The International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO) happens every year thanks to the Science Olympiad Foundation (SOF). Its main goal? To see how good students are at math, from grades 1 to 12. This **Olympiad **gives students some pretty tough math problems to solve. Why? Because it wants to help them become more creative, improve their logic, and learn how to think critically. Plus, it’s a great way for them to feel more confident when facing competition, even from a young age. Oh, and here’s something cool: the top 5% of students who do really well in the IMO level-1 get a shot at competing in the IMO level-2 contest.

The International Mathematics Olympiad, or IMO, is a math competition arranged by the **Science Olympiad** Foundation. It aims to gauge students’ math skills and potential. Those who take part can measure their math knowledge compared to others in their school, city, zone, and even internationally. Besides self-assessment, IMO also rewards achievers with awards and scholarships.
