The Math Olympiad Program (MOP) is an advanced problem solving masterclass designed to prepare talented high school mathematicians for the International Mathematical Olympiad.
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.
To be eligible to apply for MOP 2020, students must meet the following criteria;
- Be in 10th Grade or below as of February 2020
- Participate in the 2020 MISE Problem Solving Tournament – Solve-A-Thon
- Be 16 years old or younger as of 31st December, 2019.
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.
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.
