CHARGES
Rs. 50/ per candidate (out of which Rs.5/ will be retained by the institution only for all expenses and Rs.45/ to be sent to AMTI.)
SYLLABUS
The syllabus for Mathematics Olympiad (Regional, National and International) is predegree college mathematics. The areas covered are, mainly –
a)Algebra, b) Geometry, c) Number theory and d) Graph theory & combinatorics.
Algebra: Polynomials, Solving equations, inequalities and complex numbers.
Geometry: Geometry of triangles and circles.
(Trigonometric methods, vector methods, complex number methods, transformation geometry methods can also be used to solve problems)
Number Theory: Divisibility, Diophantine equations, congruence relations, prime numbers and elementary results on prime numbers.
Combinatorics & Graph Theory : Counting techniques, pigeon hole principle, principle of inclusion and exclusion, basic graph theory.
Problems pertaining to these concepts will be of nonroutine type with difficulty level increasing from RMO to INMO to IMO.
Further to motivate this type of thinking from Class V onwards questions solvable by the best with clear knowledge of concepts introduced to them applied to problem solving will be set for primary (V & VI), subJunior (VII & VIII), Junior (IX & X) and Inter (XI & XII).
A glance at the Questions & Solutions of previous years and the books published by the AMTI will facilitate students at all levels to understand the nature of Olympiad examinations. Please see details given in this file for how to get the books, the mode of payment etc.
FOLLOW UP PROGRAMME
Cash Awards to the top 3 winners in each level, (1st position Rs.5000/, 2nd Rs.2500/ and 3rd Rs.1250/) (T.R. Raghava Sastry Award for the topper in XI Std) Merit Certificates for them and others selected with some cash award for the latter also will be given based on their revealing a reasonable level of mathematical maturity. All the students selected for the Final Level Test will get a certificate and a cash award. Enrichment contact courses are likely to be organized for the promising toppers.
Scholarship effective from 2010 onwards.
For those who get selected at INMO through AMTI, an adhoc sum of Rs. 10000/(Rupees Ten thousand ) each will be given.
For those who get selected for IMO from them a sum of Rs. 20000/ (Rupees Twenty thousand ) each will be given.
