What is SMC

Introducing the Singapore Math Challenge (SMC), a platform showcasing top math practices and challenging students globally.

Last year, over 20,000 students participated. Leading countries use international benchmarks to enhance education, as seen in Singapore’s globally-informed syllabus.

As the New Zealand host, we emphasize the benefits for our students, who can gain valuable skills and international exposure by participating in Singapore's math program.
