Overview of the WMC Prime Plus level Finals


  • 2 full days of total immersement
  • 6 skills categories for prizes
    • Challenge - because we want to be the best that we can be
    • Knowledge - because we need secure foundations to communicate, collaborate, challenge, strategise and create better!

    • Creativity - because we enjoy being humans instead of robots
  • Transcripts of relative attainment
  • Individual medals within each skill category
  • Silver ticket invites to a next junior level Qualifier of the World Mathematics Championships®


Logistics

Parents sign-up, accept the Ticket invite, complete the registration form and pay the registration fees.

The competition is between 8am and about 6pm on both days: Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd September.

Participants are to arrive at KMIDS for 8am each day and may be collected from 6pm from the entrance. Some might be accompanied by recognised teaching staff (as agreed between parents and their school). Only adults with certificates permitting them to work with children will be allowed into KMIDS during the competition.

Transport
We are providing a shuttle bus between the Suvarnabhumi Suite Hotel and KMIDS on both days. It will leave the hotel at 7:30am and return by 7pm. This will cost Baht 300/ per participant for all 4 trips. To reserve a place in this bus, there is a question within the registration form. Participants will then be invoiced for the participation fee and transport together.

Accommodation
As per the above transport arrangement from the Suvarnabhumi Suite Hotel, it would be wise to stay within or close to there if you would like to utilise that service.

Food
Morning snack, bento box lunch and afternoon snack with drinks will be provided on both days.


The Competition Rounds

Individuals focus on the
Challenge rounds alone.

Inter-nation teams engage within the Collaboration rounds together.

Some rounds are (subject specific skills and procedures) knowledge intensive.
Other rounds are (plan and execute)
strategy focused.
There are rounds that depend upon (new and imaginative ideas)
creativity.

Each strategy, creative and knowledge skill category has at least one round that is engaged in alone, in intra-nation teams and in inter-nation teams.
