Special AMC 10 Problem Seminar B

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 A.

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 A.

Lessons

Lesson 1

Counting and Number Theory

Lesson 2

Algebra and Geometry

I really enjoyed this class. While taking WOOT, I learned about several interesting areas that I had not previously studied, including functional equations, generating functions, vectors/complex numbers, and convexity. The feedback from the practice Olympiads was useful in that it told me exactly where my solutions failed so I could investigate how to fix them. However, I feel that the most valuable aspect of this class was the problems. WOOT had few problems that could be solved immediately with a standard procedure; instead, the problems took some time to solve, challenging me to consider many solution methods before I found the one that worked.
