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 camp is a challenge which builds on foundational knowledge that students should already have from their middle school math courses. Students should expect to encounter difficult problems and topics throughout the camp.

Our family regularly talks about AoPS. We try to think about how our life would be different without you all. What if my daughter hadn't learned to love math? What if she never experienced being pushed to her limits? Overcoming failure? She wouldn't be who she is. And she is AWESOME! A very proud mom here. We are so fortunate that we found AoPS Academy. I credit AoPS for much of her confidence.
