ab: Publisherâ€™s description: This book is a rare resource consisting of
problems and solutions similar to those seen in mathematics contests
from around the world. It is an excellent training resource for high
school students who plan to participate in mathematics contests, and a
wonderful collection of problems that can be used by teachers who wish
to offer their advanced students some challenging nontraditional
problems to work on to build their problem solving skills. It is also
an excellent source of problems for the mathematical hobbyist who
enjoys solving problems on various levels. Problems are organized by
topic and level of difficulty and are cross-referenced by type, making
finding many problems of a similar genre easy. An appendix with the
mathematical formulas needed to solve the problems has been included
for the readerâ€™s convenience. We expect that this book will expand
the mathematical knowledge and help sharpen the skills of students in
high schools, universities and beyond.
