GJMAT & GJMOC

Competitions by Global Olympiads Academy

2022-23

ABOUT GJMAT & GJMOC

Global Olympiads Academy’s purpose is to ignite children’s interest in Maths and love for Problem Solving  by improving their  Higher Order, Logical and Analytical thinking Skills resulting in better academic performance, intellectual and personal development.

“Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of minds to think” – Albert Einstein.

Now, Global Olympiads Academy launches it’s own International Mathematics contests Global Junior Math Aptitude Test (GJMAT)” and “Global Junior Math Online Competition (GJMOC).”

GJMAT is an Online International Mathematical aptitude assessment and competition for talent hunt and GJMOC is a International Global Online Olympiad Competition for elementary and middle school students from Grade 1 to Grade 8.

These competition’s objective is to introduce and give exposure to students on the core purpose of learning mathematics, which is develop logical & critical thinking and problem-solving mindset and attitude.

“Problem solving should be the heart, core and main focus of learning mathematics.”

These contests are of international standards and with our experience of organising so many reputed International contests, we have come up with our own contest to promote the love of Mathematics in foundation years for younger kids.  These contests are available in India and a few countries from Asia and worldwide.  The competitions are inspired and supported by academicians and experts from around the globe.

Why Mathematics at an early age?

“Mathematics is an excellent vehicle, not a destination, to develop and improve the intellectual competencies / capabilities of our children.”

Math is a very sequentially linked subject and therefore foundational years are very critical.  Students must understand that mere rote learning of concepts and mathematical procedures does not develop mathematical and analytical acumen.  To develop mastery and comfort in mathematical problem-solving, one must get early exposure to quality mathematical problems which challenge conceptual understanding, application ability and their higher order thinking skills like logical and critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills.  It’s a gradual learning process where qualities like rigor, perseverance, observation and understanding is developed for a better problem solving mindset and aptitude.

Why GJMAT and GJMOC

  • Exposure to world Class competition on Global standards
  • International Recognition at a Global competition.
  • Post Competition review mechanism will help identify strengths and areas of improvement
  • Gradual learning process due to exposure and learning tools.
  • Improvement in academic performance at school
  • Building Stronger foundation for higher studies
  • Develop top competencies of the future – Higher order thinking skills, creativity and problem-solving skills.
  • Competition includes application and Real world or Real-life use cases of Math.
  • Develops beliefs, values, and personality.

Difference between GJMAT and GJMOC

GJMAT is an open International Assessment and contest to test students’ conceptual clarity, ability to apply them and solve problems.  All students of GJMAT will get different scholarships (discounts) towards the registration fees of GJMOC based on their performance in GJMAT.

GJMOC is a more challenging Open International competition which stretches the student on their critical thinking in problem solving scenarios.  This is not a second round of GJMAT and therefore anyone and everyone can apply but GJMAT winners and participants can get scholarship discounts towards GJMOC registration fees based on their GJMAT performance.  Top 30% students from GJMOC will get medals and certificates.  Next 20% students will get Merit certificates and the remaining 50% will get participation Certificate.  Global Top rank winners and perfect scorers will get special scholarships towards the participation fees of other competitions and/or trophies.

ONLINE TRAINING

Global Olympiads Academy brings a Math Enrichment program for younger kids (grade 1 to grade 8) for International Olympiads (AMC, AIMO, TIMO, WMI, HKIMO, SEAMO,PIMSO,AMC 8, Gauss, etc.)  The program will help the students strengthen their fundamentals, application and problem-solving skills and their overall higher order thinking skills like logical and analytical thinking.  This course with Global standards (inspired by Common Core, Singapore Math and Indian NCERT curriculum) will not help students overcome fear with Math but would inculcate ownership, rigour and perseverance and most importantly liking for the Math. This will help them improve their academic performance in school and definitely in any competitive exam and lay a strong foundation for preparation of entrance exams in future.
