Dear Parents/Mathletes,

With the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics just starting a while ago, I believe many of you will be riveting up your screens watching the Olympic games unfold. But why should all the much-earned glory, and more importantly, those coveted gold medals go to those we see on TV? Don’t you/your child deserve a medal for their hard work training for the math Olympics this season? I sure think so.

As one of our subscribers, we wanted you to be the first to take advantage of Our Gold Medal savings off our March Math Olympiad Prep Courses.

  • Raffles Primary World Math Competition -Junior Training
