In this intensive summer course, middle school students develop the critical math skills and strategies they need to succeed in prestigious middle school competitions.
Middle School Math Contests: Number Theory and Geometry
Choose the right level
Middle School Math Contests: Number Theory and Geometry is designed for students in grades 6 through 8 who want to excel at math competitions such as MATHCOUNTS and the American Mathematics Competitions 8 (AMC 8), and prepare for high school events like American Mathematics Competitions 10 (AMC 10).
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.
Our instructors hold classes virtually, in a small-sized (10-16 students) videoconferencing classroom.
There is no required homework for Middle School Math Contests: Number Theory and Geometry. However, we've prepared more materials than we can cover during class and many students continue working on them after class for extra practice.
