Our expert tutors prepare students for Maths Olympiad Competitions.
Is Your Child Participating in the APSMO competitions?
The Australasian Problem Solving Mathematical Olympiads (APSMO) offers a range of mathematical competitions for students who are high achievers in mathematics. Students are encouraged to solve mathematical problems in a creative manner.
The main aims of the APSMO competition are to:
- Introduce students to important mathematical concepts
- Teach major strategies and develop flexibility for problem solving
- Foster creativity and ingenuity, and strengthen intuition
- Stimulate enthusiasm and enjoyment of mathematics
- Provide for the satisfaction, joy and thrill of meeting challenges.
Students who participate in our APSMO preparation workshop program will be provided with the opportunity to practice solving questions from past APSMO competitions, in collaboration with others. Students will be encouraged to use more than one method to solve each problem to develop their problem solving strategies and ability to think outside the box.
This workshop program will appeal to students in Years 5, 6, 7, & 8 who love mathematics and attempting to solve challenging mathematical puzzles and problems.
Up to 5 students from similar year levels can participate in each ‘APSMO Preparation’ workshop program, which is live, and facilitated by a qualified and experienced tutor. Optional homework tasks are provided following each workshop, enabling students to revise, practise and consolidate the skills that were focused on.
Our ‘APSMO Preparation’ workshop program consists of 5 X 45 minute lessons that are scheduled over a 5 week period. Programs are scheduled regularly throughout the year.
