Maths Olympiad for Sec 2?

Dear Parents, my DD is in Sec 2 and selected to attend Mathematics Olympiad Training. Can anyone please share whether it is necessary to attend Maths Olympiad and how it can help her in her Maths Subject?

Just let her attend the training and see if it's her cup of tea. Math Olympiad is quite different from normal curriculum math, and not everyone likes it or has the aptitude for it.

Your DD is in which sch? Some schools do offer very good training but done are extra. You can learn other things learnt a year later. BTW, is she taking part in SMO? I will be taking without training.

Maths olympiad teaches competition maths which is very different from the school's maths curriculum. Since your DD is selected, she should have the potential to do well in it. This training prepares students for the Singapore Mathematical Olympiad (SMO) competition usually around June. I have taken this training and competition and I find it useful when solving more difficult maths question.
