The International Mathematical Olympiad has just finished about a couple months ago and that means those who want to compete on the next event of International Mathematical Olympiad still has about 10 more months for the preparation. If you are one of those students who are going to compete on the next International Mathematical Olympiad that will be held in United Kingdom in 2019, you need to make sure that you prepare yourself good enough because you will be competing against hundreds of other students who have the good knowledge in math. If you want to make sure that you have prepared the best for the annual event of International Mathematical Olympiad, you need to make sure that you have tried these tips below.
For the start, you need to make sure that you have enough math problems to solve every single day. This one is important because if you do not have enough problems to solve, you can be sure that you will have to deal with the same problem again and again. Even though you can use this kind of method, this is not something recommended because at some points you will end up remembering the answer, not the calculation to find the answer. That is why you need to focus on the process, not the result.
The next tip that you need to highlight is making sure that you remember many different formulas for many different problems. There is one mistake that many of those students made. They usually forgot how to us the formula properly because there are some formulas that are using the similar sign. That is one thing that you need to highlight properly and you need to make sure that you can use all of those formulas based on their specific needs.
The last but not least, you need to make sure that you have downloaded all of the problem sets that they used on the previous International Mathematical Olympiad. This one is important because from all of those problem sets you are able to see the kind of pattern that occurs every single year. This way, you will be able to learn more on the materials that occur most of the time so that you will not waste your time on solving a lot of problems and materials that might have the smallest chance to occur. You need to keep your focus so that you are ready to face the next International Mathematical Olympiad in 2019.
