International Mathematical Talent Search Part 1
George Berzsenyi sought to emulate KoMaL (the long-established Hungarian journal) in fostering a problem-solving program in talent development, first with the USA Mathematical Talent Search and then the International Mathematical Talent Search (IMTS).
He seeks to encourage problem solving as an intellectual habit and this book contains many interesting and some unusual problems, many with detailed backgrounds and insights. Part 1 contains the problems and solutions of the first five years (1991-1996) of the IMTS, plus an appendix of earlier problems and solutions of the USAMTS. Part 2 covers the years 1996 to 2001 and its Appendix offers some more problems from the USAMTS without solutions. There is, however, a link to a website that contains these solutions.
These books are aimed at advanced, senior students at Year 10 level and above.
