## Revision as of 18:51, 16 March 2019

The Art of Problem Solving hosts this AoPSWiki as well as many other online resources for students interested in mathematics competitions. Look around the AoPSWiki. Individual articles often have sample problems and solutions for many levels of problem solvers. Many also have links to books, websites, and other resources relevant to the topic.

## Contents

- 1 Math Competition Classes
- 2 Math Competition Problems
- 3 Articles
- 4 A Huge List of Links

## Math Competition Classes

- Art of Problem Solving hosts classes that are popular among many of the highest performing students in the United States. AoPS Problem Series.
- EPGY hosts classes for AMC students.

## Math Competition Problems

### Problem Books

Many mathematics competitions sell books of past competitions and solutions. These books can be great supplementary material for avid students of mathematics.

- ARML has four problem books covering most ARML as well as some NYSML competitions. However, they are generally difficult to find. Some can be ordered here.
- MOEMS books are available here at AoPS.
- MATHCOUNTS books are available here at AoPS.
- AMC books are available here at AoPS.
- Mandelbrot Competition books are available here at AoPS.

### Problems Online

Art of Problem Solving maintains a very large database of math contest problems. Many math contest websites include archives of past problems. The List of mathematics competitions leads to links for many of these competition homepages. Here are a few examples:
