Prof Pillay compiled A Training Manual for South African Mathematics Olympiads in 2014. This publication has been extensively revised and extended, resulting in 1000 Mathematics Olympiad Problems. This 637-page printed version, like its predecessor, is directed to all learners who participate in Mathematics Olympiads. Equal attention is given to entry level Olympiad problems, as well as challenging questions that provide ample preparation for learners who advance to higher rounds in local and international competitions. The book had been designed so that it can be used by teachers who plan to train their learners in solving non-routine problems. It is also eminently suitable for self-study. Each problem is a assigned a cognitive level, ranging from Level 2 to Level 10, as well as the areas that are tested. The solutions to all the problems are given in detail. The eleven Lessons and six Appendices cover almost all the theory that is required to solve the problems, providing the wherewithal for both teachers and talented young learners to extend their mathematical horizons considerably. In particular, teachers can teach a lesson which is in the curriculum and select problems that are more challenging than the ones that routinely appear in school textbooks. In this way problem solving skills of all learners, from Grades 7 to 12, would be greatly enhanced.

CD: A Training Manual for SA Mathematics Olympiad

The manual is especially useful for those who want to prepare for Round 1 and 2 of the South African Mathematics Olympiad. The book is divided in to three sections: Problems, Lessons and Solutions. An attempt is made in the lessons to cover the theory that is required for the solutions of most of the problems. The solutions are represented in such a way that most of the learners would understand them. The publication is available as a CD.
