* Wiskunde_Alympiade (dutch)

General

The 'problem solving' or 'modelling' component is contained in the mathematics curriculum in many foreign countries. Working on these skill is often put on the shelf, because textbooks often don't provide good examples of appropriate tasks and teachers do not know how they are supposed to deal with this. If no structural support is provided, this component is likely to disappear from the curriculum: it will not be practised and will certainly not be assessed.

The Mathematics A-lympiad fills this 'gap' perfectly by providing appropriate tasks to practice these skills. This is both the case in the Netherlands as well as in the other participating countries. The contents of the mathematics curricula do not need to be exactly the same. In the Mathematics A-lympiad these other 'higher order' skills are being used.
