Zschopau student Melia Haase is 17 years old and passionate about mathematics. As an early student at Chemnitz University of Technology, she has already achieved impressive academic success. This semester she is also visiting: B. the lecture “Linear Algebra II” at Chemnitz University of Technology. “Melia Haase is an impressive student and “Student who manages to show excellent performance in mathematics olympiads and also participate actively and enrichingly in the lectures,” reports Prof. Dr. Martin Stoll, who gives the lecture.

Now she has proven herself at the European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad (EGMO) in Tskaltubo (Georgia) and was able to take home a silver medal. Like last year, Melia Haase and the German team achieved an excellent seventh place out of 55 participating countries and fourth place across Europe. Prof. Dr. Daniel Potts, Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics, says: “We are proud to be able to support Ms. Haase, one of the best young mathematicians in Europe, as an early student with us and warmly congratulate her on her success in Georgia.”

The EGMO is the most important European mathematics competition for mathematically gifted students from all over the world and has taken place annually since 2012. On two days of the competition, the students have to solve a total of six complex mathematical problems in two four-and-a-half-hour exams. Around half of the students receive a medal, and outstanding problem-solving skills are also recognized. Participation in the EGMO is by invitation only, with each country nominating up to four students. The nominations are based on outstanding results in the pre-selection for the International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO).
