Hua Xia Cup



The “Hua Xia Cup,” also known a the “China Cup” established a national organizing committee in 2008. In the past 12 years, it has been held in 20 provinces across the country, including Shanghai, Shenzhen, Sichuan, Guangxi, Anhui, Hunan, Hebei, Shandong, Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Regions, as well as Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia. The city established a divisional competition organizing committee. As the “Hua Xia Cup” becomes more and more influential, the “Hua Xia Cup” is now being conducted across South East Asia and some other parts of the world. It is the mission of AIMO Union to provide teenagers with an international platform for the purposes of learning Mathematics, cultural exchange, intriguing their mathematical insights, improving their qualities of scientific thinking minds and hence enhancing the friendship and cooperation of teenagers from different countries/regions.

The “Hua xia Cup” is jointly proposed by mathematics experts, university professors and front-line mathematics teachers. It focuses on students’ mastery and understanding of knowledge points and has very high requirements on students’ innovation ability and mathematical application ability. Awards include standing top prizes, special prizes and first, second and third prizes. Winning the Huaxia Cup has high value and enhances the core competitiveness of winning students for further studies.

The “Hua Xia Cup” activities are mainly for the first grade of primary school to the third grade of secondary school, ie. Grade 9. The schedule includes a local regional/country-level Trial round and finals. Hundreds of thousands of people participate every year. Taking the Hong Kong competition area as an example, about 30,000 students participate every year. , has become one of the most influential local primary and secondary school mathematics competitions.

HXC Union

Hua Xia Cup is a collaborative international organisation among Asian mathematical research organisations and individuals.

As an educational institution, the Hong Kong Mathematical Olympiad (HKMO) has been committed to improving the mathematics level of Hong Kong students for many years since its establishment in 2004, promoting Mathematical Olympiad training and exchanges among students from mainland China, Hong Kong and Macao. It organizes and co-organizes a number of large-scale competitions every year, including the famous ” China Cup”, “Hong Kong and Macau Cup”, etc., has created many firsts, such as coordinating the most large-scale Mathematical Olympiad competitions, holding the most age group Mathematical Olympiad competitions, leading the most Hong Kong and Macao students and parents to participate in overseas Mathematical Olympiad competitions, etc., and has won praise and recognition from all walks of life. The Hong Kong Mathematical Olympiad Association joined the Asian International Mathematical Olympiad (AIMO) in 2011 and became one of the member regions, including various provinces in China, Chinese Taipei, Macau, Hong Kong, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia and other places, and held the first session Asian International Mathematical Olympiad Open. The association also established a directly affiliated organization in 2012, the Hong Kong Mathematical Olympiad Association Charity Foundation.
