Our Uniqueness

We have a long history of close collaboration with the MAA‘s American Mathematics Competitions (AMC), which are dedicated to strengthening the mathematical capabilities of our nation’s youth, and are the first of a series of competitions in high school mathematics that determine the United States team for the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO).

We are only one in the Washington DC metropolitan area to offer elementary, middle, and high-school level competition math courses. Our students have received top scores and awards at prestigious national math competitions.

Great Benefits of Math Competitions

In an increasingly competitive college application pool, the process of mastering math skills through our courses and participating in the American Math Competitions will help students strengthen and diversify their extracurricular activities. These contests can motivate students’ interest and passion in math, and they can discover their talent through solving challenging problems different from those in the school classes. Many top colleges also request AMC scores as part of the college application process. Both MIT and Caltech have entry blanks on their official admission application forms for the applicant to enter their best AMC and AIME scores. Ivy League Colleges and Stanford ask for to the AMC and AIME scores in their Supplement to the Common Application Forms. Your children deserve the chance to list these scores on their applications! Good AMC scores will greatly enhance admission opportunities for students to elite colleges.

Small-sized Class Teaching Model: We utilize the highly effective small-sized class teaching model. Smaller classes lead to pupils receiving more individual attention from teachers, and having more active interactions with them. We focus on every individual, not the whole class. Students will thrive from the smaller class sizes that allow them to reach their full potential. Particularly, students can benefit tremendously from high-frequent individualized student-teacher interactions leading to establishment of a stronger foundation for lifelong learning.

Our main purpose is to help our students gain deeper understanding of the fundamental math concepts, build a solid foundation in math, and develop the critical thinking and problem-solving skills that are so valuable to success in any career. We are big believers in the FUNDAMENTALS! Our students will receive the LIFELONG BENEFITS from learning math.

IMG_2563_0

Regardless of his/her math level, each student will have the opportunity to learn math in a fun, friendly, cooperative, supportive learning environment. The most important thing is to have fun.

We have to face the simple truth that to do well on these grueling contests, we will need to practice. Just like it is for sports and music, the key to success is repetition and practice. We strongly believe in effort and the malleability of intelligence. Intelligence can be enhanced through effort. People can develop impressive levels of expertise through hard work and practice. Effort and persistence are the keys to success. Hard work always pays off: practice makes perfect!

All problems from past AMC 8 exams (1985-2019) and MathCounts (1990–2020) form our “big data” system. Based on artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and deep learning, we devised a data mining and predictive analytics tool for math problem similarity searching. Using this powerful tool, we examined the types, styles, frequencies, characteristics, and traits of questions in all these materials, and then completely “decoded” the AMC 8 and MathCounts. We always completely show all the “secret code” cracked from the above big data to our students, and teach them to totally grasp and “control” the AMC and MathCounts. For all questions on the recent AMC/MathCounts contests, we can find their “ancestors” and “roots” from the old AMC/MathCounts problems. Therefore, the best way to prepare for the contest is to practice by solving old AMC/MathCounts problems.

Main Purpose:

Our main purpose is to help our students gain deeper understanding of the fundamental math concepts, build a solid foundation in math, and develop the critical thinking and problem-solving skills that are so valuable to success in any career. We are big believers in the FUNDAMENTALS! Our students will receive the LIFELONG BENEFITS from learning math.

Regardless of his/her math level, each student will have the opportunity to learn math in a fun, friendly, cooperative, supportive learning environment. The most important thing is to have fun.

The 2020 AMC 10/12 Contests Recycle Three Previous AIME Problems

The AMC 10/12 contests are getting harder. This year, the 2020 AMC 10/12 contests recycled three problems from previous AIME contests, which proves that higher level problems are showing up on lower level exams

These three problems from previous AIME contests are shown below:

  • The 2020 AMC 10A Problem 19 is the exact same as the 2016 AIME I Problem 3.
  • The 2020 AMC 12A Problem 24 is the exact same as the 2012 AIME I Problem 13.
  • The 2020 AMC 10B Problem 21 (also known as Problem 18 on the 2020 AMC 12B) is the exact same as the 2015 AIME I Problem 7.

