The Visual-Spatial Mathlympics is a concept competition that poses carefully curated questions that draws on the overarching theme of Visual-Spatial Intelligence and Mathematics.


We hope to help to foster a new generation of spatially literate pupils who are proficient and established in thinking spatially, being able to approach problems through their knowledge of concepts of space and the appropriate processes of spatial reasoning.
