Classic Text Series is considered to one of the best categories from Arihant, it is a compilation of some of the amazing works done by the great teachers, authors and writers across the globe in the field of mathematics & science.
“The Contest Problems – Book – I” as the name suggests this book has been provided with ample number of problems, which is constituted by “Charles T. Salkind” a unique mathematician. This problem collection is designed by mathematics club for high school teachers, students and other interested Individuals. The problems presented in the book would benefit the students by providing the challenges. The reader might try themselves on a whole test or on a part of a test with or without time limitations. Answers are provided in the book if a student get stuck in the problem, for the conceptual understanding complete solutions are also provided at the end according to the series of the examination paper i.e. from 1950 to 1960 that help students to understand things in much different and in an innovative way. The amazing thing about this book that while studying the solutions, even the successful problem solver may find sidelights that they had overlooked, they may find more elegant and different ways of solving the problems that will lead him into deeper levels of mathematics. This book builds special interest for the mathematics that lead them into new problem solving methods.
