University Maths Olympics (UMO)

Each year, MUMS holds an event known as the University Maths Olympics. This is a competition combining fast-paced walking, lightning-quick problem solving, and the ol' hip-'n'-shoulder. To win, a team requires a generous mix of brains and brawn, in order to knockout (in more ways than one) their competitors.

If you're up for bringing your team of five to victory via a combination of mental and athletic skills, then this is the competition for you! The problems are based more on lateral thinking than manual calculation. They require no knowledge of mathematics above high school level.

The competition lasts for approximately one hour, and prizes are awarded to the top three teams.

When: 12:30pm-2pm, Tuesday 20th September 2016

Where: Wright Theatre, Medical Building
