Who Should Take?

Students just getting started with middle-school math contests should consider our MATHCOUNTS/AMC 8 Basics course. Students with more consistent success in these contests (in particular, students who score 15+ on the AMC 8 or 25+ on Chapter-level MATHCOUNTS competitions) should consider our MATHCOUNTS/AMC 8 Advanced course. See our MATHCOUNTS guide for a comparison between the Basics and Advanced courses.

Students who have not completed a pre-algebra class (or equivalent training through prior preparation for MATHCOUNTS) should start with our Introduction series of classes rather than our MATHCOUNTS class. Please visit our Course Recommendations page to determine which class is best for you.

This course was definitely one of the most challenging but rewarding courses I've taken. It pushed me to think beyond my limits which is something school has never been able to truly accomplish for me in the math field. It also included very nice explanations that helped me learn a lot. I will definitely put this knowledge to good use! Thanks!
