This class will help prepare students for the AIME mathematics competition. We will cover all the main topics and techniques on the AIME, including geometry, number theory, counting, probability, and algebra. We will also work on problem solving strategies and study skills.
Classes will consist largely of working through problems together, with theorems and concepts presented as they arise.
This class will be held online using the Zoom videoconferencing software. We will also use an online whiteboard where both students and instructor can write.
Suggested homework problems will be given (but not graded).
We are anticipating a small class size (probably under 10), so students will get plenty of individual attention and opportunities to ask questions.
The class will run for 90 minutes Saturday evenings at 8:30 pm ET/5:30 pm PT. The dates and rough syllabus are as follows:
|2/17||Optimization and Complex Numbers|
|3/3||Attacking Hard Problems|
The course is taught by Sean Markan, a veteran teacher of mathematical problem solving. He is an instructor at Art of Problem Solving, an MIT alumnus, and a former MOPper, among other things. He has coached numerous students who have made it to the AIME and USAMO.
There is an early-bird special for this class. If you register and pay on or before December 28, 2017, the registration fee will be $245. Afterwards it will be $270.
In order to get an accurate picture of enrollment, we will not be able to refund your registration fee once you register. However, if there is a compelling reason why your child can no longer attend, we may at our discretion allow you to apply the amount to a future class or to one-on-one tutoring.
