A Mathematical Olympiad is a problem solving competition open to all "mathletes".
The aim of the competition is to test innate problem solving skills. The problems
are restricted to those that require minimal background and high ingenuity. Since
one of the goals of such olympiads is to identify talent at a young age, these olympiads
are usually restricted to students not yet admitted to any undergraduate programme.
Olympiad questions test mathematical skills in a range of contexts from the following
- Number and Arithmetic
- Algebra and Patterns
- Measures and Units
- Space and Geometry
- Chance and Data
