I am a teacher of gifted program in primary school and currently I am developing Olympiad Curriculum (topic-wise) for my students. I have those topics that could need some help in terms of questions:

  • Number theory: common multiples, unit digit, divisibility and remainder
  • Combinatorics: counting figures
  • Geometry: area of polygons and circles
  • Logical thinking: logical puzzles
  • Arithmetic: solve complex arithmetical problems, number puzzles..

Can anyone suggest good books/e-books for me to add in question banks? Thank you!

    $\begingroup$ In English, at least in the US, a person with extraordinary talent, particularly a child, is called "gifted." As in: God, or Odin, or the Flying Spaghetti Monster gave this person a gift at birth (rather than talent achieved through hard work.) @tatan Gifted programs are programs for gifted students. $\endgroup$ – Thomas Andrews Jul 22 '16 at 12:51

For olympiads

All this books start from the most basic level and progresses till the most advanced concepts in a lucid way.If you want more advanced books,you may mention in the comments.

  • $\begingroup$ I think this could help everyone! Thanks for the post :) however, do you think this is the level the OP is looking for? Will primary school students be able to grasp this? I would really like to know what the OP had in mind (types of questions and difficulty) @Andrew Hoang $\endgroup$ – Joshua Lochner Jul 22 '16 at 13:02
  • $\begingroup$ @JoshuaLochner This books start from quite basic level and if there's someone to explain you (a good teacher) this books are a real asset to you...btw,if you like my post,you can upvote it...;-) $\endgroup$ – tatan Jul 22 '16 at 13:04
  • $\begingroup$ Agreed ;) Upvote :D do you maybe have any other suggestions? I would love to read some of these. Also would it be possible to provide a "grade" or "year" for each book? $\endgroup$ – Joshua Lochner Jul 22 '16 at 13:19
  • $\begingroup$ @JoshuaLochner Yeah...I hope you would love to read these.... $\endgroup$ – tatan Jul 22 '16 at 13:23

    $\begingroup$ In my opinion, the contents in those links provided by tatan is not suitable for primary students (except for the "genius". This type I cannot handle xD ). But thank you anyway for supporting this topic tatan. @JoshuaLochner $\endgroup$ – Andrew Hoang Jul 23 '16 at 13:27
