Middle School Math Contests

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 new topics in areas such as counting, probability, and number theory, while reviewing topics in algebra and geometry and applying these concepts to advanced problems. 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 summer's camp will focus primarily on topics in geometry and number theory during the instructional components of the course, while problems from all areas of middle school contest math will be included in the daily practice contests.

This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day.

Space is very limited for our summer programs. Please do not wait until the last minute to enroll. If there is more than a week before the course starts, a $200 deposit will be due when enrolling, with the balance due one week before the course begins.

Schedule

Sample Problems

Below are examples of some of the types of problems that students will encounter in our Middle School Math Contests course.
"General coaching classes at many academic training centers stress repetition of the concept until a student grasps it thoroughly. At AoPS Academy, they go far beyond repetition. Their highly qualified instructors do a great job at teaching fundamental concepts to students at much greater depth, and challenge them to walk that extra mile by presenting them with more complex problems to solve. It provides a great learning experience in a friendly, fun, yet competitive and challenging environment. They provide their students with a combination of excellent instructional curriculum along with amazing online tools. AoPS Academy also encourages students to take part in various competitions. Overall they do an incredible job imparting a deep knowledge of both math and language arts to all of their students, and AoPS Academy sets them on a path towards their career goals. We are happy to be part of AoPS Academy family!"
