Special AMC 8 Problem Seminar A Online Math Course

Special AMC 8 Problem Seminar A

We will be running this two-day class on Tuesday 3/24 and Thursday 3/26.

This 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 — on both Tuesday and Thursday, 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, but is the same as the Special AMC 8 Problem Seminar offered prior to 2019.

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 distinct from the Special AMC 8 Problem Seminar B, but is the same as the 2018 Special AMC 8 Seminar.

Lessons

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

I have loved every Art of Problem Solving course I have ever taken, but this one may have been my favorite of all. Every week, I learned many new concepts, and Counting & Probability turned from my least favorite area of math to one of my favorites. The instructor was very knowledgeable and helpful. I look forward to taking more Art of Problem Solving classes in the future!
