Registration for this course closed June 14, 2019. We recommend that students enroll in our new course, Middle School Competitive Math I after that date.

Eligibility:CTY-level or Advanced CTY-level math score required

This course is intended to prepare students for future MATHCOUNTS and Math Olympiad for Middle School (MOEMS®) competitions and classes by strengthening their analytical and problem-solving skills. This course is designed to challenge and motivate students with little to no previous experience with MATHCOUNTS or MOEMS at the middle school level. Preparing for math competitions: MathCounts and AMCs. “So they didn’t get this feedback, and this happens a lot. Kids go through school, some very good schools, they get perfect scores on everything, and then they come to a place like MIT, a place like Princeton, they walk into that first year math class, and they see something they’ve never seen before: problems they don’t know how to. MATHCOUNTS ® Founding Sponsors: National Society of Professional Engineers, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and CNA Foundation DO NOT BEGIN UNTIL YOU ARE INSTRUCTED TO DO SO. This section of the competition consists of 30 problems. You will have 40 minutes to complete all the problems.

Description

This course is intended to prepare students for future MATHCOUNTS and Math Olympiad for Middle School (MOEMS®) competitions and classes by strengthening their analytical and problem-solving skills. This course is designed to challenge and motivate students with little to no previous experience with MATHCOUNTS or MOEMS at the middle school level. Familiarity with pre-algebra concepts is strongly recommended, though highly motivated students in grades 5-6 may enjoy the additional challenge.

This course includes notes, practice problems, assessments, and videos for each topic covered to allow students to learn and review both the material and problem-solving skills. Videos are provided by Art of Problem Solving. As students progress through the course, they will complete free response questions and timed practice exams to help them build experience using strategies that will be useful for real competitions.

Each student is assigned to a CTY instructor to support them and give feedback during their course. Students can contact their instructor via email with any questions or concerns at any time. Live one-on-one online sessions can also be scheduled to prepare for the graded assessments, which include homework, quizzes, and a cumulative final exam. In addition, there are weekly group strategy sessions run by an instructor, where students will learn together.

The weekly strategy session will be held online every Tuesday evening from 8 - 8:50 p.m. ET. Attendance is optional and all sessions are recorded so students can watch them at a later time. Instructions and details are posted on the course website for enrolled students.
