Special AMC 8 Problem Seminar B

This course is a special two-day, 5-hour 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 new in 2019 and covers different problems than the Special AMC 8 Problem Seminar A.

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.
The material for this class is new in 2019 and is distinct from the Special AMC 8 Problem Seminar A.


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

This was the best math course I have ever taken. I have always been very strong in math and have taken many challenging courses. Intermediate Algebra challenged me at a greater level. Writing problems are the main way that Intermediate Algebra challenged me at a new level. If I had not taken this course, I never would have known the complex proof methods I have learned. The writing problems have also made me more prepared to succeed at contests like the Mandelbrot Competition and the USAMO, as I have learned proof-writing strategies. I always like to know a lot about topics, especially topics that I have a passion for, like math. Intermediate Algebra fulfilled that desire. This was also a great help for preparing for contests like the AMC 12. All in all, this was an excellent course.
