Mathematics without borders – Winter 2016

DEAR FRIENDS OF MATHEMATICS,

The first round of the III International Tournament Mathematics without Borders – Autumn 2015, has now ended.
14,262 students from 25 countries on 4 continents took part in the contest.
Congratulations to the winners!

We are pleased to invite students from your school to participate in the Winter round of the III International tournament Mathematics without Borders for students from groups 1 to 9 (7 – 18-year olds).
The Winter round of the tournament is open to all interested students from groups 1 to 9 (7 – 18-year olds), regardless of whether they participated in the autumn round and if they did participate, regardless of their result. According to the tournament regulation, each round of the tournament has a separate ranking and separate rewards.
Each participant must take part in at least two of the three rounds (Autumn, Winter and Spring). The two best results (two of two, or two of three, depending on how many rounds each contestant participated in) will be taken into consideration when choosing the finalists.
Every contestant will receive a personal certificate and the winners will receive medals as well.
The tests are available in the official languages ​​of the tournament: Bulgarian, English, Russian and Kazakh. If necessary the schools in the different countries should provide translations of the test in the language that is required by the participants.
