AIME Problem Series A

Preparation for the AIME, the second in the series of tests used to determine the United States team at the International Math Olympiad. Many top colleges also request AIME scores as part of the college application process. The course also includes a practice AIME test.

Who Should Take?

Our AIME Problem Series A and AIME Problem Series B courses are designed for students who are very confident that they will qualify for the AIME contest. Students who consistently expect to score 8 or more on the AIME may instead wish to consider our WOOT program. AIME-qualifying students would also benefit from any of our Intermediate-level subject courses.

Please note, we offer two versions of this class: AIME Problem Series A and AIME Problem Series B. These two courses are roughly the same difficulty, but the problems covered in the two courses are completely different. Many students opt to take both classes, and the classes can be taken in either order.


Lesson 1 Equations
Lesson 2 Complex Numbers and Polynomials
Lesson 3 Functions
Lesson 4 Inequalities, Sequences and Series
Lesson 5 Counting
Lesson 6 Probability
Lesson 7 Number Theory
Lesson 8 Algebraic Methods in Number Theory
Lesson 9 Analytic Geometry and Trigonometry
Lesson 10 Euclidean Geometry I
Lesson 11 Euclidean Geometry II
Lesson 12 Extending Your Geometric Range

The problems covered did a good job of illustrating common techniques. The explanations were very clear. I especially enjoyed how rigorous the solutions given were (e.g. the instructor would ask us to prove that the locus in a certain case is a circle rather than just telling us it is a circle). Thanks to this course, I've seen large improvements in my AIME problem solving ability, especially in counting and probability and geometry.
