Justin Park '23 - Founder
I care about innovation which will make the world a better place. This is exactly what I want to do with UWCMT.
Mathematics is something that I have been interested in for a long time and I have taken part in math competitions since 3rd grade. There have been some math competitions in my journey which are innovative and differ from the rest, but most of them have similar format. Additionally, as a mathlete, I find some questions in math competitions to be beautiful and interesting, but many other students would just find them daunting. UWCSEA Dover has attempted to make mathematics fun for everyone such as a mathematics house event for all middle school students and the Math Ambassadors grade 9 math competition which are both unique and suitable for most students. However, I want to create a tournament for students around the world and continue to innovate even more.
Yanjia (Frank) Zhang '24 - Director of Problem Writing
A mathlete for almost 5 years, I have participated in mathematics challenges of all forms, traditional and innovative. Not only have I practised my problem-solving skills, but I'm also starting to realise the beauty of math - something that lies behind the calculations, within the graphs and between the equations; something that resides in the physical world, everywhere around us. I would like to share this fascinating discovery with everyone through interesting mathematics problems.
He put a lot of effort into making sure that the questions were written and helped out with the formatting of the paper. He wrote several interesting questions himself and helped converted some questions into LaTeX form. He has also helped out in some non problem writing aspects of the tournament such as printing the question papers.
Soomin You '24 - Director of Communications

Aadi Shah '23 - Director of Communications
Was in charge of the communication aspects of the tournament. He contacted some schools on taking part in this tournament. Though due to Covid and the fact that it was the first time this tournament took place, no other schools took part, however he is looking forward to get other schools to participate for the 2022 tournament. He is also interested in many other aspects of this tournament such as the website.
Xiaowen Huang '22 - Director of Marketing
Was in charge of the marketing aspects of the tournament. She lead the marketing team in creating an advertisement video for taking part in the tournament. She made a strong plan early on to make sure that everything was finished on time.
