The AMTI is a pioneer organisation in promoting and conducting Maths Talent Tests in India. Last year (43rd TC Data) (in the 43rd National level tests) 54058 students from 332 institutions spread all over India, participated at the screening level; 10% of them insitutionwise were selected for the final test. For the benefit of final level contestants and the chosen few for INMO, special orientation camps were conducted. Merit certificates and prizes were awarded to the deserving students.
35 among them at the Junior and Inter Levels have been sponsored to write the Indian National Mathematics Olympiad (INMO 2012). From among them 3 have been selected at the national level.
AIM OF THE TESTS
To discover and encourage students who have the capacity for original and creative thinking, readiness to attack unfamiliar and non-routine problems exhibiting a general mathematical ability appropriate to their level.
English, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Tamil & Telugu.
The medium for Senior level is English only.
Rs. 50/- per candidate (out of which Rs.5/- will be retained by the institution for all expenses and Rs.45/- to be sent to AMTI.)
The syllabus for Mathematics Olympiad (Regional, National and International) is pre-degree college mathematics. The areas covered are, mainly –
a)Algebra, b) Geometry, c) Number theory and d) Graph theory(& combinatorics)
Algebra: Polynomials, Solving equations, inequalities and complex numbers.
Geometry: Geometry of triangles and circles.
(Trigonometric methods, vector methods, complex number methods, transformational geometry methods can also be used to solve problems)
Number Theory: Divisibility, Diaphantine equations, congruence relations, prime numbers and elementary results on prime numbers.
Graph Theory (& Combinatorics): Counting techniques, pigeon hole principle, principle of inclusion and exclusion, basic graph theory.
Problems pertaining to these concepts will be of non-routine type with difficulty level increasing from RMO to INMO to IMO.
Further to motivate this type of thinking from Class V onwards questions solvable by the best with clear knowledge of concepts introduced to them applied to problem solving will be set for primary (V & VI), sub-Junior (VII & VIII), Junior (IX & X) and Inter (XI & XII).
A glance at the Questions & Solutions of previous years and the books published by the AMTI will facilitate students at all levels to understand the nature of Olympiad examinations. Please see details given in this file for how to get the books, the mode of payment etc.
MODE OF EXAMINATION
Your institution shall be the centre for your students and the Principal or the Head of Mathematics Department shall be in charge of the proper conduct of the examinations.
Every candidate (except the senior level) will take a Preliminary Test.
FOLLOW UP PROGRAMME
Cash Awards to the top 3 winners in each level, (1st position Rs.5000/-, 2nd Rs.2500/- and 3rd Rs.1250/-) (T.R. Raghava Sastry Award for the topper in XI Std) Merit Certificates for them and others selected with some cash award for the latter also will be given based on their revealing a reasonable level of mathematical maturity. All the students selected for the Final Level Test will get a certificate and a cash award. Enrichment contact courses are likely to be organized for the promising toppers.
Scholarship effective from 2010 onwards.
For those who get selected at INMO through AMTI, an adhoc sum of Rs. 10000/-(Rupees Ten thousand ) each will be given.
For those who get selected for IMO from them a sum of Rs. 20000/- (RupeesTwenty thousand ) each will be given.
