Middle School Math Contests: Algebra and Counting

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 algebra, counting, and probability, 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 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.

"One of the best decisions I ever made was to send my son to AoPS Academy for improving his math skills. The results are simply amazing! In addition to dramatically improving his math skills, my son also enjoys the social environment that the academy offers. Personally, I am very impressed with the quality of the entire staff (teaching and non-teaching alike). I would not hesitate to recommend AoPS Academy to any parent who is serious about developing their child's academic potential in a safe and stimulating environment."
