Description. This course will develop the student's ability to solve challenging mathematical problems. Students will work both collaboratively and individually on competition problems pulled from the AMC 10/12 (American Mathematics Competition).
Student Responsibilities. Students should bring a writing utensil and a notebook. Chromebooks will be provided by the school, but students are welcome to bring their own if they prefer.
The problem sets in this course consist of problems chosen from the AMC 12A/B exams for 2017-19 and the AMC 10A/B exams for 2014-16. The 300 problems were categorized according to topic area and then arranged into 19 problem sets, each consisting of 10-20 problems. The warmups consist of 200 problems chosen from the AMC 8 exams for 2009-18 (problems 1-20 only).
