Because we all want to enjoy more success
The World Mathematics Championships®
AKA SEAMC and NEAMC
are for schools to offer collaborative assessment-as-learning experiences for all their children anywhere in the world
Open to 9-18 year olds across FOUR LEVELS of competition:
|Number of Rounds||4||4||9||9|
|Duration||Anytime across 1 week||Anytime across 1 week||Anytime across 1 month||Anytime across 1 month|
With a maximum of these 9 rounds:
The 6 skills categories are:
Individuals focus on the Challenge rounds alone.
Collaboration teams and Communication teams are in a maximum of 3s.
Some rounds are subject specific skills and procedures - knowledge intensive.
Other rounds are focused towards planing and executing a strategy.
There are rounds that depend upon creativity - developing new and imaginative ideas.
Each strategy, creative and knowledge skill category has at least one round that is engaged in alone, and within two different teams.
UPDATE MAY 2021
This Covid experience since late 2019 has changed many activities we do, and values we hold, in life. SEAMC, NEAMC and the WMC are no different.
We have embraced the challenge to keep providing the best experience possible. The exciting headlines are:
Leaderboards will show rankings from each schools best performing 15 students of each category.
Payment is made directly through the secure online gateway, Stripe. Requests for individual bank transfer invoices and/or other currencies will incure a 10% admin charge for this personalisation.
Students within the leaderboard are invited to the Finals of the World Mathematics Championships®. This is designed to be fun, collaborative and cultural experience for all.
The schedule throughout is very busy DOING MATHEMATICS, with a healthy mix of seriousness and laughter, geekiness and play, indoors and out!
Participants sometimes think deeply alone, work in teams, be inspired by speakers and create using their imagination!
This unique platform enables participants to network and build lasting friendships and life-long memories - usually the main highlight of their schooling years.
REGISTERING WILL BE AVAILBLE from July

It all started through the South East Asian Mathematics Competition plus; SEAMC+ which was concieved at the turn of the milenium by Steve Warry, an enthusiastic teacher with the Alice Smith School, Kuala Lumpur and had a belief that Mathematics could be a 'spectator sport'. Tragically, he passed away the week prior to the competition, but it went ahead and Steve's dream became a reality. Due to popular demand, in February 2014 a parallel North... version of the same competition (NEAMC) became a reality within Nanjing International School, China. In June 2018, Trinity College hosted the inaugral Finals with the prestigeous University of Melbourne. In October 2018 we created Secondary level, and Primary level was concieved in February 2020 just as Covid was hitting.
We focus upon FOUR of the UN Sustainable Development Goals:
We believe summative assessment should be a demonstration of depth-in-learning and be inclusive; not elitism nor speed at doing superficial algorithms of difficult subject content. For this reason, the World Mathematics Championships® group students who have been exposed to similar levels of mathematics.
Now with the proven capability of operating fully online throughout 2020-21, we hope the next few seasons will see us expand further around the world and influence significantly more children to enjoy their love for learning, through mathematics.