Because we discussed the detailed solutions for these three problems from past AIME contests in our AMC 10/12 prep class, our students were able to successfully answer these exact same problems on the 2020 AMC 10/12 contests. This greatly improved their overall score to qualify for the AIME.

Because the AMC 10/12 problems are getting harder, we must practice not only previous AMC 10/12 problems but also easy or medium difficulty level problems from previous AIME to do well on the AIME.1136217959-c032701ebba946fc4a01ff9a1aa9f3cd

Great Benefits of Math Competitions

In an increasingly competitive college application pool, the process of mastering math skills through our courses and participating in the American Math Competitions will help students strengthen and diversify their extracurricular activities. These contests can motivate students’ interest and passion in math, and they can discover their talent through solving challenging problems different from those in the school classes. Many top colleges also request AMC scores as part of the college application process. Both MIT and Caltech have entry blanks on their official admission application forms for the applicant to enter their best AMC and AIME scores. Ivy League Colleges and Stanford ask for to the AMC and AIME scores in their Supplement to the Common Application Forms. Your children deserve the chance to list these scores on their applications! Good AMC scores will greatly enhance admission opportunities for students to elite colleges.

We collected all problems all problems from past AMC 12 exams (2000-2017) and AHSME (1950–1999) to form our “big data” system. The AHSME (American High School Mathematics Examination) was the former name of the AMC 12, before 2000. Based on  artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and deep learning, we devised a data mining and predictive analytics tool for math problem similarity searching. Using this powerful tool, we examined the types, styles, frequencies, characteristics, and traits of questions in all these materials, and then completely “decoded” the AMC 12.

According to the “secret code” cracked from the above big data, we developed 20 sets of AMC 12 mock test that are intended to mimic the actual AMC 12 exam, each of which with 25 brand new questions all calibrated to be at the same difficulty level and style as the real AMC 12.  These simulated tests are extremely helpful to assess student’s level of preparation for the AMC 12 Contest. For each of the 20 mock tests, we also devised detailed solutions to all 25 problems.  All these mock tests and their detailed solutions have formed a golden resource for our students, who are the ultimate beneficiaries.

The SAT Subject Test in Math Level 2 covers the content of pre-calculus. The best time to take the SAT Subject Tests in Math is at the end of the course, when the material is still fresh in your mind. June is the best time to take it, with May as a close runner up.

Theoretically, you need to have completed a pre-calculus class with a solid “B” or better to feel comfortable on the Math 2, whereas the content of the Math 1 test covers only Algebra 2 and basic trigonometry. Some advanced math students (pre-calculus or beyond) make the mistake of taking Math 1 instead of Math 2 on the premise that it will be easier to score higher on the Math 1. In fact, the Math 2 test is scaled much more generously than the Math 1 test to compensate for its more advanced concepts.

A perfect score on the SAT Subject Test in Math Level 2 is impressive to any college, and especially to selective technical and engineering schools like MIT and Caltech!

Getting an 800 on the SAT Subject Test in Math Level 2 is not easy. But with hard work and our help, you will be able to do it. Almost all of our students scored 800 on the SAT Subject Test in Math Level 2, and we know what it takes to get there.

The best way to prepare for the exam is definitely to practice past tests. We have a long history of close collaboration with the College Board, and have compiled a set of 20 previous full-length official SAT Subject Math Level 2 exam booklets. All these materials have become a golden resource for our students, who are the ultimate beneficiaries.

All problems from past official SAT Subject Math Level 2 exams have formed our “big data” system. We have used data mining, descriptive statistics, and predictive analytics to carefully examine the types, frequencies, and pattern of questions in all these materials, and then completely “decoded” the SAT Subject Math Level 2. We always show all the “secret code” cracked from the above big data to students, and teach them to totally grasp and “control” the SAT Subject Math Level 2. In fact, for all questions on the recent SAT Subject Math Level 2 exams, we can find their “ancestors” and “roots” from the old SAT Subject Math Level 2 problems. We show you how to get the RIGHT ANSWER with the RIGHT WAY on every question as it was designed to be solved. We show you the thinking and logic that is actually being tested, not only tips and tricks.

