MATHCOUNTS/AMC 8 Basics

This course is an introduction to the problem solving strategies required for success on MATHCOUNTS and the AMC 8 tests. This class is intended for less experienced students who are just getting started on middle school math contests. Experienced MATHCOUNTS and AMC 8 students should consider our Advanced MATHCOUNTS/AMC 8 class.

Who Should Take?

This class is appropriate for students who are interested in MATHCOUNTS and want to show what they can do on this contest.

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.

I really liked how interactive the class was. I definitely learned a lot of new things by participating in the class. I wish there were more weeks in this class!
