The International Math Contest is a 30-minute Online Challenge based on leading math curricula from across the world. Participation in the challenge is FREE. You can opt-in to receive a performance report, which provides your child's score, placement, percentile, knowledge strengths, gaps, and illuminates you with as much detail as possible on your child’s grasp of mathematical concepts mastered by their international peers.
If your child has taken the test last year and the year before, the performance report offers a percentile comparison over the years.
Too many parents discover their child’s gaps in mathematics when it’s too late to do something about it. As with anything else, the earlier in a child’s development that you begin to work on something—be it sports, music, or math—the stronger grasp of the subject the child has. In today’s global world, a solid math foundation is important for more than acing standardized tests and getting into top universities; it is also crucial for empowering young minds to think, reason, and later compete for a variety of sought-after careers with their international peers. The International Math Contest is a 30-minute Online Challenge based on leading math curricula from across the world. Developed by math professionals with decades of experience at the Russian School of Mathematics, the contest is specifically designed to give parents insight into how their child’s math knowledge ranks globally.
The Online Challenge also serves as a qualifier for the Second Round: a challenging Olympiad in the tradition of European Mathematical Olympiads with complex problems that promote a deeper level of thinking for even the most advanced students.
What is the greatest possible 3-digit number, whose sum of digits is equal to 13?
Five years ago, David was three times as old as Julia was. In 2 years, David will be twice as old as Julia will be. How old is David now?
The two top NBA players played a basketball game against the RSM team. Together the NBA players made 85 baskets, scoring one point for free throws and two or three points for field goals. They scored a total of 184 points during the game. If they made 22 free throws, how many three-point field goals did they make?
How many different ways are there to place four different digits from 1 to 4 inside of the four square cells of a 2-by-2 grid (one digit per cell) such that for every pair of digits that are 1 apart (such as 2 and 3), their square cells share a side?
There are eight different cards (four red and four blue) with the digits 2, 0, 1, 7 on them. Each card has exactly one digit, and each of these digits is on exactly two cards (one red and one blue). How many different ways are there to put all eight cards in a row with digits face up and right-side up such that every card appears right next to another card with the same digit?
Let Dº be the total degree measure of the seven internal angles of an irregular heptagonal star whose vertices are O, L, Y, M, P, I, and A (see diagram). Compute the value of D.
