- Communication - because we need to be able to convince others that our beliefs are sound
- Creativity - because we enjoy being humans instead of robots
- Transcripts of relative attainment
- Individual medals within each skill category
- Golden ticket invites to the next finals of the World Mathematics Championships®

Individuals focus on the Challenge rounds alone.
Inter-nation teams engage within the Collaboration rounds together.
Intra-nation teams complete the Communication rounds together.
Some rounds are (subject specific skills and procedures) knowledge intensive.
Other rounds are (plan and execute) strategy focused.
There are rounds that depend upon (new and imaginative ideas) creativity.
Each strategy, creative and knowledge skill category has at least one round that is engaged in alone, within inter-nation teams and through intra-nation teams.
