The syllabus for Mathematics Olympiad (Regional, National and International) is pre-degree college mathematics.
The areas covered are, mainly
  • Algebra
  • Geometry
  • Number theory
  • 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 non-routine 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), sub-Junior (VII & VIII), Junior (IX & X) and Inter (XI & XII).
