Indian Talent Olympiad offers **International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO)** for students of class 1 to 10. There are several benefits associated with this exam. Regular practice of mathematics develops instant love for the subject, improves accuracy and makes students confident. Olympiad exams focus on making mathematical concepts clear. This enables students to answer tricky questions easily. Students can participate through their respective schools or even on an individual basis. Indian Talent Olympiad is probably the first Olympiad organization that has initiated online Olympiad exams in six subjects.

The Covid 19 pandemic has put a pause on
the entire world. With working from home becoming the new normal, education
system has seen a 360-degree change. Students remain the most affected in this
pandemic. With schools being shut for months together, the teaching system had
to look for new initiatives. Indian Talent Olympiad’s online **Maths Olympiad**, not only keeps students
occupied, but gives them a chance to explore questions. It encourages
analytical thinking in all participants. The syllabus for this exam is as per
school guidelines. Olympiads leverage student potential, by allowing them to
focus on variety of questions. The content and curriculum ensures enough
practice of all topics in the book.

**Maths
Olympiad Syllabus for class 1 to 10 **

The syllabus is divided into three segments namely – Subjective, Higher Order Thinking (HOT) section and logical reasoning respectively. This remains the same for all classes.

Let us look at the syllabus of International Maths Olympiad (IMO) from class 1 to class 10

**Class
1** – Students of class 1 are introduced to topics
such as shapes and space, number system, addition, subtraction, money, time,
measurement, logical reasoning, patters, grouping of figures, ranking test,
measuring units, geometric shapes, odd one out, analogy, spatial understanding,
and symmetry. They are taught to solve word problems in a very interesting
manner.

**Class
2** – Students of class 2 are familiarized with next
level questions of the same topics taught in class 1. However, the type of
questions become a little intense as per their understanding and age. The new
topics introduced in this class are coding, decoding and solving embedded
figures.

**Class
3** – As students move to class 3, they are expected
to be thorough in previous topics. This is possible only through rigorous
practice. Here, students are introduced to multiplication, division, money,
measurement, time, calendar, fraction, alphabet test, number series, analogy
and classification, ranking test, logical sequence of words and letters, coding
decoding, blood relations, direction sense test, mirror image, geometrical
shapes, grouping, embedded figures, dates and days.

**Class
4** – The **Maths
Olympiad syllabus** for class 4 is almost the same as that of class 3. The
new topics introduced here are paper folding and cutting. Having said so,
although the topics are the same, the questions are of a higher level. Word
problems are a bit trickier. With regular practice, students are able to solve
all questions easily. Complexity of questions increases with every class.

**Class
5** – The concept of geometry is introduced in class
5. Students are also taught number system, factors & multiples, data
handing, mirror and water images, analogy, direction sense, ranking, puzzle,
Venn Diagram, series, figure matrix, mathematical operations, alphabet test,
cubes and dice. All questions are explained in detail in Olympiad workbooks by
Indian Talent Olympiad.

**Class
6** – Students of class 6 are familiarized with
topics such as integers, decimal fractions, ratio & proportion, arithmetic,
basic algebra, data handling, mensuration, symmetry, series completion,
alphabet number, logical Venn Diagrams, analytical reasoning, figure matrix,
ranking, cubes and dice. They are expected to have thorough understanding of
topics taught in class 5.

**Class
7** – As students enter class 7, new topics
introduced to them are linear equation in one variable, algebraic expression,
comparing quantities, exponents & power, ratio & proportion, practical
geometry, lines & angles, triangle & its properties, and figure
formation. These concepts form the base for the upcoming classes.

**Class
8** – Students of class 8 are acquainted with topics
such as rational number, exponents & powers, square & square roots,
cube & cube roots, math magic, factorization, comparing quantities, direct
& indirect proportion, operation on algebraic expression, understating
quadrilateral & practical geometry, and ranking.

**Class
9** – Topics taught in class 9 form the base for
class 10. It is believed that if students have complete clarity on concepts
taught in the 9^{th} grade, it becomes easy for them to solve questions
in class 10. Mathematical areas introduced in this class include linear
equation in two variables, number system, algebraic expressions, probability
& permutation, combination, lines & angles, triangles, circle,
quadrilateral, area, trigonometry, and puzzle test.

**Class
10** – This is considered to be the turning point in
the life of all students. Therefore, one must be through in topics taught in
class 9. The syllabus for class 10 is similar to that of class 9, the only
difference is the type of questions asked. The level of difficulty is slightly
more as compared to the previous standard. Students are advised to practice
maximum questions to score well in board exams as well as **Maths Olympiad** exam.

This gives them a brief about **International** **Maths Olympiad (IMO)**** syllabus**, paper pattern, type of questions asked, workbooks, and a lot more. The total time of the exam is 65 minutes for all classes. Number of questions differ from one standard to the other. For example, class 1 to class 4 have 35 questions to answer. Whereas, Class 6 to class 10 are asked 50 questions within the same time limit.

Competitive exams enhance learning. It is
one of the best ways to instill study habits in young minds. These exams help
students to focus on topics that may not be well acquainted with. It surely
ensures additional practice, apart from making basic concepts clear. Students
start believing in themselves that helps them to boost confidence. Olympiad
exams improve academic performance that is clearly visible in their school
results. It teaches them life skills such as time management, which is one of
the most important talents in today’s world. **Maths
Olympiad**
exam is one of the best ways to test students’ strengths and weaknesses in the
subject. It allows scope for improvement that leads to regular practice.
Mathematics is probably one such subject that requires exhaustive knowledge,
clarity on concepts and meticulous understanding of the question. This is
gained only through diligence and hard work. It is one of the scoring subjects
that ensures a cent percent result. At Indian Talent Olympiad, we encourage all
Maths enthusiasts to challenge themselves for **Maths Olympiad**. Let us create young Math geniuses today.
