The contest for secondary school pupils known as the Mathematical Olympiad has been held in Poland every year since 1949/50. This book is composed of two main parts. Part I considers the problems and solutions about integers, polynomials, algebraic fractions and irrational experience. Part II focuses on the problems of geometry and trigonometric transformation, along with their solutions. The provided solutions aim to extend the student’s knowledge of mathematics and train them in mathematical thinking. This book will prove useful to secondary school mathematics teachers and students.
