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, Relations between Roots and Coefficients, 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 and Theorems thereof, 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.

To motivate students in non-routine problem solving from primary level onwards, contests at four levels- Primary (V & VI), Sub-Junior (VII & VIII), Junior (IX & X) and Inter (XI & XII) - are conducted by AMTI.

The standard of the questions are class appropriate, except that they require original thinking. Questions in Primary and Sub-Junior require the students to have a clear understanding of the concepts learnt in their classes. Junior and Inter are more difficult, as the students of these classes are ready to face PRMO and RMO and are expected to have a fundamental knowledge in all the topics listed above.

A glance at the Questions and Solutions of previous years, from the books published by the AMTI will facilitate students to understand the nature of these contests, at all levels. For details about the books visit our website
