Our Competitions and Programs

The Australian Maths Trust runs a range of unique competitions and programs to inspire, extend, and recognise mathematical understanding for primary and secondary students. Each year we run six unique competition events and two long form in-school programs for hundreds of thousands primary and secondary students in Australia and around the world.

Our flagship competition, the Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC), has been delivered in Australian and international schools since 1978, engaging generations of young people in the joy of maths and problem solving.

Our Computational and Algorithmic Thinking (CAT) competition focusses on the development of problem-solving skills through algorithmic thinking.

We also run longer, more challenging competitions for talented students. The Australian Informatics Olympiad (AIO) and the Australian Intermediate Mathematics Olympiad (AIMO) are 3 and 4 hours respectively and results are used to identify students to be invited to participate in the AMT’s high-performance programs.

Maths Challenge and Maths Enrichment are problem-solving programs delivered by teachers over a period of weeks to engage and extend students’ mathematical understanding.

All the problems in our competitions and programs are uniquely crafted each year by our expert mathematicians and maths teachers to challenge and engage your students.

The AMT also delivers world-renowned international mathematics and computing competitions including the Oxford University Computing Challenge and Kangourou san Frontiers, an French maths competition inspired by our very own AMC, that now reaches more than six million young people each year.
