Math Olympiad Program

The Math Olympiad Program (MOP) is an advanced problem solving masterclass designed to prepare talented high school mathematicians for the International Mathematical Olympiad

The Experience:

The Olympiad program provides an unparalleled learning and social environment where talented math students can interact with world-class mathematicians and explore advanced topics in mathematics to a depth never experienced before.

Eligibility:

To be eligible to apply for MOP 2020, students must meet the following criteria;

  1. Be in 10th Grade or below as of February 2020
  2. Participate in the 2020 MISE Problem Solving Tournament – Solve-A-Thon
  3. Be 16 years old or younger as of 31st December, 2019.

Syllabus:

There is no syllabus for the program. The qualifying exam (Solve-A-Thon) requires problem solving at a higher level than in most school math examinations. Candidates are advised to prepare specifically for the Solve-A-Thon using the online problems found here. Students new to competition math may start with the problems  here.

Faculty:

Each year, MISE recruits some of the world’s leading mathematicians and Olympiad winners as faculty and guest speakers. Recent faculty have included: Prof. Mark Saul- Director AMC, Prof. Moon Duchin- Harvard University, Prof. David Savitt- Harvard University, Pius Onah- Cambridge University, Timothy Chu- USAMO Winner/MIT, Sefa Adzo Yakpo- GHAMO Winner/MIT, Brian Basham- MIT/Google and Yao Ohene- Harvard University.
