On 12 August 2015, the NTU School of Physical and Mathematical Science represented by Dr. Fedor DUZHIN, gave away Certificates of Merit and Certificates of Participation to six selected teams in recognition of their good quality submissions for a Problem-Based Learning (PBL) assignment. The students had submitted the PBL assignment as part of their Advanced Mathematics Module 3. It was designed by Dr. Fedor DUZHIN based on a talk entitled “Geometric Problems Involving Minima and Maxima” that he had given to the Advanced Mathematics students on 13 May 2015.
The top three teams consisting of students from DES, DCHE, and DEEE respectively, received Certificates of Merit and Prize Vouchers of $150 (1st), $100 (2nd) & $50 (3rd) from NTU while the other three teams received Certificates of Participation. The award ceremony was attended by Dr. Fedor DUZHIN, MS lecturers, and staff from SEEE and SMAE. The ceremony ended with a candid sharing by the recipients on their learning journey in solving the challenging PBL assignment. This was followed by a tea reception.
