Why SIMOC?

Singapore International Math Olympiad Challenge (SIMOC) is a unique concept of mathematics competition which not only tests your ability to solve mathematical problems on pen and paper but also tests your ability to work as a team to play interactive mathematical games and solve puzzles. SIMOC gives you an opportunity to compete with top mathematical talents from around the world and learn from each other as a team. Individual and team recognition awards are up for grabs.

SIMOC consists of three categories: 1 individual written Math Olympiad Contest for grades 2 to 10 (Primary 2 to Secondary 4) and two team based challenges – Maths Warriors Competition and Mind Sports Challenge.

History

Singapore International Math Olympiad Challenge (SIMOC) is the brainchild of Singapore International Maths Contests Centre.  After organizing Singapore and Asian Schools Math Olympiad (SASMO) for a decade and attending various international math contests, along with the experience of running Maths Warriors and Mind Sports contests in Singapore for more than 16 years, SIMCC decided to incorporate these into a new international contest that would let students experience the thrill of math games along with the challenge of solving puzzles.

The first SIMOC was held in Singapore on August 12, 2015.  Thirteen countries attended along with 414 participants and over 350 parents and teachers.

Objectives

  • Encourage creative thinking and build their problem solving skills.
  • Develop their ability to enjoy mathematics and apply them in real life
  • Promote a culture of mutual understanding and learning from each other
  • Boost their confidence in comprehending and solving complex problems.

    What is Maths Warriors?

    Math Warriors is a game that tests student’s ability to do mental sums as well as strategic thinking. There is also an element of luck involved which makes the game even more exciting.

    History

    It was designed in 2002 by Henry Ong, the Founder of SASMO to help students weak in math to develop faster mental sums skills and master the Times Table.  It is used by many Singapore Primary schools to improve mental math processing, strategy and thinking skills. The first National Primary Schools Maths Warriors’ Challenge started in 2004 and was hosted by Nan Hua Secondary School. It was introduced as an event in the inaugural Singapore International Math Olympiad Challenge last year and was very received.

    Each team will be comprised of a member from a different country and as much as possible a different grade within the same division.
    Each student will join 2 partners from different grades and countries to compete in one of 3 divisions:

    • Lower Division(Grade 2 to 4),
    • Middle Division (Grade 5 to 7)
    • Upper Division(Grade 8 to 10)
