Middle School Math Contests: Number Theory and Geometry

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 topics in number theory and geometry, and will work individually or collaboratively to solve challenging problems related to these topics. 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 camp is a challenge which builds on foundational knowledge that students should already have from their middle school math courses. Students should expect to encounter difficult problems and topics throughout the camp.

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 are more than two weeks before the course starts, a $200 deposit will be due when enrolling, with the balance due two weeks before the course begins.

Summer Enrollment Deadline: Summer enrollment for each class closes one week after the class starts.

"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."
