What is Sasmo ? 
  • (SASMO) is an international mathematics competition that is organized by Singapore International Math Contests Centre (SIMCC) and supported by non-profit foundations International Scholastic Trust (IST) and SASMO Advisory Council (SAC) with more than 30,000 participants from 21 countries in 2019.

  • The SASMO Team with the support of the Advisory Council spends countless hours carefully developing contest papers that will touch on both school and Olympiad maths. This combined effort allows participants to do better compared to pure-Olympiad papers, since they are familiar with some questions and can put on their thinking caps for others, bringing out the inner mathematician in them.

  • With realistic and high standards, SASMO contests aim to stretch the untapped thinking potential of the student population, their participation in SASMO will help them improve in school mathematics as well as higher-order thinking skills (HOTS).

  • SASMO caters to the top 40% of the student population and it aims to cultivate students’ interest in mathematical problem solving to develop mathematical intuition, reasoning, logical, creative, and critical thinking.

Content
  •  SASMO is open to Year 2 to 11 (Primary 2 to Secondary 5)

  • All students who have won the Gold/ Silver/ Bronze Award in SASMO 2020 will be invited to join SIMOC (Singapore International Mathematics Olympiad Challenge) in Singapore and AIMO (Asia International Mathematical Olympiad) in South Korea. Students who have won the Gold/ Silver Award will be invited to join STEAM AHEAD 2020: IJMO (International Junior Math Olympiad) in Bali, Indonesia. Contest entry is available on a first-come-first-served basis, so register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
