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 really liked this course because the approach to math was much more interesting than in school. The explanations were thorough. I liked that the course touched on a lot of different topics that are based more on logic and applying concepts we have already learned. Also, the online classroom idea is more convenient than attending an actual class. This was my first course, but I will want to do more now.
