    Curriculum

    Our expert instructors use content developed by the Art of Problem Solving curriculum team to teach Middle School Math Contests: Number Theory and Geometry. As a deep exploration of challenging mathematics, AoPS curriculum prepares students for success at top universities, and competitive careers. No books are required for this class.

    Middle school math contests are a launching pad for many of the best math students. In this course, we draw problems from several middle-school contests, including MATHCOUNTS and the American Mathematics Competitions 8 (AMC 8), as well as early high-school contests like the American Mathematics Competitions 10 (AMC 10). We introduce students to important topics in number theory and geometry, and work both individually and collaboratively to solve challenging problems.

    During the camp, students also participate in individual and team practice competitions to develop both the mathematical skills and test-taking experience that will prepare them for the upcoming school year.
