Unless you plan on scoring above ait will not matter. Just buy a bunch of the old tests, and learn your early high school math really well. I agree with PAH You either know the material or you don't.
Ashraf Eassa replies 94 threads Senior Member. I always thought that the AMC wasn't really "studyable" in the sense that each problem requires a significant amount of intellectual fortitude? If you really want to study then just do lots of math contest problems. AoPS have old AMCs both 10 an 12 most people from my school who care about it have no problem passing the AMC, 57 got into AIME this year and it's a public school Just do math problems and learn different ways of thinking to solve the problems.
Normally the more problems you do, the faster you'll know what to look for and how to solve something! Sheed30 replies 91 threads Senior Member. Yea, take a bunch of old ones, I qualified for AIME without prep or anything, it's pretty simple stufff. Physics08 replies threads Member. The AMCs are definitely "studyable. These problems can be frustrating especially if you don't know exactly where to start.
But by repeatedly doing old problems, you're training your mind and become increasingly aware of how to approach these problems and especially how to break the geometry problems down. How far you advance in the AMC is dependent on how early you start prepping although I admit that there is a bit of "natural intuition" involved.
The Art of Problem Solving Books really help. February The books are immensely helpful.
March SAT Scores The Art of Problem Solving hosts this AoPSWiki as well as many other online resources for students interested in mathematics competitions. Look around the AoPSWiki.
Individual articles often have sample problems and solutions for many levels of problem solvers. Many also have links to books, websites, and other resources relevant to the topic. Many mathematics competitions sell books of past competitions and solutions. These books can be great supplementary material for avid students of mathematics. Art of Problem Solving maintains a very large database of math contest problems.
Many math contest websites include archives of past problems. The List of mathematics competitions leads to links for many of these competition homepages. Here are a few examples:. What class to take? AMC prep. How to prepare for amc10 and aime? Preparation for AMC 10? How to prepare for the AIME. Preparation for the AIME.

For those who aren't familiar, the tests come in a sequence as ordered, with fewer people taking each round, until a U. Previously I had relied on my natural math talent to take these tests and as a result I have missed the AIME cutoff by fractions of questions for the past two years. I was wondering what resources are best for studying for the tests. Should I study by doing practice problems or by learning whole new concepts or both?
Thank you. Neither calculus nor linear algebra are needed, but if you're ready for these subjects then by all means continue your studies in math by studying these subjects when you have the appropriate backgroundas life does not end when you're finished with high school math contests. This is a cheap Dover Publications reprint of a book originally published in two thin volumes in and reprinted as one volume in The difficulty of the problems all of which have solutions is slightly higher than the typical strong or honors level U.
Algebra 2 course, which makes it an excellent place to start if your background isn't very strong and you're looking for easier AHSME level problems that stay within approximately U. This is a universally recommended book for contest math that was first published in The 2nd edition was published inand the 2nd edition was later reprinted in and In my opinion, the book is better for the cognitive strategies it lays out than for specific mathematical "tricks".
However, because of this the value of the book will increase as you learn more mathematics and get more experience in contest problem solving. This is the most complete and extensive book on contest math problems that I am aware of. This book was first published in and it gives a "popular" account of the U. Included are discussions, for each of the 6 IMO problems fromon how various contestants solved the problems. Sign up to join this community. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top.

We will have finished only! In addition, on January 30, Vestal High School will be hosting the AMC American Mathematical Competition 10 and 12, which gives math students a chance to show their ability in mathematics. These are 75 minute, 25 question tests that you had to sign up for in December.
The AMC 10 is for people in 10th grade and below who are less than These tests are intended to improve and inspire students mathematical ability.