Our philosophy is extremely different from most experts in that we concentrate on test specific strategy that students have never seen in a traditional class setting. The strategy is designed to save time, avoid carelessness, solve problems from past SAT Subject Math Level 2 tests, and exploit the weaknesses of standardized tests, as opposed to spending valuable time on the conventional teaching of mathematics.

Our SAT Subject Math Level 2 course and tutoring will include a discussion of the effective use of a graphing calculator to solve SAT Subject Math Level 2 problems. We will also help students develop quick problem solving strategies and potent time management skills. The timing of the Subject Math Level 2 is limited. In total, you will have 60 minutes to knock down 50 math problems – that leaves you with 1 minute and 12 seconds per math question on average (keep in mind that some questions will take less time and others will take more time). We will train you to be able to solve each math problem within one minute, even hard problems.

We are only one in the Washington DC metropolitan area who have a contract with the College Board to use all real questions from the past SAT Subject Math Level 2 tests in our SAT Subject Math Prep program. Our students have gained great benefits from the program and received top scores on the SAT Subject Math Level 2 tests. In particular, 613 students achieved a perfect score of 800 on SAT Subject Test in Math Level 2 in the past few years. Please view here: Notable Achievements of Our Students

2020-2021 AMC Online Policies — Announcement for the 2020-21 Competition Cycle

Dear AMC community,

Starting Fall 2020, the AMC is providing an online option, in addition to the paper option to administer its competitions. Whether your participants are physically and/or virtually, attending school, we recommend participants take the competition(s) online for greater ease and convenience. Thank you for securing the safety of yourself and others during this competition administration cycle.

In considering options to administer the competitions online, the AMC looked into proctoring platforms; for the sake of our participants’ privacy and security, we decided against these options. We want to avoid placing our participants’ personal information and home environment, via video streaming and recordings, at risk.

In our physically-administered competitions, we ask competition managers to monitor participants. For the online competitions, we are now broadening our proctoring group to parent(s) or a responsible adult. Parents and competition managers are working hard to ensure the competition is administered with fidelity and adopted procedures to deter cheating during the AMC

Again we’ve made these decisions after much debate and deliberation. Thank you for being part of the AMC community and diligently adhering to the policies below. We are enthused to support you throughout the competition cycle.

The AMC team

Important Policies for ONLINE Administration

How to Register for the AMC Online

Valid Administration Time Period

  • AMC 8: Competitions must be administered between November 10 – 16 with the testing window starting 8 AM Eastern Standard time (GMT +5) on November 10, 2020 and expiring 11:59 PM Eastern Standard time (GMT +5) on November 16, 2020.
  • AMC 10/12: Competitions must be administered no earlier than 8:00 AM and no later than 11:59 PM Eastern Standard time (GMT +5) on the official USA competition dates: the AMC 10/12 A is administered on February 4, 2021 and the AMC 10/12 B on February 10, 2021.

Proctoring

  • Proctoring options include parent/guardian proctoring and Competition Manager proctoring.
  • If Competition Managers are administering the competition, then they have the option to administer the competition online or in-person (at a school or public location). Only one type of administration is allowed per competition.
  • If participants are taking the AMC from home, competition managers must choose online administration for those participants. We are asking for parents or another responsible adult to serve as the AMC proctor.
    • As part of the registration process, there are fields asking for the proctor’s contact information (name, email address, phone number), which can be edited until the start of the competition. If there is any suspicion of cheating or unapproved resources, proctors will be contacted. Participants should be continuously monitored by the proctor.
    • View Disqualification and Cheating policies here.

How the AMC can help you get into the Ivy Leagues

In this article, you will learn about:
1. Why the AMC is more important than the SAT
2. How the AMC can help you get into the Ivy Leagues
3. What is the AMC

1. Why the AMC is more important than the SAT
If you’re serious about the Ivy Leagues/top US colleges, esp. top STEM schools such as MIT, Caltech and Stanford, you should be focused as much on the AMCs as you are on the SATs. If fact, we think the AMC is more important.

