United World College Math Tournament
Welcome to UWCMT!
The United World College Math Tournament (UWCMT) aims to revolutionise math competitions and tournaments. What do we mean by this? Consider our innovative rounds. For example, the Sustainable Development Goal Round where every student could appreciate how mathematics is used to solve global problems. We want to provide students with the most innovative math tournament experience. You could check out the rest of the rounds here.
Our tournament is inclusive in two ways. First of all, our tournament’s Qualifier rounds are architected in a way such that both math competition newcomers and veterans could enjoy. Many of our Qualifier problems are not complicated and could be solved by many students, but there are a few challenging problems for experienced students to enjoy. The other important way our tournament is inclusive is by including mathematicians from different cultures and backgrounds. Mathematics is universal and is explored by people from a variety of cultures. Despite this, most mathematics is centered around western mathematics. We aim to make mathematics more welcoming to different people by including mathematicians from different backgrounds and from minority groups. Our sample problems should illustrate these points.
“To inspire students for change by creating a lively, purposeful and inclusive maths tournament with focus on resolving global issues.”
Our Vision is that:
"Students from different backgrounds and mathematical skills are able to appreciate the beauty, applicability and diversity of mathematics."
