World Class Math Instruction Your Children Will Love!
RSM Foundation IMC
The RSM International Math Content (IMC) is a traditional math olympiad with challenging problems that promote a deeper level of thinking. IMC is written by professionals from the Russian School of Mathematics and problems are based on those from leading math textbooks from around the world that allows parents to gain insight into their child’s level of math knowledge compared to his/her international peers.
Participation in IMC normally takes place in-person at RSM-Metrowest but this year due to COVID 19 restrictions, IMC will be conducted online. Special circumstances for 2021 IMC also include the following:
- No participation gifts will be provided;
- No Olympiad Booklets will be provided;
- RSM student-winners’ medals and certificates will be available at RSM-Metrowest for pick up in late June.
Registration for the first round of the RSM IMC is now open.
Round I is a 30 min Online Challenge based on fun math problems gathered from math textbooks around the world. The first round opens on the first Monday of February (February 1st, 2021) and will be available for 2 weeks to complete.
IMC Round I top scorers will be invited to the IMC Round II that will take place online over several days on a week of April 5.
Participation is FREE and open to all students in grades 3-10. Parents can also choose to request a performance report for a cost of $20.
The results of IMC are available in the first week in May. Determined winners are: Gold, Silver, Bronze and Honorable Mention. Winners are invited to a RSM Award Ceremony and NMCP Classes.
This year, practice problems that consist of last year’s Round I and Round II problems are available to students not only via the IMC Dashboard that they gain access to after the registration, but also via the Student Portal.
Additionally students can sign up to receive practice problems in their inbox weekly by going to www.rsmfoundation.org.

“I have been going to RSM-MetroWest in Framingham for eight years now, and I have loved every year of it. Going to RSM has helped me excel in school, and develop my love for mathematics. The classes not only support the school curriculum but also go beyond it by challenging students with more advanced problems. I love the challenge, and I believe it has only made my interest in mathematics grow stronger. I am truly grateful for the knowledge and skills that it has given me, and I would not be where I am now if it weren’t for RSM-MetroWest.”
– Prakalya Chandrasekar, 10th grader at the Advanced Math & Science Academy
I enjoy advanced math because I am learning about new methods. One of my favorites is the mushroom. With that, you can find the LCM. I like my teacher, Mrs. Alla Farizon. She is very nice and she makes sure you understand the topic. I also like friends in the class. They are fun to play with at break. At my regular school, in my math class, there are a lot of kids who complain about math. But here no one complains about it, so it is much nicer. Every student is excited to learn and the best part is….. it’s math!

My son had a wonderful experience at RSM, Framingham, his mathskills improved considerably and was challenged enough to participate in competitions!! Needless to say his school math became very easy for him.

My favorite thing about advanced math is learning new things. I get new problems to solve. My teacher, Mr. Gene (Sigalovsky) is fun. He explains how to do a method to solve the problem. My teacher is very nice and he is also very fun
- Student, level 3.
I want to take this opportunity to thank you Anna, and the School of Mathematics, for broadening our son's field of vision on mathematics. He has seen many topics and ways to approach them that he would not have had access to otherwise.

Our son has been with RSM-MetroWest for several years. At the end of the 7th grade he took the Math SAT and earned a perfect score of 800. We just wanted to thank Russian Math for preparing him so well.
