Singapore Mathematical Olympiads Solution Books

SMO solution book Ten Year and Five Year Series
For Secondary and Junior College level students

Ten Year Series (1995-2004)

This publication is SMS' effort to produce the solutions to all the competitions in the ten years from 1995 to 2004. Besides meeting students' needs for the questions and solutions to earlier publications which have already been out of print, it also allows for further refinements to solutions that were provided earlier.

Five Year Series (2005-2009)

This publication is SMS' effort to produce the solutions to all the competitions in the years from 2005 to 2009. Besides meeting students' needs for the questions and solutions to earlier publications which have already been out of print, it also allows for further refinements to solutions that were provided earlier.

Five Year Series (2010-2014)

This publication is SMS' effort to produce the solutions to all the competitions in the years from 2010 to 2014. Besides meeting students' needs for the questions and solutions to earlier publications which have already been out of print, it also allows for further refinements to solutions that were provided earlier.

SMO solution book (yearly issues)
For Secondary and Junior College level students

The following books are published each year after the Singapore Mathematical Olympiad (SMO) for the current year has taken place. We have included all the questions and their detailed solutions (as well as useful comments) of the competition in the title. The aim of the publication is three-fold. Firstly, it makes available solutions and comments of the current year's competitions to the participants who are keen to find out the correct answers and workings to the problems. Secondly, it serves as a guideline and exercise for students who are preparing for future competitions. Lastly, it introduces students to challenging mathematical problems not normally encountered in classrooms.
