The International Mathematical Tournament of Towns is an bi-annual mathematical competition. The Tournament is organized by local committees in more than 100 cities of more than 25 countries of around theglobe. Students with outstanding results receive an invitation to the annual Summer Conference of the Tournament of Towns.
The Cyberspace Mathematical Competition (CMC) 2020 this year has been concluded. A total of 550 participants from 77 countries took part in the competition. The closing ceremony video can be viewed on YouTube here.
For this contest, 8 candidates represented Malaysia. Malaysia bagged 1 Silver medal, 4 Bronze medals, and 1 Honourable Mention. Congratulations to all the winners!
This year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the International Mathematical Olympiad which was supposed to take place in St. Petersburg, Russia has been moved online. This is the first time that the IMO will be held online outside the host country. This opens up a new vista of mathematical competitions, which are not bound by geographical limitations.
Thus, the American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) and Art of Problem Solving initiated the Cyberspace Mathematical Competition (CMC). This wholly online competition will run on the 13th and the 14th of July. The competition will consist of two 5-hour exams, containing 4 questions each, over the two days.
For the first ever CMC, the Malaysian team, led by M. Suhaimi Ramly, comprised of:
The results for Asian Pacific Mathematical Olympiad (APMO) 2020 this year has been officially announced. This year 9 candidates represented Malaysia at the APMO. Malaysia bagged 2 Silver medals, 3 Bronze medals, and 1 Honourable Mention. Congratulations to all the winners!
