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

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