There are many countries around the world that hold Mathematics Competitions. The Competitions are extremely interesting since many professors try to create new interesting problems. If you want to take part in these competitions, you have to solve many problems. That means you must master your problem-solving skills. Challenging Problems from Around the World Vol 1 is a selected problem book. This book has only two chapters. The first chapter of this book is a collection of problems. We select many good problems from different sources. Most of them used to appear in Mathematics Competitions. In this part, we want the readers try their best to solve the problems. Remember that only a few people can solve all problems in this book. So, do not be up set if you cannot solve some problems. Even we cannot solve problems, we still gain some techniques in solving problems. The readers should keep in mind that the only way in learning Mathematics is to do Mathematics. The second chapter of this book was written about the solution to each problem that listed in the first chapter. We try to solve the problems step by step. We believe that the solutions will help the readers to understand well. Reading through this part, we hope the readers will learn many problem-solving strategies. Let this book be your close friend when you learn about Mathematics. We hope the readers have a great journey in reading this book. Richard S.Hammond
A beautiful part in Maths is inequality. There are a lot of techniques and theorems related to inequality. This is the main reason that inequality problems appear in most Mathematics Competitions. Therefore, if you want to be a part of the competitions, mastering in inequality is one thing that you must do. Challenging Problems in Inequalities is a little book about inequalities. This book will provide you with the basics, techniques and theorems in inequalities. We will guide you through many interesting things in inequalities. This book was written in three main parts. The first part is about techniques and theorems in proving inequalities. The second part is about problems. And the last part of the book is about solutions. In the first part of the book, we try to dive readers into the basic inequalities. We lead readers to understand many well-known theorems such as QM-AM-GM-HM inequality, Cauchy-Schwarz inequality, rearrangement inequality, Jensen's inequality, Schur's inequality and etc. Moreover, in each chapter, we give many examples in order to make to make sure that readers understand well about the theorem. Readers should keep in mind that learning maths is not about memorizing but it is all about understanding. The more you understand about the lesson, the more you perform really well in solving problems. In the second part of the book, we listed many challenging problems from around the world. The aim of this part is to help readers to practice their understanding in the first part. Readers should try their best to solve the given problems before seeing the solutions. It is good to figure the answers out by yourself. However, do not worry if you cannot solve them since the last part of the book is about solutions. In this part, we provide readers very detailed solutions to each problems. All problems were solved step by step. This part will help readers to evolve a lot. We hope this book will help readers a lot in inequalities.

See also A SECOND STEP TO MATHEMATICAL OLYMPIAD PROBLEMS The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is an annual international mathematics competition held for pre-collegiate students. It is also the oldest of the international science olympiads, and competition for places is particularly fierce. This book is an amalgamation of the first 8 of 15 booklets originally produced to guide students intending to contend for placement on their country's IMO team. The material contained in this book provides an introduction to the main mathematical topics covered in the IMO, which are: Combinatorics, Geometry and Number Theory. In addition, there is a special emphasis on how to approach unseen questions in Mathematics, and model the writing of proofs. Full answers are given to all questions. Though A First Step to Mathematical Olympiad Problems is written from the perspective of a mathematician, it is written in a way that makes it easily comprehensible to adolescents. This book is also a must-read for coaches and instructors of mathematical competitions.
The book contains problems from the first 32 British Mathematical Olympiad (BMO) papers 1965-96 and gives hints and outline solutions to each problem from 1975 onwards. An overview is given of the basic mathematical skills needed, and a list of books for further reading is provided. Working through the exercises provides a valuable source of extension and enrichment for all pupils and adults interested in mathematics.
Introduction to Math Olympiad Problems aims to introduce high school students to all the necessary topics that frequently emerge in international Math Olympiad competitions. In addition to introducing the topics, the book will also provide several repetitive-type guided problems to help develop vital techniques in solving problems correctly and efficiently. The techniques employed in the book will help prepare students for the topics they will typically face in an Olympiad-style event, but also for future college mathematics courses in Discrete Mathematics, Graph Theory, Differential Equations, Number Theory and Abstract Algebra. Features Numerous problems designed to embed good practice in readers, and build underlying reasoning, analysis, and problem-solving skills. Suitable for advanced high school students preparing for Math Olympiad competitions.
