The International Olympiad of Mathematics (iOM) is a yearly math competition organised by the SilverZone Foundation. It’s designed for students who study Mathematics in school and follows the curriculum set by CBSE, ICSE, and State Boards. iOM provides a chance for students to measure their skills on an international scale.

Participating in iOM helps students build a strong foundation in Mathematics, aligning with what they’re learning in school. After the Olympiad, students receive a detailed report highlighting their strengths and areas for improvement, motivating them to excel academically. iOM doesn’t just stop at the school level. It recognises and rewards talented math students at both national and international levels.
