  • Description

    Mathematical Circles were associations of students and teachers of mathematics that were formed to promote interest in studying mathematics among secondary school students.

    Summary Of The Book

    Mathematics is a subject that does not appeal to all students. In Russia, the Mathematical Circles were a sort of cultural movement that aimed to foster interest in mathematics among school students. These circles were groups of mathematicians, teachers and students. The members of the circles met and discussed mathematical problems. The problems discussed in these camps were designed by mathematicians in such a way as to capture the interest of young students. The Mathematical Circle concept was based on the idea that studying mathematics can be a recreational activity, an activity that could generate as much fun and enthusiasm as a team sport.

    Mathematical Circles (Russian Experience) is divided into two parts. The problems in the book are designed for a two year extracurricular course in maths. The first part covers problems for the first year, aimed at younger students, between 10-11 years. The second part contains more complex problems, for older students with a better understanding of mathematical theories and problems. The book uses games and other activities to present mathematical theorems and methods. The same game or activity is sometimes used in various chapters, each time illustrating a different and more advanced concept.

    The first part covering the First Year of Education, begins with Chapter Zero. This chapter just assesses the student's skill in mathematics and logic. From the subsequent chapter, seven chapters cover mathematical topics. The eighth chapter is a chapter of problems that test the students on the concepts taught in the first year. The second part, for The Second Year of Education, covers more advanced concepts in nine chapters. This section also ends with a chapter of problems based on the mathematical concepts covered in the previous chapters.

    There are three appendix sections. The first section describes the types of mathematical contests that were popular in the former Soviet Union. The second appendix contains solutions or hints and answers to most of the problems in the book. The third appendix provides a list of references used in the book.

    Mathematical Circles (Russian Experience) is an interesting resource for teachers, math enthusiasts and students.

    Mind - Blowing

    When I first bought this book, I was dumbstruck at the advanced maths of the Soviet Union. Written around 1989, This book is just fabulous. It has wide ranging topics from Combinatorics to Induction. It lets you yourself prove things.
    A very interactive book, I have benefitted greatly.
    This book is also featured in the reference of IMO.
    I strongly recommend this book for those who are appearing in RMO.

    Super!

    I bought it in 10th but never read it properly at that time. But when I started doing it seriously in 11th, I was amazed at its approach. Its teaching style is completely different from routine Indian mathematics books.

    It first gives the reader some basic ideas and concepts and then teaches further important concepts through problems. It game me a sense of accomplishment as I progressed further. This problem solving approach is what lacks in routine books. Definitely an eye opener.

    One of the best

    All the problems are fascinating and great to learn. some times it made me to think harder and it turned out to be a simple outwardly logic which we fail to think off. It is a book that is very interesting.

    good for interview preparation, increasing logical thinking.
