Middle School Math Contests: Number Theory and Geometry

Summer Mathematics

Middle-school math contests such as MATHCOUNTS are a launching pad for many of the best math students. In this course designed for rising 6th through 8th graders, we draw problems from several middle-school contests, including MATHCOUNTS and the American Mathematics Competitions 8 (AMC 8), as well as beginning high-school contests like the American Mathematics Competitions 10 (AMC 10). Students are introduced to important topics in number theory and geometry, and will work individually or collaboratively to solve challenging problems related to these topics. Students will also participate in practice individual and team competitions during the camp, which will provide them both mathematical skills and test-taking experience that will prepare them for key events in the upcoming school year.

This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day. Summer 2020 courses will run online for all sessions.

Space is very limited for our summer programs. Please do not wait until the last minute to enroll. If there are more than two weeks before the course starts, a $200 deposit will be due when enrolling, with the balance due two weeks before the course begins.

Summer Enrollment Deadlines: Summer Language Arts enrollment for each class closes two weeks before the class start date to allow time for delivery of course reading material. Summer Math enrollment for each class closes one day before the class starts.
