A fast paced competition that combines mathematical problem solving ability with physical activity and teamwork. We run two versions -  one for high school students, called the Schools Math Olympics, and a separate one for university students!



Schools Maths Olympics

For 2020 MUMS presents an online version of our long running School Maths Olympics, a fast-paced, teamwork-centred maths competition.

It will be held on Sunday 23rd August, 1:30pm - 3:30pm on Zoom.

Link to register:

Teams are comprised of 5 students representing their high school. 

If you're a teacher at a high school in Victoria you can register up to two teams (per school) through the eventbrite page.

This year the event is completely free and will be held online. The teacher who registers the team is welcome to spectate but must not assist the competitors during the competition. If the teacher is not available on the day they can allocate one of the students to act as team leader. Please ensure under-18s have parent/guardian permission to attend this online event.

Competitors will be required to join the Zoom session at 1.30pm to sign in as a team, ready to begin the competition at 2pm. All communication within a team during the competition must take place in the Zoom breakout room, however please contact us if you encounter any technical difficulties.

Places are limited so please let us know if your team is no longer able to attend.

This event is part of the 2020 Science Festival.



The UMO is open to all university students and staff, as well as winning teams from the SMO who feel up to the challenge.
