"Written by a team of established mathematicians and professors, this work draws on the authors' experience in the classroom and as Olympiad coaches." — From the back cover
When will I ever use this? What do mathematicians do? These may be popular questions asked by any student who'd like to understand the practical and concrete applications of mathematics. If you're preparing a team for the Math Olympiads, this book may help you establish a foundation in the world of numbers and their uses.
"Designed for advanced high school students, undergraduates, graduate students, mathematics teachers and any lover of mathematical challenges, this two-volume set offers a broad spectrum of challenging problems—ranging from relatively simple to extremely difficult." — From the back cover
"This uncommonly interesting volume covers 100 of the most famous historical problems of elementary mathematics." — From the back cover
"Designed for high-school students and teachers with an interest in mathematical problem-solving, this stimulating collection includes more than 300 problems that are 'off the beaten path'—i.e., problems that give a new twist to familiar topics or that introduce unfamiliar topics. With few exceptions, their solution requires little more than some knowledge of elementary algebra, though a dash of ingenuity may help." — From the back cover
"Designed for high school students and teachers with an interest in mathematical problem-solving, this volume offers a wealth of nonroutine problems in geometry that stimulate students to explore unfamiliar or little-known aspects of mathematics." — From the back cover
