601 Mathematical Problems for ‘O’ Level


This book is written for the latest Mathematics GCE ‘O’ level Syllabus. The problems are grouped into units according to their major topics in the syllabus. Within each unit, similar problems under the same sub-topic are grouped together. In most groups, variables are added to each subsequent problem to increase the difficulty level.

The problems are broadly categorised into three levels:

  • Level 1: Problems which require knowledge of a concept to solve
  • Level 2: Problems which require knowledge and application of 1 or 2 concepts to solve
  • Level 3: Problems which require knowledge and application of at least 2 concepts from 1 or more topics to solve.

Detailed solutions are provided at the end of the book to enable learners to check for correct answers and increase their understanding.
