This yearly math challenge provides students with a venue to hone their mathematical skills in an atmosphere of friendly competition and to contribute in improving the quality of mathematics education in the Philippines.
Specifically, it aims to: awaken greater interest in Mathematics among elementary and high school students in both private and public schools all over the country; encourage students to strive for excellence in Mathematics; encourage mastery of basic mathematical skills and to discover mathematical talents among elementary and high school students.
Through the years, TCS strives to develop students to be mathematically adept. To focus on this program, the school has been the center of the Mathematics Trainers Guild (MTG), a program which search for, encourage and challenge mathematically gifted pupils and students to reach their fullest potential.
Furthermore the program strives to develop, initiate, direct and supervise an intensive and comprehensive training program to supplement and enrich the existing mathematics curriculum and programs and to provide opportunities for mathematically gifted pupils/students to interact with foreign teachers and students.
