AMC 12 Problem Series

Preparation for the AMC 12, the first test in the series of contests that determine the United States team for the International Mathematics Olympiad. Many top colleges also request AMC scores as part of the college application process. The course consists of discussion of problems from past exams, as well as strategies for taking the test. The course also includes a practice AMC 12 test.

Who Should Take?

Our AMC 12 course is designed for high-school students who have completed an algebra and geometry course and can currently score 60+ on the AMC 12 contest. Students not yet meeting this standard should instead consider Introduction to Geometry, Introduction to Counting & Probability, Introduction to Number Theory, or one of our Intermediate courses. Students who consistently score 90+ on the AMC 12 would probably not benefit from this course and should instead consider our AIME A and AIME B courses.

This class has been really helpful so far! The instructors are awesome. I especially enjoy working through hard problems in class - it helps me compare how I would have solved the problem on my own to a slicker solution. I've learned a lot about counting and geometry from this class.
