The camp aims to discuss challenging mathematical problems at the pre-olympiad and olympiad level and thereby expose the teachers to mathematical problem solving beyond the school curriculum. The International Mathematical Olympiad is a movement for school students. The national Olympiad programmes globally have aimed at not just the international event, but also as national channels to enrich school educational curriculum. Even beyond the scope of the examinations, Olympiad problems provide intellectual stimulus and uncommon opportunities for teaching and learning of Mathematics.
