WMC EXPERIENCE

BECAUSE WE ALL WANT TO ENJOY MORE SUCCESS

Schools can now offer in-house collaborative assessment-as-learning experiences for all, anytime, anywhere in the world!

Invites to the WMC Finals are only for students who completed the full Qualifier package, 9 rounds @ SGD900.
At least 3 invites are guaranteed to each school who enter more than 30 students into a Qualifier package.

The SIX SKILLS CATEGORIES are:
  • Challenge - because we want to be the best that we can be
  • Knowledge - because we need secure foundations to communicate, collaborate, challenge, strategise and create better!
  • Collaboration - because we all need others to help us achieve our dreams
  • Strategy - because visionary thinking leads to more profound success
  • Communication - because we need to be able to convince others that our beliefs are sound
  • Creativity - because we enjoy being humans instead of robots
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, Creativity and knowledge skill category has at least one round that is engaged in alone, and within two different teams.

This current global pandemic experience has changed many activities we all do, and values we all hold,in life: SEAMC, NEAMC and the WMC are no different.
We have chosen to embrace the opportunity to keep providing the best experience possible. The exciting new headlines are:
  • Enter as many students as you like - why not make it a school Maths Enrichment Week?
  • You decide when to start (and finish) ALL ROUNDS within the one month period.
    • So you choose which rounds to offer fully online (ideal for schools currently in home-based learning)
    • and which rounds to offer in a school hall (if you're fortunate enough to have a facility)
    • Maybe invite other participating schools to join you for some/all of the rounds (traditional SEAMC and NEAMC style)
  • You diseminate individual transcripts afterwards as you see best
Leaderboards will show rankings from each schools best performing 15 students of each category.

Students towards the top of 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.

**NOTE: Do to the current global pandemic, Finals are currently postponed. Let's see what happens going into 2022.

Payment

Payment is made directly through the secure online gateway, Stripe. Bank transfer invoices incure an additional 10% admin charge for this extra personalisation.
Once registered, more practise material is available to registered student participant accounts.

Our Progression

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 incresingly 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.
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.
We focus upon FOUR of the UN Sustainable Development Goals:
  • 4 Quality Education
  • 5 Gender Equality
  • 10 Reduced Inequality
  • 12 Responsible consumption and production
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.
