Special AMC 8 Problem Seminar

This course is a special 5-hour weekend seminar to prepare for the AMC 8, which is the premier fall math contest for middle school students. The AMC 8 also gives students early problem-solving experience that is valuable towards the high-school level AMC 10 and AMC 12 contests, which are the first stage in determining the United States team for the International Math Olympiad. In this course, students learn problem solving strategies and test-taking tactics. The course also includes a practice AMC 8 test. This course is the same as the Special AMC 8 Problem Seminar offered last year.

Who Should Take?

This class is appropriate for students in grade 8 or below attempting to make the Honor Roll on the AMC 8.
  • If a student already consistently scores above 18 on the AMC 8, this class is probably not necessary.
  • If a student is unlikely to score more than 8 on the AMC 8, that student should consider our Prealgebra curriculum.

Lessons

Lesson 1 Word Problems and Number Theory
Lesson 2 Counting and Geometry

I really enjoyed this class! This online classroom provided all of the clarification I needed for Prealgebra. The challenge problems had me actually thinking and Alcumus really helped me practice the strategies that I was taught. I learned many, MANY things this year and I now understand things that I never understood before. The classes were very fun and engaging and went at the perfect pace. I also enjoyed having the transcripts to refer to when I had to miss a class or was in need of rereading some information that I'd forgotten. All in all, this was a SUPER great class and I am looking forward to joining Prealgebra 2!
