The first 300 schools (from 600+) in Moscow entered the top five of the world's schools, and the first 100 schools became almost the best in the world, behind only Shanghai.
In the field of mathematical literacy, Moscow schools show the highest results. The top 100 schools in Moscow by their results were ahead of Singapore and Hong Kong. 26% of students are at the highest levels of mathematical literacy. Moreover, if we compare students and schools that showed the highest result in mathematical literacy, then these results turned out to be higher than the leading educational system of PISA 2012 - Shanghai.
The first mathematical Olympiad took place in 1884 in Austria-Hungary. In the Soviet Union, the first olympiads were held
1933 in Tbilisi,
1934 in Leningrad,
1935 in Moscow.
Moscow and St. Petersburg Mathematical Olympiads for schoolchildren are the oldest mathematical Olympiads in Russia. Moscow Mathematical Olympiad is one of the oldest and authoritative in the world (MMO). In 1978, Maxim Kontsevich won the MMO. In 1998, he received the Fields Medal Prize (Nobel Prize for Mathematicians). MMO traditionally takes place in February-March. Within the framework of the Moscow Mathematical Olympiad, a traditional "Mathematical Holiday" (Математический Праздник) for 6-7 classes in the middle February.
The traditional place of the Olympiad ("Mathematical Holiday") is Moscow Lomonosov's State University. About 10,000 schoolchildren of the 6th and 7th grades took part in the 28th festival, february 19.
The "Holiday" (Праздник) includes an olympiad, interesting lectures for schoolchildren and parents. While the jury checks the work, the guys participate in mathematical games, solve entertaining puzzles, watch math cartoons. In the evening, the winners and prize winners of the Olympiad are awarded. http://olympiads.mccme.ru/matprazdnik/
This year the Mathematical Festival was held in St. Petersburg - in the Physics and Mathematics Lyceum # 30. Also the "Holiday" was held in Kharkov, Ukrain.
