Asian Pacific Mathematics Olympiad

Disclaimer: Ads shown below do not indicate CMS endorsement.

Canada is a participating country in the Asian Pacific Mathematics Olympiad (APMO). Each year the CMS invites 20-30 students to write the APMO based on their results in other national and international competitions.

The current APMO host site can be found here.

The 2015 APMO will take place on Monday, March 9. Thirty-three students from across Canada will write the exam. Contest papers, solutions and results will be posted after the competition. Official results are expected to be made available in early-May.

Contest Information

Since its inception in 1989, the APMO aims to encourage and challenge mathematically gifted children in all Pacific-Rim countries, foster friendly international relations and cooperation between students and teachers and encourage and support mathematical involvement with Olympiad type activities.

The APMO is held in the afternoon of the second Monday of March for participating countries in the North and South Americas, and in the morning of the second Tuesday of March for participating countries on the Western Pacific and in Asia. The contest questions are to be collected from the contestants at the end of the APMO and are to be kept confidential until the Senior Coordinating Country posts them on the official APMO website.

The APMO contest consists of one four-hour paper consisting of five questions of varying difficulty and each having a maximum score of 7 points.
