Year 11 student Jason Wang selected to represent Australia at the 2019 Asian Pacific Mathematical Olympiad

Congratulations to Year 11 student, Jason Wang, who has been selected to represent Australia at the 2019 Asian Pacific Mathematical Olympiad. Only a small number of students are selected for this event. Best of luck Jason in the upcoming competition.

Details of the Mathematics Competitions are below:

AMOC Selection School

The Australian Mathematics Olympiad Section School is an invitation only event. Only 46 students from across Australia are selected to attend this week long event.

The purpose of the event is to develop students’ mathematical problem solving skills, and to help the Olympiad Committee to select students who may become part of this year’s Australian team in the International Mathematics Olympiad.

To be selected in this event students had to perform well at last year’s Australian Mathematics Competition. From this they were selected to participate in the Senior Contest (approximately 30 from each state), from this event the top 100 students across Australia are selected to participate in the Australian Mathematics Olympiad.

The committee then selects the top 10 students in senior and junior to participate in this event.

Students who perform well in the Senior Contest may be selected to represent Australia in the APMO.

This year Jason is invited to represent Australia in this event.

The Australian Olympiad Committee select students from this event and the Selection School to represent Australia on in the International Mathematical Olympiad.
