Schools Maths Olympics

The Schools Maths Olympics (SMO) is a fast-paced, teamwork-centred annual maths competition for high school students.

This year, SMO will take place on the University of Melbourne Parkville campus on Sunday 21 August from 12:00 to 1:30pm as part of the University of Melbourne Open Day 2022.

In this competition, student teams will tackle interesting maths problems in the span of one hour. You can check out past SMO problems here. Besides the medals and prizes presented to the top three teams, this competition is an excellent opportunity for your students to discover the joy of mathematical problem-solving in a collaborative environment.
Each Victorian high school is allowed to register one team of 5 students in the SMO. If you're a teacher at a Victorian high school, please register by Sunday 14 August.
