JEI Problem Solving Maths will help students who are already advanced in
maths, or who simply enjoy seeking a good challenge. The programme further
develops critical and analytical thinking skills by exposing students to
various types of complex questions. It includes maths problems similar to
those found in competitions, such as America Maths Competition and
National Maths Olympiad.

Here, the focus is on reasoning, inference and problem
solving strategies, which are much-needed skills
for solving the problems.
