**Book Description**

While the books in this series are primarily designed for AMC competitors, they contain the most essential and indispensable concepts used throughout middle and high school mathematics. Some featured topics include key concepts such as equations, polynomials, exponential and logarithmic functions in Algebra, various synthetic and analytic methods used in Geometry, and important facts in Number Theory. The topics are grouped in lessons focusing on fundamental concepts. Each lesson starts with a few solved examples followed by a problem set meant to illustrate the content presented. At the end, the solutions to the problems are discussed with many containing multiple methods of approach. I recommend these books to not only contest participants, but also to young, aspiring mathletes in middle school who wish to consolidate their mathematical knowledge. I have personally used a few of the books in this collection to prepare some of my students for the AMC contests or to form a foundation for others. By Dr. Titu Andreescu US IMO Team Leader (1995 - 2002) Director, MAA American Mathematics Competitions (1998 - 2003) Director, Mathematical Olympiad Summer Program (1995 - 2002) Coach of the US IMO Team (1993 - 2006) Member of the IMO Advisory Board (2002 - 2006) Chair of the USAMO Committee (1996 - 2004) I love this book! I love the style, the selection of topics and the choice of problems to illustrate the ideas discussed. The topics are typical contest problem topics: divisors, absolute value, radical expressions, Veita's Theorem, squares, divisibility, lots of geometry, and some trigonometry. And the problems are delicious. Although the book is intended for high school students aiming to do well in national and state math contests like the American Mathematics Competitions, the problems are accessible to very strong middle school students. The book is well-suited for the teacher-coach interested in sets of problems on a given topic. Each section begins with several substantial solved examples followed by a varied list of problems ranging from easily accessible to very challenging. Solutions are provided for all the problems. In many cases, several solutions are provided. By Professor Harold Reiter Chair of MATHCOUNTS Question Writing Committee. Chair of SAT II Mathematics committee of the Educational Testing Service Chair of the AMC 12 Committee (and AMC 10) 1993 to 2000.

**Book Description**

Your book is "fabulous". I spent two hours last night working problems from it. I'm planning to use some in what I do with teachers, with citation of course. I love it. I love the clever problems you came up with and the clever solutions of the MATHCOUNTS problems you used. Dr. Harold Reiter, former Chairman of Mathcounts Question Written Committee, Math Professor, UNC at Charlotte Being responsible for the publications we put out at MATHCOUNTS, I understand the incredible amount of work this required. Congratulations on such a great accomplishment. ---Kristen Chandler Mathcounts, Deputy Director & Program Director I just finished going through with it. As for the book, I'm pretty impressed. It really seems you put a lot of time and effort into it, and I liked it. - Calvin Deng 2010 USA IMO Team Member, Silver Medalist I bought this book together with "Twenty More Problem Solving Skills" for my 6th grade daughter, who loves math, and is preparing for AMC and MathCounts competition. She is very excited with these two books, and learns a lot from these two books in her math competitionpreparation. We recommend this book as a must have math competition collection. - -A parent

**Book Description**

In July 2009 Germany hosted the 50th International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). For the very first time the number of participating countries exceeded 100, with 104 countries from all continents. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the IMO provides an ideal opportunity to look back over the past five decades and to review its development to become a worldwide event. This book is a report about the 50th IMO as well as the IMO history. A lot of data about all the 50 IMOs are included. We list the most successful contestants, the results of the 50 Olympiads and the 112 countries that have ever taken part. It is impressive to see that many of the world’s leading research mathematicians were among the most successful IMO participants in their youth. Six of them gave presentations at a special celebration: Bollobás, Gowers, Lovász, Smirnov, Tao and Yoccoz. This book is aimed at students in the IMO age group and all those who have interest in this worldwide leading competition for highschool students.

**Book Description**

"102 Combinatorial Problems" consists of carefully selected problems that have been used in the training and testing of the USA International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) team. Key features: * Provides in-depth enrichment in the important areas of combinatorics by reorganizing and enhancing problem-solving tactics and strategies * Topics include: combinatorial arguments and identities, generating functions, graph theory, recursive relations, sums and products, probability, number theory, polynomials, theory of equations, complex numbers in geometry, algorithmic proofs, combinatorial and advanced geometry, functional equations and classical inequalities The book is systematically organized, gradually building combinatorial skills and techniques and broadening the student's view of mathematics. Aside from its practical use in training teachers and students engaged in mathematical competitions, it is a source of enrichment that is bound to stimulate interest in a variety of mathematical areas that are tangential to combinatorics.
