Here at APSMO we are excited to launch our brand new resource book which,
for the first time, combines past questions and solutions from the
Australian and U.S. Maths Olympiads into one book.
Aimed at the primary and middle school years, the book provides a wealth
of information and material to assist teachers and students with creative
problem solving strategies.
We are thrilled to have a number of leading maths educators endorse this
great new publication:
This book embodies the conviction that problem solving is at the heart of mathematical thinking. The problems in this book give students a wonderful opportunity to explore concepts in a free environment, allowing them to develop their sense of mathematical perception and helping them to appreciate that there are often many different ways to find a solution.
Eddie Woo, Cherrybrook Technology High School
It is such a satisfying feeling to witness the deep sense of pleasure and accomplishment in students as they wrestle with and then succeed in solving the challenges developed by APSMO and MOEMS in this book!
Charles Lovitt, National Maths Educator and Author
One of the things I love about this book is that it's more than just a 'contest practice book'. It usually provides more than one method of solving the same problem so teachers can be better prepared to facilitate rich classroom discussion. Discussing methods of solution helps students make valuable mathematical connections.
Dr Heather McMaster, University of Sydney
It's always exciting finding a mathematics book that can be used in many ways. Of course, the questions in this book can be used to extend students' problem solving knowledge but they can also be used when teaching particular topics. As with all mathematics teaching, students benefit from seeing problems in context and the index in this book allows teachers to quickly find them.
Associate Professor Anne Prescott, University of Technology Sydney
