The International Youth Math Challenge (IYMC) is an international mathematics competition that enables students from all countries to prove their math skills and to unleash their creativity.
IYMC 2022 is open for High School and University students to particiapate. It uses the internet to give all students the opportunity to participate regardless of nation, region, or school.
The process is relatively simple, Nigerian college students who are aged 10 to 17 years, and university students ages from 18 years, will receive the same problems in all rounds. However, students that are 18 years or older will have to reach more points.

The pre-final round includes two special problem types that only exist in the IYMC competition: the special-creativity-problems. This problem type represents real examples of mathematical research and requires special originality and advanced understanding of mathematics.
IYMC supplies teachers and schools with further materials and support them in case of questions, requests, or wishes. Teachers are provided with a separate interface to manage submissions of their students for the final round. They have also have an online tool to check submissions and results.
The prizes and awards worth a total of 700 USD which includes cash prizes of 600 USD: All participants (regardless of the results) receive participation certificates to honour their efforts.
