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).

    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 in our website amtionline.com

  • This being a talent contest at all India level for final, marks alone do not speak. We may decide merit holders by interviews also, if found necessary.
  • Centres for final level will be intimated to participating schools well on time or through website.

Special note:

  • This year question papers will be sent to school.
  • CONTESTS
    • The AMTI is a pioneer organization in promoting and conducting Mathematics Talent Tests in India. Last year (in the 48th National level tests) 1,41,394 students from 793 institutions spread all over India participated at the screening level. About 10% of them were selected for the finals Merit certificates and prizes were awarded to the deserving students selected at the final.
    • 30 + 5 girls among them from Tamil Nadu and Puduchery from classes 9 to 11 levels were sponsored to write the INMO 2016.

WE NOW ANNOUNCE THE 49TH INTER - STATE COMPETITIONS
