  • We will focus on efficient tricks, shortcuts, and strategies to solve competitive math problems, especially those hard problems on the AMC 10/12 and easy problems on the AIME, as well as test-taking tactics.
  • The emphasis of this class will be on comprehensive problem-solving, which is very common in competitive math, but is not included in school curriculum.
  • We will utilize a highly effective teaching model as described in the article: Small-sized Class Instruction-focused Model.

You are very welcome to sign up for our Online Intensive AMC 10/12 Prep Fall Weekend Course which offers a quick, efficient way for students to interact with teachers over long distance. We use Google Hangouts to video chat and easily connect with students to teach them our tricks and shortcuts to getting an amazing score on their contests, as well as offer them our guidance and support. Students can ask questions face-to-face, and can complete problems with the supervision of our teachers/coaches.

A commitment to the whole course can maximize the benefit of learning all the math ideas, methods, strategies, tactics, skills, and techniques.

Tuition: $600 (including all materials). We offer discounts of $30 for returning students.

There are many math competitions in the United States. Of those, only AMC → AIME → USAMO sequence would take you to the IMO (International Math Olympiad), the highest level math competition for high school students in the world!

AMC 10-12-New

Specific Goal: To earn a score of 120 or more out of 150 on the American Mathematics Contest 10 (AMC 10), or a score of 100 or more out of 150 on the American Mathematics Contest 12 (AMC 12), and then qualify for the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME), which is used to determine qualification for the United States of America Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO). See for more details: Optimal Strategies to Solve Hard AMC Problems

Who should take this class: This class is very appropriate for 7th-12th grade students who are hoping to qualify for the AIME.

Benefits:

  • 6 tutorial handouts (>300 pages) developed by Dr. Henry Wan and 500 new problems similar to AMC 10/12 level from the licensed AMC Database.
  • 2 FREE mock tests that are intended to mimic an actual math competition exam. Each test has 25 questions taken from the licensed AMC Database. Mock tests are calibrated to be at the same difficulty level as the real AMC 10/12. These simulated tests help students assess their level of preparation for the Math Competitions. After attempting the test, students get answers, explanations, and a detailed score report and wise performance summary.
  • FREE registration for the AMC 10/12 A — Tuesday, February 7, 2018 and/or AMC 10/12 B — Wednesday, February 15, 2018. Please see: The AMC 10/12 Contests at Montgomery College on February 7, 2018, and February 15, 2018

Weekly Homework:

At least 3 hours per week. Problem sets include all problems from 36 past real AMC 10/12 test booklets, and 500 brand new problems having similar difficulty and style as the real AMC 10/12 problems, extracted from the licensed AMC Database.

The focus will on the final 10 problems on the AMC 10/12, and the first 3 problems on the AIME, as well as those hard problems on the ARML. Note that some hard problems on the recent AMC 10 and 12 are exactly the same as previous ARML Problems.

Each week, we will carefully review and check 2 students’ homework, and correct any mistakes. The next week, we will check another 2 students’ homework, and this will continue on a rotational basis until all students have had their homework checked at least once and the cycle will start again. Based on the work of the 2 students that week, we will provide the those 2 students with individualized proposal and support.

Qualifying AIME

Class Outline:

In the final sprint of AMC 10/12 preparation, we will focus on efficient tricks, shortcuts, and strategies to solve AMC problems as well as test-taking tactics. The emphasis of this class will be on comprehensive problem-solving, which are very common in competitive math. We will also help students develop quick problem solving strategies and effective time management skills.

Class Date Topic
1 1/7, Sun The art and craft for solving AMC counting, statistics and discrete probability problems
2 1/14, Sun Efficient strategies for testing primality and finding the prime factorization to solve AMC number theory problems
3 1/21, Sun Applying Special Factoring Trick (Completing the Rectangle) to solve hard algebra problems on the AMC
4 1/28, Sun  Using area method, Mass Point Geometry, Barycentric Coordinates, and sophisticated algebra to solve hard geometry problems on the AMC
5 2/4, Sun Most commonly used methods to draw auxiliary lines, and applying the ruler, protractor, and compass to solve geometry problems (See for more details: Optimal Strategies to Solve Hard AMC Geometry Problems)
6 2/11, Sun Number bases, modular arithmetic, integer divisions, and linear congruences at the heart of a great many AMC problems

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.AMC LogoSmall-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.

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.

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 and math competitions. We have collected 116 full-length real AMC 10/12 problems sets containing 2,960 problems, as described in the article “116 Full-length Real AMC Problems Sets are a Golden Resource to Our AMC 10/12 Prep Program.” Particularly, we have extracted additional 3,000 brand new problems at the level of the AMC 10/12, from the licensed AMC Database. In addition, we have also collected all AMC8/10/12 and AIME Official Solutions as shown in the article “American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) Materials.” All these materials have formed a golden resource for our students, who are the ultimate beneficiaries.
