The SAMF Maths Olympiad Training Programme is a free correspondence problem solving programme for Grade 7 to 12 learners.  The programme aims to identify talented mathematical minds and develop their talent through a series of assignments. The participants will learn mathematical problems-solving techniques and interesting mathematical concepts, which will also help learners to prepare for the second and third rounds of the South African Mathematics Olympiad.

The Training Programme is a free distance learning programme course which is open to all school learners who:

  • Want to be considered to represent South Africa at the International Mathematical Olympiad and the Pan-African Mathematic Olympiad.
  • Want to improve their mathematical knowledge and skills.
