Mathematics Olympiad is a talent search event involving schools from all over India.

The 1st Mathematics Olympiad was held in 1979.

This year the Mathematics Association is organizing the 37th Mathematics Olympiad. This is a platform for students to challenge themselves and test their Mathematical knowledge and skills. The goal of Mathematics Olympiad is to stimulate enthusiasm and love for mathematics, to strengthen mathematical intuition, foster mathematical creativity and provide satisfaction, joy and thrill of meeting challenges.

It is a great opportunity for the participating students to experience the atmosphere of IIT Bombay, which is one of the premium academic institutions of the country. The Olympiad is overseen by some of the most renowned professors of the country, who are faculty at the Mathematics Department of IIT Bombay.

- Original Problems
- Enhancing problem solving skills
- Creating a positive environment

- Exciting gifts and certificates for all

Children are not limited in what they can do when they have mathematical skills

Because to a mathematician, "real life" is a special case

Students from standard 8th, 9th and 10th can appear for the Level 1 examination.

Students from standard 11th and 12th are eligible for the Level 2 examination.

All one needs to crack the Olympiad is common sense and problem solving skills.

Here is a rough list of topics in which one might expect questions.

It is by no means a comprehensive one. It is meant to give the students an idea of what questions might be asked.
