Asia Pacific Mathematical Olympiad for Primary Schools (APMOPS)


The Asia Pacific Mathematical Olympiad for Primary Schools (APMOPS), organised by Hwa Chong Institution, is an annual event that sets out to generate greater interest in Mathematics among pupils in primary schools and sharpening their problem-solving skills.

The Singapore Mathematical Olympiad for Primary School (SMOPS) was inaugurated in 1990. In 2002, SMOPS was renamed as APMOPS as it includes overseas centres from Asia Pacific countries.
