Australian Intermediate Mathematics Olympiad | Australian Maths Trust


Giving talented students opportunity to be recognised and enhance their enjoyment and knowledge of maths.

AIMO will be held on Thursday 10 September 2020

Entries close: Tuesday 8 September
Cost: A$19.00

This four-hour contest is designed to stretch talented students. It is suited to years 7 to 10 level and particularly for those who:

  • have completed Maths Enrichment (Gauss or Noether level)
  • are high achievers in the Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC)
  • students who have acquired knowledge in Olympiad problem solving.

We also use the Australian Intermediate Mathematics Olympiad (AIMO) as one of the competitions to determine which students are selected to a number of invitation only events, including other mathematics competitions, enrichment classes and training schools.

It gives talented students an opportunity to be recognised and to participate in activities which will enhance their enjoyment and knowledge of mathematics.

Running the AIMO

For schools under stay at home restrictions, we will allow home supervision in 2020. Students’ responses will be scanned and emailed in for marking. Competition instructions and the paper will be emailed to school coordinators the week before the AIMO.

For all other schools, AIMO will be conducted in schools under exam conditions for four hours. Students work on their own and may not use calculators, electronic devices or other aids.

The registration system is for teachers only. If you are not a teacher, please contact your teacher and direct them here.

The Olympiad programs are funded through the Australian Government’s National Innovation and Science Agenda. The Olympiad programs are also supported by the Trust’s National Sponsor of the Australian Informatics and Mathematical Olympiads, Optiver.
