It is an original idea inspired by athletics and it is the first Mathematical Olympiad in Singapore which allows participants to use calculators.
To create excitement and enthusiasm in Mathematics among Primary School students through a competition that is of a high standard.
To provide deserving students with a prestigious achievement record for their portfolio.
To introduce to the educational arena a mathematical competition that allows students to use the calculator, in keeping with the current educational trend.
To release, as a form of enrichment Mathematics resources to the Primary Schools, the publication of competition questions and detailed solutions, which they could use to engage particular pupils or the student body at large.
