global Team Challenge) 2018 to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from November 16 to 20, 2018.
Singa is Singapore math global team competition with 3 members in each team. It is a unique new math competition with ambitious and important goals. The focus in Singa is very strongly on teamwork, and the Gold-winning groups will have to show high levels of collaboration, stamina and mutual support – as well as superlative math skills.
