MATH
Math Program Highlights
Instructor(s)

Group lessons: In our online and inperson math classes, we help the students develop logical thinking routines, to prepare them for AMC, Math Kangaroo, MOEMS and other math competitions.

Math Competition Teams: We organize math competition teams for Math Kangaroo, MOEMS and other math contests. Instructions and training are provided to help the students be well prepared and build confidence in the math competitions.

Assessments: Ongoing assessments are arranged via monthly tests and weekly homework, to make sure the students master the contents of the courses and make good progress in their learning journey.

Overview
The AMC 8 is a 25question, 40minute, multiple choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development of problemsolving skills. The AMC 8 provides an opportunity for middle school students to develop positive attitudes towards analytical thinking and mathematics that can assist in future careers. Students apply classroom skills to unique problemsolving challenges in a lowstress and friendly environment.
The material covered on the AMC 8 includes topics from a typical middle school mathematics curriculum. Possible topics include but are not limited to: counting and probability, estimation, proportional reasoning, elementary geometry including the Pythagorean Theorem, spatial visualization, everyday applications, and reading and interpreting graphs and tables. In addition some of the later questions may involve linear or quadratic functions and equations, coordinate geometry, and other topics traditionally covered in a beginning algebra course.
Class Schedule

Online Mock Test (40min) + Question Solving & Analyzing: 12/22/2022, 01/09/2023, 01/12/2023
Overview
This is the continuation course to the AMC8 course, and the goal is to bridge the gap between AMC8 and AMC10. Students planning to get a competitive score in AMC8 or to participate in AMC10 for the first time to test water are all good candidates for this course. More advanced math knowledge and problem solving skills will be covered. Problems in this course are becoming more challenging, and hopefully students will enjoy cracking out more impossible problems.
