1999 Schools Maths Olympics - Sunday 15 August

This is the first year that the Schools Maths Olympics were held. Previously, school teams could enter the University Maths Olympics directly. However, by separating the Olympics into two events, we have encouraged greater involvement from schools by being able to include more of them, and by using maths problems specifically tailored to their level. Needless to say, the Schools Maths Olympics gave many high school students a look at Melbourne Uni life in a somewhat different perspective!

The best school teams qualified for entry to the University Maths Olympics on 13 September 1999.

Thanks must go to Philip Swedosh for hosting the event with his undeniable wit and also to Tony Wirth and Chaitanya Rao for doing much of the organization.
