Integration Bee Champions
Our annual integration bee attracts the brightest, fastest, and most cunning integrators every year.
Coming first is no easy task.
Congratulations to all winners on this amazing accomplishment.
2021 Integration Bee
Thank you to all who took the time to compete, spectate and show support at MathSoc’s annual Integration Bee! Our team thinks it was a great success and we hope you all had as much fun as we did.
Congratulations to the winner Jake Edwards and the runner up Jason Lin. We would like to especially mention that Jake has now managed to win this competition a whopping three times. Jake’s skills were well and truly a cut above the rest, managing to dominate the competition from start to finish.
We can’t also go out without mentioning that the finale was a gripping and spectacular roller coaster of emotions. From amazement, to confusion, to anticipation; our 2021 Integration Bee finale had it all. See if you can spot which one of our questions caused the contestants to grind to a halt, as we are releasing both the questions and solutions below.
Finally, we would also like to congratulate Kabir Agrawal for coming in third place. The third place round was not short on entertainment either. It was a wholesome affair as both contestants after some frustration, ending up helping each other out to solve the integral.

2017 Integration Bee
2016 Integration Bee
Early in the year during O-Week, we were all still in holiday mood, with the smell of the sea on our backs after a long day at the beach. Yet a room full of vibrant maths enthusiasts came down to the Macauley Theatre ready to tackle the toughest integrals the world has ever faced!
A room packed with keen competitors battled it out, scribbling out integrals here and there on scrap paper, to land a spot in the group stages. It was close. It was intense. It was bloodthirsty. But alas, 16 of the sharpest minds proved that they were sharper than the rest.
The battlefield was fierce. 16 turned to 8. And 8 turned to 4. And here we reached the GRAND FINALS!
It was the legend of Gary Liang vs the defending champion Changyu Wayne Xiu vs the proud Allan Loi from Actuarial vs Aydin Abdioglu unfazed by his higher year competitors. Neck on neck. Breaths were held. Heartbeats were skipped. Sweat bubbles were formed.
This was edge of the seat action. One could swear the clocks stopped moving.
But in the end, the man, the myth, the LEGEND… GARY LIANG rises up on top with his slick moves on the whiteboard.
2015 Integration Bee
Congratulations to the champion, Changyu Wayne Xiu!
It was a close but intense battle in the finals, but with Wayne’s magic mathematical insight, was able to answer the final integral with little to no working out. Joshua Xu showed great determination and perseverance and came a close second.
2014 Integration Bee
Congratulations to the champion, Eric Xu!
