If you opted for a performance report, you will receive it by March 15th via email.

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.

ABOUT

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.
