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 9 September 2021

Entries close: Thursday 2 September 2021
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.

The Olympiad programs are supported by the Australian Government Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources through the Science Competitions: Mathematics and Informatics Olympiads grant opportunity. The Olympiad programs are also supported by the Trust’s National Sponsor of the Australian Informatics and Mathematical Olympiads, Optiver.
