# A Second Step to Mathematical Olympiad Problems

S\$29.95

The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is an annual international mathematics competition held for pre-collegiate students.

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.

Key Features:

• An introduction to the main mathematical topics covered in the IMO
• Easily comprehensible to students
• Full solutions provided to all mathematical problems
