With a focus on creativity, cooperation, teamwork, and problem solving, the WMO is an annual international mathematics competition for students aged 8-13, competing against teams from China, the United Kingdom, Australia, and South Korea. The Spirit of Math team proudly put their skills on display as they showed the world why our exclusive after-school math enrichment program sets the global standard for mathematics education. 
To compete in mathematics at a high-level, participants must have sharp critical analysis skills, which SoM students are taught though Spirit of Math’s unique program, focusing on a sophisticated curriculum of problem solving, logical thinking and co-operation.


For Tristan Scarlett, a member of Spirit of Math's Grades 3-4 Team, the fun of math competitions is the ability to work closely with teammates to achieve a common goal, while learning new math concepts that he will carry with him for a lifetime.


“Competitions are important for math students, because they can learn new things,” Tristin says. “For example, a new type of division they didn’t know before, then they can work on that and it can potentially become something very big in their future.”


Join us in congratulating #SpiritofMath ‘s #TeamCanada on their fantastic performance in Beijing, China!
