Book Description

This book contains over 100 challenging problems for pupils aged 11-15, taken from the hugely popular UK Junior Mathematical Olympiad. There are also 60 additional problems in a similar style. The second section of the book consists of detailed comments and hints, whilst the third section gives outline solutions. These high quality, more challenging problems will provide an excellent and invaluable resource for all mathematics teachers.

Format: Paperback
These math problems are ones that were given in competitions in the UK to adolescents. There is always an "A" part and a "B" part, but the 2nd part is MUCH harder! A good part of the book is that they give hints for if you get stuck. A good book for someone who actually wants to do math and not just read about it.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By N. F. Taussig on March 22, 2009
Format: Paperback
This text contains the problems from the U. K. Junior Mathematical Olympiad from the years 1989 - 1995 and sixty additional problems that were considered for the tests. The problems, which are meant to be done without a calculator, draw upon number sense, estimation, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and combinatorics. To qualify for these competitions, students first had to excel on the U. K. School Mathematics Challenge. Problems from that competition can be found in Gardiner's Mathematical Challenge, which you should work through before attempting the problems in this text. Unless you can handle most of the problems in Mathematical Challenge with ease, you will find working through this book frustrating.

With the exception of the inaugural year of 1989, in which an experimental test of 13 open-ended problems was given, each test is divided into two sections. Section A consists of 10 problems for which a numerical answer is sought. Section B consists of six open-ended problems in which you are expected to justify your answers with some sort of proof. The problems increase in difficulty within each section. The problems in the second section are much more involved than those in the first. The tests are presented in reverse chronological order, presumably because the 1989 examination was harder than those given in succeeding years. Of the 60 additional problems, forty are of the first type and the remainder are of the second type. Answers are given for all the Section A problems. In addition, Gardiner includes sections containing hints and outline solutions for all the problems that appeared on the actual examinations.
