Our Flagship Event

A Mathematical Adventure Unlike Any Other

SIGMA is the flagship event of LUMS Students Mathematics Society, organized in collaboration with the Mathematics Department at Lahore University of Management Sciences.

SIGMA 5 will be held in LUMS over two days, 11th and 12th of January 2021. It will comprise of various competitions ranging from basic arithmetic to puzzles that require far-fetched logical and mathematical reasoning.

Sigma is an amazing opportunity for you to interact and compete with a diverse body of intellectually curious students that you will not get in any other math competition in Pakistan. It is a chance for you to hone and showcase your mathematical prowess on a global stage while enjoying the engaging activities we have planned out for you.

Events

Exciting and Fun events that you will wanna never stop playing

Kahoot

All the members will log onto Kahoot! app using their computers/mobile phones with one member from each team required to login and then work as a team. All teams will be allotted certain time for each question where they will solve it in a race against time with bonus and streaks awaiting those solving it correctly (and early!).

Crack the Image

Crack the image is a logical game in which you have to look each part of the image very carefully. It can have numbers, logical expressions, symbols etc. You have to look two or more terms and understand how they are build up and how they are related. From this, you can go over the entire image and seek after the answers. Keep in mind that you will have very limited time, so once you enter an answer for a blank, it will not change then.

Raise a Hand

Do you have UNAGI (the state of total awareness)? If yes, “Raise a hand” awaits for the presence of all mathematical brainiacs in town this year! It’s the ultimate battle against your nerves, time, and the brightest minds. Keep calm and raise your hand while having UNAGI! You never know what might befall you.

Apollos's Forbidden Door

To move to the next phase of the event, you need to cross a door. The door is made by Apollo, the Greek God of Logic & Reasoning. The door forbids you to pass and has some writings engraved on it and a keypad.

Olympiad

If you love to prove stuff and hate approximations (sorry physicists and engineers), this is the event for you. Teams will be given 5 problems based on the four standard categories (Algebra, Combinatorics, Geometry, Number Theory) used in mathematical olympiads around the world. After 3 hours, they will have to submit their solutions. Partial credit will be given.

Geometry

This event will test the participant’s ability to reverse a process. All the participants of a team will be given shapes of varying difficulties and asked to derive parametric equations which describe the graph. A certain amount of time will be given to come up with solutions. Points will be given on how closely the equations match the shape and not on the time taken to form the equations. Always think before moving to the next equation!
