New Delhi: Unicus Olympiads, first Online Summer Olympiad Exam, has recently unveiled Non-routine Mathematics Olympiad (UNRMO)for the students of classes 3 to 10. This new Olympiad has been designed to test the students’ fundamentals and make them accustomed to non-routine questions in the mathematics examination. The Level 1of the Olympiad is absolutely free of cost for all and has gained quite a momentum in students since its launch.
Non-Routine mathematics examination enables students to expand their thinking ability, creativity, logical reasoning, analytical skills among others. Solving non-routine mathematics questions require students to figure out the concept to be used in a given problem and requires them to attempt the question as per the understanding of the concept. There’s no standard way to solve such questions. Students, when they consistently grapple with these challenging problems, they acquire essential problem-solving skills and the confidence to tackle the questions asked.
“Mathematics is everywhere, from calculating distance, time, and cost for your planned travel journey to concepts of geometry and trigonometry involved in recreational sports. It is present around; just you need to have the vision to observe and feel mathematical concepts. Then these questions would certainly pop-up in your mind that ‘Why is it necessary to have when we already have routine mathematics in place? Or why have we introduced the concept of Non-Routine Mathematics?’ Understanding the concepts and learning to apply these is the proven tactic to excel in Mathematics lifelong. The best method to get a stronghold over the fundamentals is through solving non-routine Mathematics problems. Solving such problems helps students improve thinking ability skills, analytical skills, logical reasoning, analytical thinking, and more,” said Nitin Godawat, Managing Director, Olympiad Success.
