Regional Mathematical Olympiad 2014 in West Bengal is over.

Hope participants enjoyed solving the problems.

Participants who wrote both the MCQ test and the short-answer type test

are requested to wait for the results.

Very best wishes for all the participants!!

The questions of pre-RMO test (2014) in West Bengal can be seen here.

The test was based on MCQ’s.

However, the questions are NOT given in MCQ form here.

_______________________________

A Mathematical Olympiad is a problem solving competition open to all
"mathletes". The aim of the competition is to test innate problem
solving skills. The problems are restricted to those that require
minimal background and high ingenuity. Since one of the goals of
such olympiads is to identify talent at a young age, these olympiads
are usually restricted to students not yet admitted to any
undergraduate programme.

The
International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is the World Championship
Mathematics Competition for High School students and is held annually
in a different country. The first IMO was held in 1959 in Romania, with
7 countries participating. It has gradually expanded to over 100
countries from 5 continents. IMO 2012 was held in Mar del Plata,
Argentina. IMO 2013 was held in Santa Marta, Colombia.

India has been participating in the IMO since 1989 and hosted it in Mumbai in 1996. The 6-member Indian team for the IMO is selected through a three-step procedure, organised by the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE) on behalf of the National Board for Higher Mathematics (NBHM) and funded by the Department of Atomic Energy, Government of India.

In IMO 2014, the Indian Team members and their performance were as follows: Soumik Ghosh (Honourable mention), Jeet Mohapatra (Bronze medal), Sagnik Saha (Silver medal), Supravat Sarkar (Honourable mention), Anish Prasad Sevekari (Bronze medal), Chaitanya Tappu (Bronze medal).

In IMO 2013, the following members of Indian Team won medals: Sagnik Saha
(Silver), Shubham Sinha (Silver), Pranav
Nuti (Bronze), Anish Prasad Sevekari (Bronze), Pallav Goyal (Bronze).

- Step 0: The RMO Training Camps (RMOTCs)

Several RMOTC's have been organized of late:
(i) during May 28-June 2, 2012 and October 30-November 2, 2012 at ISI,
Kolkata, (ii) during 12-14 June, 2012 and 6-7 November, 2012
at North Bengal University.

If any academic institution wants to organize similar camps with help from us, the organizers are encouraged to contact us by sending email to rmo@isical.ac.in. We shall be glad to support such activities by providing resource personnel. We shall consider supporting such camps even when the number of participants is small.

- Step 1: The Regional Mathematical Olympiad (RMO)

The Regional
Mathematical Olympiad is a state level examination, a stepping
stone towards the national level examination, the INMO. The next RMO (RMO-2014)
will be held on Sunday, December 7, 2014 during 10.00 a.m. to 12 noon and during 1.00 p.m.
to 4.00
p.m.

The next RMO (RMO-2014) will consist of two tests, the first of duration 2 hours and the second of 3 hours. The first test will be based on multiple-choice questions (MCQ), and in the second about 6 to 7 problems will be asked which the applicants will have to solve. We shall grade all the answer-scripts of the first MCQ-based test and based on the performance of the participants in it (i.e., the first test), we shall select an appropriate number of participants whose answer-scripts of the second test will be graded.

- Step 1.5: The Indian National Mathematical Olympiad Training Camp (INMOTC)

An
INMOTC is organized at Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata (ISI, Kolkata), 203 B.T. Road, Kolkata 700108 every
year.

- Mukul Chaudhuri Memorial Prize

We are
happy to announce the establishment of Mukul Chaudhuri Memorial Prize
for the best girl student from each Class VIII to XII, irrespective of
whether they are selected for INMO or not, provided they score a
minimum qualifying marks. The Prize, in form of books, is made possible
by a generous gift from Professor Soma Chaudhuri of Iowa State
University, in the memory of her mother.

Mukul Chaudhuri (1922 - 2007) was a talented student of
mathematics. She received the Kirtichand-Mackenzie Memorial Gold Medal
in 1938, awarded to the candidate with the highest marks in mathematics
in the Calcutta University Matriculation Exam. She completed her
Bachelor's degree in Mathematics in 1942. However her academic career
was cut short due to the political situation at the time (Partition of
India). She became a school teacher in mathematics and taught in a
variety of schools, both in India and abroad. Even though she couldn't
further her own academic career, she encouraged numerous girls to
pursue higher education in mathematics-related disciplines.
