- Preparation for AMC 10 (Section A)
Why Participate in the AMC 10
The main purpose of the AMC 10/12 is to spur interest in mathematics and to develop talent through the excitement of solving challenging problems in a timed multiple-choice format. The problems range from the very easy to the extremely difficult. Students who participate in the AMC 10/12 should find that most of the problems are challenging but within their grasp. The contest is intended for everyone from the average student at a typical school who enjoys mathematics to the very best student at the most special school.
A special purpose of the AMC 10/12 is to help identify those few students with truly exceptional mathematics talent. Students who are among the very best deserve some indication of how they stand relative to other students in the country and around the world. The AMC 10/12 provides one such indication, and it is the first in a series of examinations. In this way the very best young mathematicians are recognized, encouraged and developed. Another valuable comparison students can make is between their own level of achievement and their levels in previous years. In particular, they are encouraged to begin taking the contests early in their mathematics studies and to look back with pride each year on how they have learned to answer questions that they could not have answered previously.
AMC 10 (Section A) Class Information
This class will provide a review of core math concepts and specialized training for the AMC 10 while going into more depth and breadth. The course is designed for students who would like to qualify for AIME, as well as those who have already done so and are looking to further improve their problem-solving skills. It is recommended that students have a strong understanding of the school math curriculum as well as an interest in pursuing higher level math.
