Moscow (VNA) – Students of Vietnam and Indonesia will compete for the first time at the annual International Online Competition in Mathematics (BRICSMATH) for those from BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), slated for November 16-22.

The fourth edition of the contest will bring together 3 million students from grade 1-12 of the seven nations. It will be held online and free of charge.