In China, lots of excellent maths students takes an active part in various maths contests and the best six senior high school students will be selected to form the IMO National Team to compete in the International Mathematical Olympiad. In the past ten years, China's IMO Team has achieved outstanding results — they have won the first place almost every year.The author is one of the senior coaches of China's IMO National Team, he is the headmaster of Shanghai senior high school which is one of the best high schools of China. In the past decade, the students of this school have won the IMO gold medals almost every year.The author attempts to use some common characteristics of sequence and mathematical induction to fundamentally connect Math Olympiad problems to particular branches of mathematics. In doing so, the author hopes to reveal the beauty and joy involved with math exploration and at the same time, attempts to arouse readers' interest of learning math and invigorate their courage to challenge themselves with difficult problems.
Forty-eight challenging problems from the oldest high school mathematics competition in the world. This book is a continuation of Hungarian Problem Book III and takes the contest from 1944 through to 1963. This book is intended for beginners, although the experienced student will find much here.
The Moscow Mathematical Olympiad has been challenging high school students with stimulating, original problems of different degrees of difficulty for over 75 years. The problems are nonstandard; solving them takes wit, thinking outside the box, and, sometimes, hours of contemplation. Some are within the reach of most mathematically competent high school students, while others are difficult even for a mathematics professor. Many mathematically inclined students have found that tackling these problems, or even just reading their solutions, is a great way to develop mathematical insight. In 2006 the Moscow Center for Continuous Mathematical Education began publishing a collection of problems from the Moscow Mathematical Olympiads, providing for each an answer (and sometimes a hint) as well as one or more detailed solutions. This volume represents the years 1993-1999. The problems and the accompanying material are well suited for math circles. They are also appropriate for problem-solving classes and practice for regional and national mathematics competitions. In the interest of fostering a greater awareness and appreciation of mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and everyday life, MSRI and the AMS are publishing books in the Mathematical Circles Library series as a service to young people, their parents and teachers, and the mathematics profession. Titles in this series are co-published with the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI).
The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is a very important competition for high school students. China has taken part in the IMO 31 times since 1985 and has won the top ranking for countries 19 times, with a multitude of gold medals for individual students. The six students China has sent every year were selected from 60 students among approximately 300 students who took part in the annual China Mathematical Competition during the winter months.This book includes the problems and solutions of the most important mathematical competitions from 2010 to 2014 in China, such as China Mathematical Competition, China Mathematical Olympiad, China Girls' Mathematical Olympiad. These problems are almost exclusively created by the experts who are engaged in mathematical competition teaching and researching. Some of the solutions are from national training team and national team members, their wonderful solutions being the feature of this book. This book is useful to mathematics fans, middle school students engaged in mathematical competition, coaches in mathematics teaching and teachers setting up math elective courses.
The Mathematical Olympiad examinations, covering the USA Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO) and the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO), have been published annually since 1976. This is the fourth volume in that series. The IMO is a world mathematics competition for high school students that takes place each year in a different country. Students from all over the world participate in this competition. These Olympiad style exams consist of several challenging essay-type problems. Although a correct and complete solution to an Olympiad problem often requires deep analysis and careful argument, the problems require no more than a solid background in high school mathematics coupled with a dose of mathematical ingenuity. There are helpful hints provided for each of the problems. These hints often help lead the student to a solution of the problem. Complete solutions to each of the problems is also included, and many of the problems are presented together with a collection of remarkable solutions developed by the examination committees, contestants and experts, during or after the contest. For each problem with multiple solutions, some common crucial results are presented at the beginning of these solutions.
Mathematical Olympiad Challenges is a rich collection of problems put together by two experienced and well-known professors and coaches of the U.S. International Mathematical Olympiad Team. Hundreds of beautiful, challenging, and instructive problems from algebra, geometry, trigonometry, combinatorics, and number theory were selected from numerous mathematical competitions and journals. An important feature of the work is the comprehensive background material provided with each grouping of problems. The problems are clustered by topic into self-contained sections with solutions provided separately. All sections start with an essay discussing basic facts and one or two representative examples. A list of carefully chosen problems follows and the reader is invited to take them on. Additionally, historical insights and asides are presented to stimulate further inquiry. The emphasis throughout is on encouraging readers to move away from routine exercises and memorized algorithms toward creative solutions to open-ended problems. Aimed at motivated high school and beginning college students and instructors, this work can be used as a text for advanced problem- solving courses, for self-study, or as a resource for teachers and students training for mathematical competitions and for teacher professional development, seminars, and workshops.
