Middle School Contest Math

Academic Year Mathematics

Middle school math contests such as MATHCOUNTS are a launching pad for many of the best math students. In this course, we draw problems from middle school contests such as 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 new topics in counting, probability, and number theory, while reviewing topics in algebra and geometry and applying these concepts to advanced problems.

Note for students who have taken this course: We alternate between two different versions of this course from one year to the next. Therefore, students taking this course for two consecutive years will have different material in the second year than in the first. The two versions are roughly the same difficulty, but provide students different lessons, practice contests, and homework.

Textbook: the Art of Problem Solving, Volume 1: the Basics

Hardcopy and temporary access to the online version of the textbook are included in the tuition and fees of this course.
