AMC 12 Final Fives

This course is designed specifically to tackle the challenging final five problems of the AMC 12, the first in the series of contests that determine the United States team for the International Mathematics Olympiad. Many prestigious universities also consider AMC scores as part of the college application process. This course teaches you the tactics needed for the last five problems, which often determine the high scorers in the exam. Our sessions will include in-depth discussions of these types of problems, as well as unique, effective strategies to approach them. By the end of the course, students will not only have a clear understanding of these complex problems. This course includes a practice competition focusing on the last five problems of the AMC 12.

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.