Or maybe you're a strong math student who is wondering what opportunities are available to you outside the classroom? In this article, we'll answer all your Math Olympiad questions! Only those with top scores will be invited to take the AIME. You have 75 minutes for the entire exam.
Each correct answer is worth 6 points for a maximum score of and each unanswered question is worth 1. There is no deduction for wrong answers. Note that you don't need to get all of the questions right to get a qualifying score.
You just have to do better than most of the other students taking the exam! Keep that in mind as you come up with a strategy for the test. The AIME is a question, three-hour exam, and each answer is an integer between 0 andinclusive. It's offered once a year with an alternate test date available for those who can't make the official exam date in the spring. That means you want to make sure you do your best on it.
The cutoff score for qualifying changes yearly, but it's set so about students qualify for Math Olympiad each year. The top scorers from that competition then have the opportunity to train to be on the US team that competes at the International Math Olympiad. You can find more info on this process over at the Mathematical Association of American website. It's a long process to get to the IMO, and very few students make it that far.
But even just taking the AIME can set you apart in the college admissions process, especially if you are interested in engineering programs.
Vestal Students Prepare for the AMC 10 and 12
Math through pre-calculus covers most topics tested on the AMC 10 and 12 and the AIME, but math competition problems will be trickier than what you see on your usual math homework assignments. If you're not up to pre-calculus in school yet, your first task will be learning the content before focusing on how to solve problems that the AMC 10 and 12 tend to ask. See if there is a teacher or peer who is willing to tutor you if you haven't taken pre-calculus. You could also see if it's possible to take the course over the summer to get caught up quickly.
There may also be private tutoring available in your area that can help get your precalculus skills up to speed! In the meantime, you can explore parts of your own math textbook you haven't gotten to yet, or ask to borrow textbooks from teachers at your school if you want to brush up on a topic not covered in the math class you're taking this year. Also check out these online content resources from the MAA to help you study.
The key to doing well on AMC is not just knowing math and being able to do rote problems, but to know concepts inside and out and be able to use them to solve tricky problems.
The website Art of Problem Solving is a hub for math competition resources and problems, and has been mentioned by many former AMC-takers as a top resource. They have pages on learning to solve certain types of problems, advice on the best prep books, and forums where you can talk to other AIME hopefuls about studying and strategy. This page provides links to practice problems and prep books and is a great place to get started. Our advice to study for the AMC is to do lots of practice problems, and then correct them.
Carefully analyze your weaknesses. Don't just notice what you did wrong, get inside your head and figure out why you got a problem wrong and how you will work to get it correct the next time. To improve your problem-solving ability, you can also consider borrowing or purchasing books specifically about solving math problems.Please see:.
Online Registration is now open! You are very welcome to sign up for our online course which offers a quick, efficient way for students to interact with teachers over long distance.
A commitment to the whole course can maximize the benefit of learning all the math ideas, methods, strategies, tactics, skills, and techniques. There are many math competitions in the United States. Based on the work of the 2 students that week, we will provide the those 2 students with individualized proposal and support.
The emphasis of this class will be on comprehensive problem-solving, which is very common in competitive math. We will also help students develop quick problem solving strategies and effective time management skills. Smaller classes lead to pupils receiving more individual attention from teachers, and having more active interactions with them. We focus on every individual, not the whole class. Students will thrive from the smaller class sizes that allow them to reach their full potential.
Particularly, students can benefit tremendously from high-frequent individualized student-teacher interactions leading to establishment of a stronger foundation for lifelong learning.
Our main purpose is to help our students gain deeper understanding of the fundamental math concepts, build a solid foundation in math, and develop the critical thinking and problem-solving skills that are so valuable to success in any career.
The most important thing is to have fun. Very impressively, 32 middle schoolers and 7 elementary schoolers qualified for the AIME! Remarkably, 11 middle schoolers and 2 elementary schoolers qualified for the AIME!
Remarkably, eight middle schoolers and one elementary schooler qualified for the AIME, which is geared toward high school students. Particularly, seven middle schoolers and one elementary schooler qualified for the AIME, which is geared toward high school students.
Pravalika P. We are only one in the Washington DC metropolitan area to offer elementary, middle, and high-school level competition math courses.
Our students have received top scores and awards at prestigious national math competitions. In an increasingly competitive college application pool, the process of mastering math skills through our courses and participating in the American Math Competitions will help students strengthen and diversify their extracurricular activities.
Many top colleges also request AMC scores as part of the college application process. Your children deserve the chance to list these scores on their applications! Good AMC scores will greatly enhance admission opportunities for students to elite colleges.
