CMI Tessellate - (S.T.E.M.S) Scholastic Test of Excellence in Mathematical Sciences

Chennai Mathematical Institute (CMI), a premiere center for research and education in Mathematical Sciences, is organizing a nationwide (India) Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science Contest, the S.T.E.M.S, as a part of the college fest Tessellate.

The Olympiads will be held in the beginning of January. Registrations are open: Link

By participating in S.T.E.M.S, you get to show off your Mathematics/Physics/Computer Science skills at a national level. And have the chance to attend a Science Camp at CMI, where you'd meet some of the finest mathematicians and physicists in the country, not to mention the gifts.

The camp will feature some of the best Mathematicians, Physicists and Computer Scientists from some of the best research institutes in India, like CMI, ISI Bangalore, IMSc, IISc and the IIT's, etc. (The complete list of speakers shall be uploaded soon.) CMI shall provide travel fare, food and accomodation for the selected participants. Students from all age groups will have fair representation. It promises to be a great opportunity for the students to interact with CMI-ites and get an insight about college mathematics and college life(probably in that order, though). The camp shall also feature student talks from students of the aforementioned institutes. They shall also receive certificates signed by some of the best mathematicians of the country, books and other prizes. The top 100 participants shall receive certificates of participation.

Can you provide previous year papers/sample questions?

Yes! Check out this wiki! We will provide more sample problems for this year soon!

Thank you so much, please keep adding more to the list! Also, can you tell me whether the paper of class 10th, 11th and 12th will be the same? If so, will the cutoff lists be different? Can you share some data about past year cutoffs?

Kushal Thaman - 2 months, 3 weeks ago

Log in to reply

@Kushal Thaman No, unfortunately I do not have data about last year's cutoff. However, the organizers have told me that they will try to have an equal representation across ages in the camp.

This year's wiki has a clearer break down of these facts.

Agnishom Chattopadhyay Staff - 2 months, 3 weeks ago

@Agnishom Chattopadhyay Thanks. Will the level of difficulty of 11th-12th category and 10th-and-below category be same? By "equal representation across ages", do you mean that 50 students will be selected from each category, or a total of 50 students will be invited to the camp from all categories? The wiki says: A total of candidates with exceptional performance among all the examinees will be chosen for the camp at Chennai Mathematical Institute in February. Can you please elaborate?

Kushal Thaman - 2 months, 3 weeks ago

Log in to reply

@Kushal Thaman The question papers for all the sections listed in the S.T.E.M.S. wiki will be different since there are differences in the syllabi of all these categories. Since the papers will be based on different topics, you cannot really compare the difficulty level. If you wish to get an overview of the exam, we suggest you try the practice problems from S.T.E.M.S. 2018.

As the wiki states, a total of 50 students will be selected for the camp. This is inclusive of all categories, so we do not mean 50 students per category. We will upload a list of students selected for the camp from each category when the results will be declared.

@Aditya Raut @Agnishom Chattopadhyay Will the selection of 50 students be kept uniform? Otherwise all those from the senior categories would have more probability of selection. Also, in the syllabi section, there were only two parts, School, and College. Does that mean that the syllabus of both the categories (10th and below, and 11th-12th) be same? Or will the syllabus of 10th and below be different?

Kushal Thaman - 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Log in to reply

@Kushal Thaman You have perhaps been reading the old wiki for S.T.E.M.S. 2018. Please go to www.brilliant.org/STEMS for this year's information. The syllabus has been divided into 3 sections and they have been stated specifically in exam pattern section. We do not state 'School' or 'College', but specifically the sections this year.

@Aditya Raut Are more problem sets/sample papers for Physics section A coming?

Kushal Thaman - 1 week, 1 day ago

@Kushal Thaman Yeah, I suppose so. Folks at CMI have been busy because of their endsem exams. Sorry about the delay!

@Agnishom Chattopadhyay Okay, thank you for the update. Hope you guys rock your exams too!

Kushal Thaman - 3 days, 21 hours ago

@Aditya Raut I read this wiki only- so the syllabus for 10th, 11th and 12th is the same.

Kushal Thaman - 2 months, 2 weeks ago

What is the syllabus?

Will not the answer to the mcq no.10(school category) be 46. I have done it in the following way. For first digit of "a" or "b" we have 8 choices,for second digit 2 choices,third is 0(only one choice) ,fourth digit has 3 choices. So total possible cases are 48 out of which ''a'' and '''b'' are becoming 0 two times and these must be eliminated(because they are natural numbers). So, required cases are 46. Please let me know where I am making an error.

This is what the Math Team said:

It's 48 of a and b are allowed to be 0

We have given points for 46 too
