**International Mathematics Olympiad** renowned as **IMO** is a competitive exam annually conducted by the Science Olympiad Foundation with the motive of implanting mathematical skills among the students. However, IMO class 2 is considered one of the best exams to help your child build a great mathematical intelligence for their higher education.

## Basic syllabus for IMO exams

The** International Mathematics Olympiad i.e. IMO Class 2 **is bifurcated into 4 sections having 35 questions which carry a total of 40 marks.

The syllabus for International Maths Olympiad is bifurcated into four sections for each standard starting from 1^{st} standard to 10^{th} standard. The motive behind this division is to ensure that the pattern in which the paper is represented in an easy-to-find way. The sub-topics are divided strictly and specifically according to the standard in which your child is and the Mock Tests and Sample Papers are also provided for the same.

## Four Sections in papers are:

a) **Section 1** consists of questions in relation to the Patterns, classifications, analogies, etc. However, from the 6^{th} standard onwards, it contains questions related to Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning.

b) **Section 2** is the **Mathematical Reasoning** section in which questions are related to the topics relevant to that class.

c) Moving ahead towards** Section 3. **It** **is the **Everyday Mathematics** section in this syllabus is the same as in section 2. However, the questions are more of the type of Everyday Mathematics and not of much reasoning.

d) **Section 4** is related to the **Achievers Section**. This section consists of questions based on the topics of Section 2 as well. But the level of questions is more advanced. It is recommended to start this section only after you have completed the other three sections.

## IMO Class 2 syllabus

1) **Section – 1**: Patterns, Geometrical Shapes, Analogy, Ranking Test, Measuring Units, Grouping of Figures, Coding-Decoding, Embedded Figures Odd One Out.

2) **Section – 2**: Numerals, Number Names, and Number Sense, Length, Weight, Capacity, Time, Temperature, Money, Lines, Shapes and Solids, Pictographs, Patterns, Computation Operations.

3) **Section – 3**: Syllabus as per Section – 2.

4) **Section – 4**: Syllabus as per Section – 2 of Higher Order Thinking Questions.
