Special AMC 8 Problem Seminar B Online Math Course

Special AMC 8 Problem Seminar B

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 new in 2019 and covers different problems than the Special AMC 8 Problem Seminar A.

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.
The material for this class is new in 2019 and is distinct from the Special AMC 8 Problem Seminar A.

Lessons

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

Great course. As a senior in high school I decided to take this course as I had never been exposed to math that required problem solving in my education, let alone discrete math. With this class I went from almost no discrete math knowledge (and commensurately poor problem solving skills) to a place where I will be taking the 400-level combinatorics sequence at my University in a few months and have had concurrent improvement in my problem solving ability.
