Overview

The AMC 8 is a 25-question, 40-minute, multiple choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development of problem-solving 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 problem-solving challenges in a low-stress 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.
