Nepal waves the Mathematics Olympiad

Nepal waves the Mathematics Olympiad

International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO) was first held in Romania in 1959 with 7 countries participating and the next one being the 55th +International Mathematical Olympiad 2014 to be held in Cape Town, +South Africa, from 3 to 13 July 2014. IMO was inspired by the idea of recognizing talented individuals and motivating them to dig deep into their mathematical knowledge. In the course of its glorious history of 55 years, IMO has now expanded to over 100 countries but still not knocked our doors yet. Through organization of Nationwide Mathematics Olympiad, +Bloom Nepal School is setting the stage to introduce Nepal to IMO's in three to four years from now.

The first nationwide mathematics Olympiad was organized on February 23, 2013. Second is being organized on February 22, 2014. The three-hour long test of ingenuity in Maths, which involves questions that are independent of the materials covered in classes, will be held simultaneously in seven major cities of Nepal. These include Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur from the valley and Butwal, Pokhara, Biratnagar and Bharatpur from outside. The competition is open for all the student of grade 11, 12, A-levels and IB from all across the country. In order to encourage large number of students to participate, the registration is conducted via SMS with the service provided by the SMS partner +Sparrow SMS

This time, +Bloom Nepal expects a rise in the number of participants to over 700 participants. Also, as more people know about the Nationwide Mathematics Olympiad students will also perform better. Last year, over 28% of the participants scored a 0 out of the total of 60. Top three winners of the National Mathematics Olympiad will be awarded thirty thousand, twenty thousand and ten thousand respectively. Top ten winners will be matched to Bloom Nepal's network in the US who will guide them through application process ranging from selecting of colleges to preparing of SAT and writing of essays.

Indifference towards Math contests has been formidable discouragement to pursuing engaging Mathematics. While Nepal has already been represented in International Physics Olympiad, we have not been able to establish a strong base for Mathematical education. This is where Bloom Nepal hopes to make a difference. Nationwide mathematics Olympiad seeks to select the brightest of the mathematical prodigies and help them spread their wings.
