SASMO is a Math Olympiad contest that stretches not only the brightest students but is aimed at instilling confidence in all students.
The contest is designed in a way to make every student love Math again. SASMO contest fits nicely into the school curriculum with a high focus on non-routine problem sums.
This book is written for the participants in the Singapore and Asian Schools Math Olympiads (SASMO). It helps students to prepare well for the contest and develop higher-order thinking. All problems are designed to help students develop the ability to think mathematically, rather than to teach more advanced or unusual topics. The fun is in how students can see patterns and encounter various ways of solving each problem in non-technical ways. This book also contains some solved examples to provide different problem-solving techniques and to familiarise the participant with different types of Olympiad questions.
The SASMO-Math Competition series consists of books for learners from Primary 1 to Secondary 4.
