The Olympiad is organized by Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, MIREA — Russian Technological University, Northern (Arctic) Federal University named after M.V. Lomonosov and Euler Foundation.
School students of grades 5–11 from Russia and of equivalent grades from all over the world are invited to participate.
Participation in the competition is free. All school students can take part in the first round and the winners of the first round are invited to the second round. Winners of the previous Olympiad (with diplomas of any degree) are also invited directly to the second round. Participants with the best results in the second round will be awarded with diplomas and invited (with reduced fee) to the international mathematical camp «Formulo de Integreco».
You can send your questions to the organizers to [email protected]formulo.org.
Chronology of eventsAll the news about the Olympiad are posted below from newest to oldest.
These are the preliminary results (updated in the evening of 25.03) of the final round and problems’ solutions:

- participants who reached the threshold score are painted yellow.
Until the final round in the end of February!
The organizing Committee of the Olympiad had finished processing received submissions and, due to the technical difficulties during the qualifying stage, sent information letters to all participants.
Please check the email you provided with the solutions!
P.S. If you haven’t got any letters, please contact the organizing Committee by e‑mail [email protected]formulo.org as soon as possible!
Thank you for participating! The Olympiad Committee has started processing and checking your solutions.
E‑mail confirmations about receiving your solutions should arrive in a few days, otherwise we will contact you.
Preliminary results will be published in December.
Dear participants of Olympiad,
Due to the heavy server load, the notification letters of receiving your solutions are sent with big delay :(
We apologize in advance and ask for your patience.
P. S. Even in the worst case scenario (if your solutions will get lost after all), we still have your application and will contact you in order to get the solutions after the end of the 1st round.
Here is the qualifying (remote) round of the competition. You can solve problems until November 12, 2019 inclusively.
Please remember that your solution of every problem should include not only the right answer but the full reasoning as well.
We will be happy if your friends who like mathematics also participate. However, every assignment should be done individually; otherwise, your submission will not be considered.
You can write your solutions by hand and scan them or type them using a text editor. Solutions should be written in English, Esperanto, French, Georgian, German, Kazakh, Persian, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian or Uzbek. Use of other languages should be agreed with the organizers in advance.
You do not need to repeat the text of the problems in your paper; please write down your solutions only. For anonymous grading, you should not write your name on the paper sheets with solutions.
The winners of Olympiad 2018/19 (those with Diplomas I‑III) can participate directly in the final round.
How to submit solutions
The solutions should be submitted to the Jury by November 12 using this online form:
You can upload both text files (in TXT, DOC, DOCX or PDF formats) and scans of paper works (in JPG and PNG formats). The total number of files should not exceed 10. The files with the solutions of the problems should not contain the surname, name and other personal data of the participant!
Nota Bene! It is not allowed to use the same registration data for sending works of several participants. If you are a teacher and want to send papers of several students, please write about this to the organizing Committee, and we will offer a convenient way to do it.
You can send your questions (but not the solutions of problems) to the organizers to [email protected]formulo.org.
There will be two rounds in the International Mathematical Olympiad «Formula of Unity»/«The Third Millennium».
The first round, by correspondence, will be held from October 15 to November 12.
It is possible to obtain the list of problems and further announcements related to the Olympiad via email — register here :)
The second (final) round of the Olympiad «Formula of Unity»/«The Third Millennium» will be held at the same time (approximately February 2020) at multiple sites in various countries. The winners of the first round will be invited to take it.
