Sony opens Free Registrations for the 4th Edition of Global Math Challenge (GMC), an online contest for Math lovers across age groups from 17th - 19th November, 2016. Participants can not only discover the fun in math, but also challenge their computational thinking skills - the ability to deal with problems of the 21st century, in a logical and creative way.

More than 170,000 challengers from over 85 countries took part in the past 3 editions. GMC has previously been held three times worldwide, available online simultaneously in English, Japanese and Chinese.
