Friend,

Appearing in Mathematics Olympiad is one of the grates experience..

The aim of this competition is to Providing opportunities to young and talented students to solve challenging problems in Mathematics.

As role of Mathematics cannot be denied in the age of rapid technological advancements and innovations, thus their is always a need to detect an praise the scholar..

Syllabus :-

Olympiad examination doesn't consist of any prescribed syllabus in mathematics..

It just consist of mathematics taught upto Class X level in various state or central board..

But the major areas from which problems are chosen are given as follows :-
• Number Theory,
• Geometry,
• Algebra and Combinatorics
• Arithmetic of Integers,
• Geometry,
• Trigonometry,
• Coordinate Geometry,
• Systems of linear equations,
• Permutations and Combinations,
• Factorization of polynomials,
• Inequalities,
• Elementary Combinatorics,
• Probability Theory and Number Theory,
• Finite series and Complex numbers, and
• Elementary Graph Theory.

Excluded Subjects and topics :-
• Calculus and Statistics is not included in syllabus ...
• problems are not routine text book problems. they are considerably harder
Best book and Tips to prepare for examination is :-
1. Best book => "An Excursion In Mathematics"
2. i would highly advisable you to solves as many new problems as possible with no or with minimum help along with past question papers..

SYLLABUS AND PATTERN OF EXAMINATION

There is no specific syllabus for the examination. Areas of school Mathematics such as algebra, geometry, basic number theory, trigonometry, arithmetic, combinatorics etc. are to be prepared for the test. The question paper consist of 6-7 questions of non-routine nature.

BOOKS TO FOLLOW
• Mathematics Olympiad Primer, by V. Krishnamurthy, C.R. Pranesachar, K.N. Ranganathan and B.J. Venkatachala (Interline Publishing Pvt. Ltd., Bangalore).
• Challenge and Thrill of Pre-College Mathematics, by V. Krishnamurthy, C.R. Pranesachar, K.N. Ranganathan and B.J. Venkatachala (New Age International Publishers, New Delhi)
Mathematical Olympiads are the competitions conducted by different organizations to identify, encourage, promote and nurture the talent in Mathematics at State, Regional, National and International levels.

Any student studying in class XII, XI, X or IX can participate in the competition. The question paper remains the same.

The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) consists of the following stages :
• Stage 1: Regional Mathematics Olympiad (RMO)
• Stage 2: Indian National Mathematics Olympiad (INMO)
• Stage 3: International Mathematics Olympiad Training Camp (IMOTC)
• Stage 4:International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO)  Reply With Quote

## Re: What is the syllabus of GP mathematical olympiad?

Hi............
Mathematical olympaid are competitions conducted by different organizations to identify ,encourage ,promote and nurturing the talent in mathematics at state,regional,,national and international levels.
After having being accarded the status of an independent group by National board of Higher Mathematics (NBHM) in 1997 ,central board of secondary Education,Delhi has been conducting CDSE group mathematical olympaid for students studying in its affiliated schools.
One main purpose of this activity is to support mathematical talent among high school students in the country.
The top 30 students from CDSE group will then participate in Indian National Mathematics Olympaid,conducted by NBHM.
Selection at National level leads to International Mathematical olympaid.
Students of class Xll,Xl,X,Xl can participate in competition.
Syllabus and Pattern of examination:
there is no specific syllabus for the examination.
But you can cover the areas of mathematics such as
Algebra
Geometry
Number theory
Trigonometry
Airthmatics
combinatoirics
Maturation
Mental Aptitude Test.
The NBHM offers about YM scholarships of the value of Rs10,000 per annum to Indian National Mathematical Olympaid awardees for higher studies.

Friend,

The Mathematics Olympiad activity was undertaken by NBHM and It is currently run in collaboration with the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education, Mumbai.
One main aim of this activity is to support mathematical talent among high school students in the country.
NBHM has taken on the responsibility for selecting and training the Indian team for participation in the International Mathematical Olympiad every year.

Qualification Criteria:-

Students Studying in 9th/10th/11th/12th Class are Eligible for This Exam.
Only 5 Students can Apply from One School. School Conduct Screening Test for Selection of Toppers in Mathematics.

I add Pdf File for Details and Syllabus of Mathematics Olympiad Examination.  Reply With Quote