The SAT doesn’t differentiate students very well. It behooves college board to increase the number of students who take the SAT, there is already an inflationary bias built in. Let’s look at the numbers:

The number of students who took the SAT in 2016: 7.3 million students – a 10% increase from the previous year. The class of 2017 is the largest cohort in SAT history. So, if you scored in the top 1% of test-takers last year, you would 1 of 73,000 students. And the numbers are likely to continue going up.

However, the AMC is run by the Mathematical Association of America; a non-profit managed by volunteer mathematicians. They care about preserving the integrity and quality of the test, seeking to challenge students. So, there is a strong deflationary bias built in. Let’s look at the numbers:

The number of students who took the AMC 12 this past year: 44,915. In 2016, the AMC 12 had 57,939 test-takers. And in 2015, there were 55,833 test-takers for the AMC 12. Not many and they’re not increasing. The MAA also regularly increases the difficulty of the tests some years to keep the passing threshold tight. So, if you make it to the AIME, you’re in the top 5% or 1 of only 2,245 students.

So, what will demonstrate academic excellence to the admissions officers at MIT more, being 1 of 73,000 students or 1 or 2,245? MIT usually has about 20,000 applicants a year, so you can bet that having the best SAT score will NOT make you stand out.

2. How the AMC can help you get into the Ivy Leagues

Another reason the AMC is so important is that the top schools now explicitly ask for AMC scores (not required).

Here are screen shots of the Caltech application:

columbia undergraduate admissions

columbia university admission rate

The second image is a screen shot of the entire page where they have a section for AIME scores as well.

Here is the MIT application:

columbia university requirements to get in

In addition, you can highlight your AMC accomplishments in the Activities section of the application and also include them in your essays. And there are lots of essays to write!

3. What is the AMC?

The American Mathematics Competition (AMC) is the first in a series of competitions to determine the US representative team for the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO).

The AMC 8 is for students in grades 8 and below
The AMC 10 is for students in grades 10 and below
The AMC 12 is for students in grades 12 and below

So high school students would be focused on AMC 10 and 12. However, most of the students who score well tend to start in the 6th grade with the AMC 8.

If you score well, you make it to the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME). To catch the eyes of admissions officers at MIT and Caltech, you’ll need to make it this far and score well on the AIME.

For real math superstars, a top score on both the AMC and AIME will lead to an qualification status for the United States of America Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO). If you are an International student, you cannot participate on the US team, but you can still get the USAMO qualification, which will really set you apart on your college applications.

Warmest congratulations to Isabella Z. and Zipeng L. for being accepted into the Math Olympiad Program!

The Mathematical Olympiad Program (abbreviated MOP) is a 3-week intensive problem solving camp held at the Carnegie Mellon University to help high school students prepare for math Olympiads, especially the International Mathematical Olympiad.
While the program is free to participants, invitations are limited to the top finishers on the USAMO (United State of America Mathematical Olympiad). The winners were selected based on their performance on the AMC, AIME, and USAMO competitions administered over the course of the year. This year, we have two students who were among the 61 students selected nationwide to attend. Warmest congratulations to Isabella Z. and Zipeng L. for this incredible honor!
2020-MOP

In all 75 students attended the three-week long program. Sixty-one of the students qualified for MOP based on their performance in the MAA American Mathematics Competitions program. An additional 14 international students participated in the program through an effort to provide students with a multi-cultural experience like the one the members of the IMO team have when they travel to the international competition.

The summer program is the team’s final chance to prepare together for the international competition and gives the students the opportunity to hone problem-solving skills alongside mathematically talented peers.

The main purpose of the AMC 10/12 is to spur interest in mathematics and to develop talent through the excitement of solving challenging problems in a timed multiple-choice format. The problems range from the very easy to the extremely difficult. Students who participate in the AMC 10/12 should find that most of the problems are challenging but within their grasp. The contest is intended for everyone from the average student at a typical school who enjoys mathematics to the very best student at the most special school.

