Special AMC 8 Problem Seminar AThis course is a special two-day, 5-hour seminar to prepare for the AMC 8 and other middle school level math contests. The AMC 8 is the premier fall math contest for middle school students, and also gives students early problem-solving experience that is valuable towards the high-school level AMC 10 and AMC 12 contests. In this course, students learn problem solving strategies and test-taking tactics over two lessons — during each lesson, class will meet over a 3-hour period, with a half-hour break in the middle. The course also includes a practice AMC 8 test. This course covers entirely different problems than the Special AMC 8 Problem Seminar B. |

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.
