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.

This will be done by exposing students to a wide array of MATHCOUNTS® competition questions and involving students in interactive group sessions with the course instructor, whereby students will be introduced to competitive math problem solving strategies. Students earn 100, 200, 300, and 400 points for correctly solving a school, chapter, state, and national level problem, respectively. If the same question is answered correctly multiple times, only the first correct answer during the contest will earn full points, and each of the other correct answers will earn 20% of the full points. Do you like math & problem solving? Did you participate in Math Olympiads in elementary school or did you wish that you had participated? This class will focus on solving challenging math problems from previous Math Olympiads and MathCounts competitions. We will focus on problem solving skills, teamwork, and explaining strategies to each other.

Course Description

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.
