Inaugurated in 1990, Singapore Mathematical Olympiad for Primary Schools (SMOPS) is an annual event organized by Hwa Chong Institution. In 2002, SMOPS was renamed as Asia Pacific Mathematical Olympiad for Primary Schools (APMOPS) as it includes overseas centres from Asia Pacific countries. In 2017, it introduced Junior SMOPS in Singapore open for Primary 5 students.
