Ontario Mathematics Olympics

The Ontario Mathematics Olympics (OMO) has for many years provided a fun, challenging mathematics competition for teams of grade seven and grade eight students. It has traditionally been held in the first week of June. At the event, students solve questions based on the grade seven and grade eight Ontario mathematics curriculum. Some questions are to be answered individually while other questions require a team approach. Students demonstrate their understanding of the mathematical concepts, their ability to solve problems and to communicate their thinking, and their capacity to apply their mathematical knowledge in various situations.

In an effort to remain responsive to the ever-changing needs of our wonderful students, OAME is currently undertaking a review of the structure and protocols for the OMO, and the provincial OMO has been suspended while this review takes place. However, your local Chapters of OAME may still be offering the Regional Math Olympics events. For more information, check with your Chapter Math Olympics Coordinator. All of the current chapter Math Olympics Coordinators are listed below. If you are not sure what Chapter is in your area, go to our Chapter Locator.

For local information, contact your Math Olympics Coordinator, in your local chapter:
