Try Out To Enter A Prestigious World Math Competition in Taiwan and 12-Week Training:

If your child enjoys solving math problems, he/she is invited to try out for the USA-Silicon Valley teams that will compete in an International Math Contest in Taiwan in July 25-30, 2012. It is a unique opportunity for

Grades 3-9 students to have an academic and a cultural experience with children from around the world.

Having participated in International Math Competitions for the past 7 years, the USA-Silicon Valley teams have won dozens of honorable awards and received a lot of press coverage. At last year’s IMC 2011 held in Indonesia, the teams won Champion and 2nd runner-up in team awards and all 8 individual awards.



The competition is composed of two divisions:

1) Lower Division (born after 7/20/98 and grade 6 or lower)         Round1 samples               Round2  samples

2) Upper Division (born after 7/20/95 and grade 9 or lower)         Round1 samples               Round2  samples



Student who scores in the top 10% in the 2) IMC tryout will be invited to go through a 12-week intensive training. Another test will be administered to determine the final students representing the USA teams to compete in Taiwan. For these students, all expenses (except airfare) for room & board, and local tours in Taiwan during the six days will be covered.


Qualify for Free Summer Camp Training in Hong Kong Conducted by IMAS
