TOURNAMENT OF TOWNS RECOMMENDED RULES TO LOCAL ORGANIZING COMMITTEES

The local organizing committee decides who is to be invited to the Tournament, who gets the 'beginners' (0-level) version and who gets the main competition (A-level) version of the problems. If the students are all at a fairly high level, the 0-level version may be excluded altogether; if they are all beginners in math competitions, the 0-level version can be used exclusively. The result is graded according to our point system: the maximum grade for each of the problems is indicated in the text of the problem, each paper (contestant) is graded by taking the sum of the three best grades obtained in solving the individual problems. In one round, where contestants can participate in two stages of the competition, the grade is taken to be the maximum of the two grades obtained in these stages.

All the towns must hold the sitting in one day. Delay of the round is permitted only under the condition that local managers of the Tournament are sure the students aren't able to receive problems prior the competitions. Local committees are responsible for keeping confidential the contest questions until the day of the sitting.

Students of 8-9th forms in Russia are 13-14 years old, those of the 10-11th forms are 15-16 (the usual age at graduation from secondary school is 17). Different sets of problems are proposed for these two age groups. The members of the organizing committee of each country must decide for themselves which students correspond to the two Russian age groups. It is logical to take the students from the last two or three years to correspond to our forms 10-11 and the students from the previous two years to correspond to our forms 8-9. The problems of the two groups are based on the Russian syllabus for forms 8 and 10, respectively. The sum of points obtained by 7th form students participating in the competition for the 8-9th form age groups should be multiplied by the coefficient 3/2, that of 8th form students should be multiplied by 4/3, that of 10th form students taking part in the competition for 10-11th forms - by 5/4.

Students doing the 0-level version are given no more than 4 hours, those doing the main competition version - 5 hours. This 5-hour period may be divided into two 2.5 or 2-3-hour periods, 3 or 4 problems being proposed in each (please indicate in the re- port how this was organized).

The local jury corrects (checks) all the papers in its city and sends the best papers to Moscow; the number of papers to be sent to Moscow should be equal to or somewhat larger than the city's number of "officially competing" papers. This number equals the integer part of 1/100000 part of the population of the city or 5, whichever is larger. The following data about each student is requested: name and surname, number or name of the school, form, grade for each problem in points or in traditional plus-minus notation (+ ,+- ,-+ , - ). To papers not written in Russian or in one of the international scientific languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Esperanto) the organizing committee is asked to add a translation into one of these languages. The translation must be made by the local managers of the sitting.

The Moscow central organizing committee will send you the author's solutions in the near future. The best papers will be mailed to other cities if requested by their respective organizing committees.

Lists of students whom the central organizing committee views as the winners of the Tournament for the given school year will be mailed to all participating cities after the Spring round. Winners receive diplomas from the central organizing committee (this does not contradict or determine the prizes that the local organizing committee awards).

There are two rounds (the Autumn and Spring rounds); each city may participate in either or in both. In a similar way, there may be two versions (0- and A-level competition) within one round, and students may participate in either or in both. Final grades are always the maximum of the grades obtained in each version or round. The final grade for a city equals the average score of the best grades of the officially competing papers from that city; for smaller cities (population < 500000) this grade is multiplied by the coefficient K, calculated according to the formula K=1+(500-N)/800, where N is the city's population in thousands.

All participants must observe the olympic principles of honor.

The central organizing committee asks you to inform us about the city's population. We ask also to enclose the printed list of participants with market surnames, other names, sex, grade, school.

At the bottom of the diploma there will be four signatures: two made by the central commitee and the central jury, and the other two by the local one's. So we'd like to know the names and surnames of the persons, who will signate the diploma for the local commitee and the local jury.

The central organizing committee asks you to send the papers and results within two weeks from the day the competition was held. Please communicate the number of participants in the both versions and indicate which students should be commended for well-written papers (clarity, elegance, etc.). All materials should be sent to the following address:
