The Math Olympiad Program (MOP) is an advanced problem solving competition designed to prepare talented high school mathematicians for the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO).
The competition consists of two selection rounds and a final round.
- In the first round, participants tackle 12 problems, each requiring only the final answer to be solved in 120 minutes. One point is awarded for every correct answer and no points for wrong answers. The maximum score is 12.
- Top scorers are granted entry to the second round. Here students attend a 10-day bootcamp with International Mathematicians. The results from the bootcamp are summed, and the top students are invited to the final round.
- In the final round, students have four hours to solve four problems. These problems do not only require correct answers, but proper argumentation and proof.
To be eligible to apply for MOP2020, students must meet all the following criteria:
- Be in 8th, 9th, or 10th Grade.
- Be born in the year 2003, 2004, 2005 or 2006. Older students should apply for the RESEARCH PROGRAM
