Coaching Techniques For Mathematical Olympiad

Mr Mohd Suhaimi Ramly
Head Coach of Malaysian International Mathematical Olympiad Team

Workshop Synopsis

Mathematical Olympiad is well-known as a mathematical competition for highly gifted students in mathematics. In this workshop, I will argue otherwise, that introducing Mathematical Olympiad in the classroom develops general problem-solving abilities for all students, which leads to higher academic attainment. I will share my personal experience leading the Malaysian team to the International Mathematical Olympiad since 2007, and how such coaching program can be started at any level -- classroom, school, district, or state -- even with a small number of students, and no Math Olympiad background whatsoever. Practical coaching techniques will be discussed. We will attempt some (fun!) Olympiad problems in a laidback setting.
