8 October 2017 — International Mathematical Olympiad "Tournament of Towns" (Fall round)

The Tournament of the Towns is an international mathematical olympiad for school children aged 13 to 18. It has taken place every year since 1980 and has two rounds, one in the Autumn and one in Spring, both with two levels. It is not obligatory to participate in all rounds or levels.

Children from more than 100 cities in over 25 countries take part in the tournament each year and we invite anybody aged 13 to 18 with an interest in maths to join us. Participation is free of charge and the event takes place in both Russian and English at our High Street Kensington School (First floor, 37 Kensington High Street, W8 5ED).

Pupils at the London School of Mathematics and Programming produced brilliant results in April last year when we ran the Tournament for the first time in London and we look forward to London taking a strong position in the world ranking of participating cities this year.

The day commences at 11am. and children will have up to five hours (with a break for lunch) to solve a set of problems.

The Tournament of Towns differs from many other competitions through its philosophy of having the contestant rely far more upon ingenuity than their rote learning. It also allows participants to select the problems they prefer and for each paper the participant's score is the sum of his or her three best answers.

Join in, take part and win! For the winners there are very exciting awards from the London School of Mathematics and Programming and the Russian Cultural Center in the United Kingdom.

Pupils whose performance is outstanding will receive an invitation to the famous Annual International Mathematics Tournament of Towns Summer Conference .
