Giving talented students opportunity to be recognised and enhance their enjoyment and knowledge of maths.
This is an exam designed to stretch talented students. It is suited to years 7 to 10 level and particularly for those who:
- have completed Maths Enrichment program (Gauss or Noether level)
- are high achievers in the Australian Mathematics Competition
- students who have acquired knowledge in Olympiad problem solving.
We also use 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
The AIMO is conducted in schools under exam conditions for four hours. Students work on their own and may not use calculators electronic devices or other aids.
