Special AMC 10 Problem Seminar A

This course is a special 5-hour weekend seminar to prepare for the AMC 10, which is the first step in qualifying for the United States Junior Math Olympiad. Many top colleges also request AMC scores as part of the college application process. In this course, students learn problem solving strategies and test-taking tactics. The course also includes a practice AMC 10 test. This course is entirely different from the Special AMC 10 Problem Seminar B, but is the same as the Special AMC 10 Problem Seminar offered prior to 2019.

Who Should Take?

This class is appropriate for students who are hoping to pass the AMC 10. If a student already consistently scores above 120 on the AMC 10, this class is probably not necessary, and if a student is unlikely to score more than 80, then that student should start with our Introduction series of classes. The material for this class is distinct from the Special AMC 10 Problem Seminar B, but is the same as the 2018 Special AMC 10 Seminar.


Lesson 1 Counting and Number Theory
Lesson 2 Algebra and Geometry

I felt that the course covered each major topic present on the AMC 10 very well, introducing the most common types of problems that I have seen/expect to see on AMC 10 tests. The practice test was also extremely well written, and I enjoyed the problems and the thorough solutions. Thanks very much!
