The 2014 competition has ended. Information regarding the 2015 competition will be announced in the near future.
The MISE Tournament program is an exciting annual mathematical problem solving competition for 11-17 years old students in Ghana. The competition is in two divisions; Junior and Senior. The Junior Tournament is for students 14 year old or younger and the Senior Tournament for students 17 year old or younger. The Tournament provides an excellent opportunity for these aspiring young mathematicians to develop their problem solving skills, get tournament experience, bond and connect with friends and others from different schools.
There are three rounds of competition. The first round is an OPEN Exam and it is available to any interested student who satisfies the age criteria. Thereafter the top 10% highest scoring students on the OPEN Exam are invited to participate in the Invitational Semi-Final Exam.
Top performing semi-finalists are named finalists and are further invited to participate in the Mathematical Olympiad Program (MOP). At MOP, students explore and refine their skills in advanced problem solving techniques (conjecture, proofs, and analysis) through advanced masterclasses and then write a Final Team Selection Exam which will result in some students earning the right to represent Ghana at the International Mathematical Olympiad Finals the following year.
The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is the World Championship Mathematics Competition for pre-university students and is held annually in a different country. The first IMO was held in 1959 in Romania, with 7 countries participating. It has gradually expanded to over 100 countries from 5 continents. In Ghana MISE Foundation is the only organisation authorized to recruit and train Ghana's team for this prestigious international event.
