There are three types of Olympiad Examinations conducted by the Orissa
Mathematical society

**Junior/ Regional/
Senior Mathematical
Olympiad**:

AIM

The Indian National Mathematical Olympiad (INMO)
is an annual contest organized by the National Board for Higher Mathematic (NBHM),
a unit of the Department of Atomic Energy, Govt. of India, in order to
spot and nurture mathematical talent among students. The Orissa Mathematical
Society (OMS) conducts a Regional Mathematical Olympiad (RMO) every to select
and train 30 students who can take part in the INMO. In order to encourage the
students to imbibe mathematical interested an early age and to continue it till
the graduation level, we also conduct two more examinations along with RMO, i.e,
JMO and SMO.

AWARDS AND CERTIFICATES

Gold and Silver medals will be awarded to RMO
candidates who secure the top positions at the Regional level. Prizes and
certificates will be given to the best thirty candidates at the Zonal level.
There will be special prizes for girl candidates and candidates from rural
areas. Merit Certificates will be awarded to all the candidates who come upto
the level expected by the evaluation board. BHRATRU SMRUTI TRUST will award cash
prizes of 2,000/- and RS. 1,000/- respectively to the students securing first
and second positions in RMO. Prizes and merit certificates will also be given to
some top successful candidates appearing in the JMO and SMO tests.

ELIGIBILITY

Students of 1st year and 2nd year of +2/ Class
XI and Class XII with Mathematics and bright students of Class IX and X are
eligible to appear in RMO test.

Students of B A/ B Sc/ B E/ B. Tech/ BCA
courses are eligible to appear in the SMO test. Students of VI, VII and VIII
classes are eligible to appear in JMO test.

SYLLABUS

JMO : Sound
knowledge of Mathematics of middle schools.

RMO : Sound
knowledge of Mathematics up to class X.

SMO : Sound
knowledge of Graduate Level Mathematics on topics such as Sets, Relations,
Functions, Inequalities, Complex Numbers, Permutation and Combination,
Probability, Linear Algebra, Differentiation & Integration, Maxima-Minima,
Taylor's Series & Power Series, Ordinary Differentiatial Equations, Vector
Calculus, Multiple Integral.

The questions will not be of
routine type. The test questions would be of a nature requiring insight,
critical approach, logical thinking, the power of application of knowledge in
solving problems.

**Rural Mathematics Talent Search**

Objective:

To spot and nurture talent in
rural students.

Scope:

Class V student onwards.

Activities:

Mathematics aptitude test (Junior
Rural Mathematical Olympiad) amongst Class VI rural students region wise. There
are broadly three regions, Western Orissa, Southern Orissa and Coastal Orissa.

- The thirty top successful students from each region
(from JRMO test) be selected.
- We propose to organize one week training camp in headquarter
of each of these regions, along with some selected school teachers from the
region twice a year. For each batch such camps shall be held for 3 years
consecutively.
- The training should be such that they can acquire
skill to feel confident to sit in all Orissa RMO test with the urban candidates.
- Region specific Mathematics literature shall be
developed in vernacular language and shall be supplied to the trainees and
teachers.
