Welcome to the Asia’s First Online Mathematics Competition-Engima 2017
What is Enigma? Enigma is a bi-annual series of online, academic challenges designed to be a fun way for students in grades 3 to 12 to learn core constructs in Mathematics, Computational and Algorithmic Thinking (CAT) and English without academic or peer pressure.
Who runs an Enigma Challenge? Enigma is conducted in affiliation with the Australian Mathematics Trust (AMT) (with a 35 year history of engaging with 25 million students in over 30 countries), and a volunteer team of award winning educators and researchers. Meet our contest panelhere.
Who is eligible for Enigma? All students in relevant grade levels are eligible to take part in the challenges – grades 3 to 12 for Mathematics, grades 5 to 12 for CAT, and grades 5 to 12 for English. There are no other selection criteria.
What is Computational and Algorithmic Thinking (CAT)? Computational and Algorithmic Thinking is a new literacy critical to success in coding, computer science and STEM. The CAT challenge introduces students to foundational computational thinking skills without requiring coding skills.
How do I register for Enigma? Enigma supports open registration by both schools/educators as well as students/parents. Sign uphere. or scroll below for the registration form.
This is a 2-step registration process. You will be asked to enter basic information before being re-directed to the full registration page.

How much is the registration fee? Engima is a fun-free competition for all students in grades 3 to 12 for Mathematics, grades 5 to 12 for CAT, and grades 5 to 12 for English. Hence there is no fee to register. However if students wish to purchase the warm-up papers, they can do so at a small fee of USD $2.99.
When is Enigma conducted? Enigma is a bi-annual challenge conducted in March/April and October/November every year within a flexible 8-week window. The first Enigma Challenge is scheduled to begin in October, 2016.
