Special AMC 8 Problem Seminar

This course is a special 5-hour weekend seminar to prepare for the AMC 8, which is the premier fall math contest for middle school students. The AMC 8 also gives students early problem-solving experience that is valuable towards the high-school level AMC 10 and AMC 12 contests, which are the first stage in determining the United States team for the International Math Olympiad. In this course, students learn problem solving strategies and test-taking tactics. The course also includes a practice AMC 8 test. This course is the same as the Special AMC 8 Problem Seminar offered last year.

Who Should Take?

This class is appropriate for students in grade 8 or below attempting to make the Honor Roll on the AMC 8.
  • If a student already consistently scores above 18 on the AMC 8, this class is probably not necessary.
  • If a student is unlikely to score more than 8 on the AMC 8, that student should consider our Prealgebra curriculum.

Lessons

Lesson 1 Word Problems and Number Theory
Lesson 2 Counting and Geometry

I really enjoyed this course. It was at the perfect level of challenge for me, and I learned a lot (and had fun!). I love the amount of detail that is put into the course. I think the amount of homework was just right, enough to cement in the knowledge without any busywork.
