High School Contest Math

Academic Year Mathematics

High school students have relied on AoPS for high school contest preparation since 1993. Over the last decade, most of the winners of the USA Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO) have been AoPS students, including the team members of the 2015 US team that won the International Math Olympiad (IMO). In this course, students study strategies needed for success on the American Mathematics Competitions 12 (AMC 12), the American Invitational Math Exam (AIME), the Harvard-MIT Math Tournament, and other major high school contests.

Note for students who have taken this course: We alternate between two different versions of this course from one year to the next. Therefore, students taking this course for two consecutive years will have different material in the second year than in the first. The two versions are roughly the same difficulty, but provide students different lessons, practice contests, and homework.

Sample Problems

Below are examples of some of the types of problems that students will encounter in our High School Contest Math course.
"AoPS Academy has a superb curriculum, combined with outstanding teachers who have provided our son a fantastic foundation in mathematics. If only I could have experienced teaching like this when I was young, it would have changed my career choice. The academy is a perfect extension of school in that they challenge students to learn at a much deeper and rigorous level. They also stimulate their interest in mathematics by emphasizing analytical thought over rote memorization of formulas.

The academy truly lays a deep foundation in mathematical thinking for success in all areas involving STEM subjects. It is really exciting to be among teachers and children who love math!

The harder the problem - the more exciting it is to the students and teachers at AoPS Academy."
