“Mathematical Olympiad has been widely practised in some countries due to the following characteristics:
- the wide range of topics that link mathematics to everyday events,
- the witty and tricky nature of the problems that bring out the best in the students’ thinking skills and creative imagination,
- encourages students to use more than one method to solve the problems, thus stimulating them to think outside the box,
- the students will be equipped with abundant resources to devise their own methods in problem-solving due to the extensive training and exposure.”
