2022 Introduction to the GEA Mathematical Olympiad Course (Year6~ 10)

The 24th Winter Olympic Games have just concluded in Beijing, China. We all know that what sports promote is the Olympic spirit that is to pursue excellence and perfection. The most important thing in any Olympic Games is not to win but to take part. As an intellectually competitive Mathematical Olympiad, the same beliefs hold true.

Mathematical Olympiads play a very positive role in stimulating students' interest in learning, developing intelligence, cultivating innovative ability and broadening their horizons. By carrying out Mathematical Olympiad activities, we can better educate outstanding students and develop high-quality skills.

It is pivotal to start cultivating high-quality skills as early as possible, this then leads to better development of their critical thinking, innovative spirit and practical problem solving. Mathematics, as one of the most important basic disciplines, is vitally important in this process.

Looking at the history of famous scientists around the world, it is evident that people who excel at mathematics develop good work ethics and learning methods, and many of them will become excellent scientists in the future. For example, in the United States, Tao Zhexuan(Terence Tao), DB Mumford, D. Quillen, and JW Milnoretc, were not only the winners of mathematical competitions, but also the winners of the Fields Medal in Mathematics. In Poland, the famous number theorist A. SchinzelHe was also a winner of a mathematics competition in his schooling days. In Hungary, the famous mathematicians L. Fejer, M. Riesz, G. Szego, A. Haar, R. Rado and more were all winners of mathematical competitions.

In Australia, primary and secondary education mainly focuses on so-called "applied mathematics", which lacks the development of creative thinking and skills, and rarely covers many important fields. In order to cultivate these innovative and high-quality ability alongside the standardized continuous learning of basic mathematical knowledge and skills in the classroom, conscious and planned supplementation will be focused on to make up for any deficiencies that may have arisen.

To compete with the increasingly acute international competitive scene, the Australian government has begun to increase its investment in mathematics in the last ten years and has launched a series of corresponding training plans at all levels to carry out "elite education". Galaxy Education Alliance (previously Smart Dragon Academy) is the leading institution in this field. In the past ten years, not only have we successfully trained many outstanding students for the Australian mathematical competitive scene, but dozens of students have achieved the honour of being selected to enter the Hall of the National Team. Every year, many of our students represent Australia to compete in various international competitions with excellent results, this has also greatly helped many of our students to be rewarded with a full scholarship from many private schools. Anyone is always welcome to come to our school to see our Hall of Fame display. Galaxy Education Alliance will continue to carry this legacy and to provide the best development platform for all our students.

Today's world is in a stage of rapid development of informatization and intelligence. In the history of humanity, science and technology have never had such an important impact on the world and its individuals as they have today. Galaxy Education Alliance is constantly reviewing, improving, and enhancing our self-developed curriculum to meet all the changes and the different requirements of the changing world. Our teaching philosophy has also gradually changed from not only pursuing great academic results, but also to improving the quality of all-round education and striving to help our students to gain and keep long-term abilities and skills.

Years of accumulated experiences and lessons from a vast conglomerate of students and teachers alike alongside frequent resource reviews has strengthened our teaching team to be ready to conquer any challenges at any time and guaranteed our materials to be up-to-date and in-line with real time requirements.

As this year was the year of our organisational reform, we have updated both our Maths Enrichment curriculum as well as the supporting Mathematical Olympiad curriculum. We are confident that with all these improvements, the Galaxy Education Alliance experience will greatly assist our students to achieve more.