You-can-do-it-BABY

In 2019, over 510,000 students from over 4,100 U.S. and international schools competed for school, regional, and national awards in this contest and found it fun and rewarding. Top 20, well-known U.S. universities and colleges, including internationally recognized U.S. technical institutions, ask for AMC scores on their application forms. Our students deserve the chance to list these scores on their applications!

you-can-do-it-1r8

With these contests, there are awards in each school for the student with the highest score, certificates for high-scoring students in each school, state-wide awards, regional awards, and even national awards. These contests lead to other more selective math contests, all the way to the USA team sent to the International Mathematical Olympiad, the premier international high school level problem solving contest.

body_youcandoit

But the real rewards come from challenging each student with mathematics that is new, different, and “outside of the box.” The problems on the contest are hard, but designed to be within reach. Just by participating in the contest your student should still feel accomplishment, because these problems are meant to be more challenging than routinely encountered in mathematics courses.

YouCanDoItPuppy
Mathematics is increasingly important in our technological and scientific age. Taking enough mathematics in school is the gateway to jobs and careers of all kinds, even those that are not explicitly mathematical, scientific or technological. We hope that by offering these contests, we can challenge and inspire students to want to learn more mathematics. We hope that your son or daughter enjoys the contests and will continue to take mathematics courses in middle school, high school and beyond.

What do these cutoffs mean?

After the AIME I and AOIME are scored, the USAMO committee and MAA AMC program will determine the cutoff indexes that will qualify students for USAMO or USAJMO. USA(J)MO qualification scores are determined by AMC 10/12 and AIME scores.

For this 2019-2020 competition cycle, the AMC will uphold this process to determine USO(J)MO qualifiers. Acknowledging that some students may have taken both AIME I and AOIME, both scores will be considered when setting cut-offs for those students. The AIME I and AOIME cutoff scores will be split. The student’s USO(J)MO indexes are calculated as follows:

USOMO Index = AMC 12 Score + 10 sign AIME I/ AOIME Score
USOJMO Index = AMC 10 Score + 10 sign AIME I/ AOIME Score

Our Uniqueness

We have a long history of close collaboration with the MAA‘s American Mathematics Competitions (AMC), which are dedicated to strengthening the mathematical capabilities of our nation’s youth, and are the first of a series of competitions in high school mathematics that determine the United States team for the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO).

We are only one in the Washington DC metropolitan area to offer elementary, middle, and high-school level competition math courses. Our students have received top scores and awards at prestigious national math competitions.

Great Benefits of Math Competitions

In an increasingly competitive college application pool, the process of mastering math skills through our courses and participating in the American Math Competitions will help students strengthen and diversify their extracurricular activities. These contests can motivate students’ interest and passion in math, and they can discover their talent through solving challenging problems different from those in the school classes. Many top colleges also request AMC scores as part of the college application process. Both MIT and Caltech have entry blanks on their official admission application forms for the applicant to enter their best AMC and AIME scores. Ivy League Colleges and Stanford ask for to the AMC and AIME scores in their Supplement to the Common Application Forms. Your children deserve the chance to list these scores on their applications! Good AMC scores will greatly enhance admission opportunities for students to elite colleges.

The AMC 8 is a fun mathematics competition, aimed primarily at middle school students in grades 6, 7, and 8. Highly motivated 4th and 5th grade students are encouraged to participate as well. Last year the AMC 8 contest involved over 150,000 students worldwide.

With these contests, there are awards in each school for the student with the highest score, certificates for high-scoring students in each school, and state-wide awards. The AMC 8 contest can lead to other more selective math contests, even all the way to the United States of America team sent to the International Mathematical Olympiad, the premier international high school level mathematical problem solving contest. But the real rewards come from challenging each student with mathematics that is new, different, and “outside of the box.” The problems on the contest are difficult, but designed to be within the reach of students. Even so, if your son or daughter managed to solve only one or two problems, this should be an encouragement to learn more, because these problems are meant to be more challenging than students routinely encounter in their mathematics courses.

Mathematics is increasingly important in our technological and scientific age. Taking enough mathematics in school is the gateway to jobs and careers of all kinds, even those that are not explicitly mathematical, scientific or technological. We hope that by offering these contests, we can challenge and inspire students to want to learn more mathematics. We hope that your son or daughter enjoys the contests and will continue to take mathematics courses in middle school, high school and beyond.
