Math Jams are free online discussions hosted by Art of Problem Solving for a variety of purposes, including:

- Informational sessions about Art of Problem Solving classes.
- Review of the AMC and AIME competitions.
- Introductions to new topics in math and other areas of study.
- Special events, such as our annual discussions with admissions officers and professors from outstanding universities such as MIT, Carnegie Mellon, Stanford, and Duke.
