Our Mission and Vision

The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is the most important and prestigious mathematical competition for high school students. Its problems help to cultivate analytical thinking that will be useful in their school life or in the workplace when they become an employee or employer.

Each Olympiad problem requires a lot of thought and is often completely unpredictable and finding the solution is often not straightforward.  Thus, having been exposed to, or participated in tackling the problems, helps to broaden the mathematical horizons within us. If one learns the skills from the right direction through the right mentor, it makes us more capable and enhances our competitiveness, and what arises is the elevated confidence and strength and finally, we learn to appreciate math and enjoy solving intriguing math problems that can actually sharpen our mind.

The benefits that we may reap from familiarizing and immersing ourselves in the sea of Olympiad mathematics problems are imminent, and when it comes to Olympiad preparation, the questions always comes to what is the most appropriate age to begin learning it, and the answer is pretty simple. It is never too early and it is never too late. Begin the learning journey early, and that gives us room to learn at a slower pace that is relaxing, but it is never too late to pick up the necessary skills. Acting now and never looking back is the key!!! Whether you learn it at a young or a relatively old age, the eventual outcome that we should really concern ourselves with is whether or not we will get a solid and thorough foundation, we can never stray away from that ultimate goal. 
Now, we come to the core question and the most relevant to this blog…what content do we offer? What goals do we have?

We only have one goal in mind, and that is to train young students in problem solving and critical thinking skills. We recognize the importance of imparting to the young the 21st century skills, the young need to demonstrate creativity, innovation and flexibility in solving problems which don’t necessarily have immediate answers by using technology and applying core knowledge. This includes  problem solving and critical thinking skill sets, and they need to inspire others as well so together, they blossom into more effective learners and problem solvers.

In order to identify and nurture young talents requires a good set of problems that have the potential to provide intellectual challenges for enhancing students’ mathematical understanding and development. However, good problems are hard to come by. Also, knowing how to incorporate problem solving meaningfully into the math curriculum is not necessarily obvious to the math teachers. But we have the greatest collection ofOlympiad mathematical problems at hand that we want to share along with the plan of attack to each of them. So, our purpose in setting up this blog is to help produce tomorrow's leaders, true problem solvers.

Last but not least, the other philosophy to which we hold fast is that we believe everyone is capable of learning math. Learning how to become an efficient and effective problem solver is something that we can learn, just like we learn how to type on keyboards, believe in us as we believe in you, Students, you too, can become a great student!
