By participating in the Mathematical Olympiad (MO) or World Class Tests, students gain opportunities to nurture their logical thinking capacities through competing with and learning from counterparts all over the world. However, the MO has over the years become notorious for an overwhelming curriculum, demanding significantly accelerated learning and robotic training. That is an over generalisation for competitive mathematics, which requires students to possess a… Read More

This is an unavoidable result from over-emphasis on computations in traditional schooling, which rarely cultivates students’ motivation in learning mathematics and their problem solving skills. Mathematics does not have to be boring or robotic; instead, studying mathematics with a suitable approach enables… Read More
