Math Jams

Math Jams

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.

To attend a Math Jam, simply sign in to Art of Problem Solving just before the Math Jam begins, and click on the Classroom bar that will appear on the screen. The Math Jam classroom will open 10 minutes before the Math Jam begins. (See Classroom System Requirements)

Our Math Jams are held in the same online classroom as our online courses. Click here to read more about how our online classroom works.
