Due to COVID-19,
many countries have imposed strict travel restrictions, and, we have
regretfully informed of the cancellation of the 7th biennial Singapore
International Mathematics Challenge (SIMC) that should have taken place earlier
in May 2020.
This year SIMC will be going online. Students can solve the problems in the safe environment of their schools or homes.
The online SIMC is co-organised by the NUS High School
of Mathematics & Science (NUS High School), together with the Ministry of
Education, Singapore, and will take place from 13 to 20 November 2020. NUS High School
takes pleasure in inviting a team of
three students from your school to participate in this event.
SIMC is a biennial international
mathematics event that provided a platform to fuel students’ interest in
mathematics and spur them to greater heights. The event brought together bright
mathematics students from around the world who pitted their skills against one
other in a rigorous competition where they demonstrated their creativity and
problem solving skills through a mathematical modelling challenge. A total of 50 schools from 31 countries/regions participated in SIMC 2018. With the SIMC
moving online, we are inviting students from all Singapore secondary schools, Junior
Colleges (JC) and Integrated Programme (IP) schools to take part in the
Challenge together with our overseas participating schools.
The Chief Setter for the SIMC 2020 will be Professor Imre Bennett Leader from Trinity
College, Cambridge University. He will be conducting an online workshop
for the students on the day of Challenge release.
The Challenge will be released on 13 November 2020. Students will be given 1 week to work on the questions before submitting a 10-minute video which documents the team's solutions
