Welcome to the home of the New Zealand Maths Olympiad. We provide maths enrichment materials and select and train New Zealand high-school students for participation in the International Mathematical Olympiad.

If you are wondering where to start on your olympiad journey, I would recommend looking at the workshop problems. The resources page also has some sample problems, and links to lots of other good maths resources. The first stage in the selection process for the NZ squad is the NZMO round 1, which kicks off the program for the year. See the calendar for more details.
