Awesomemath Academy Online Courses – Fall 2018
Intermediate Problem Solvers
Intermediate Problem Solvers
This course is intended for students who have been active in math competitions for a few years (obtained mid to high AMC 10 scores up to qualifying for AIME) and wish to further expand their abilities by consolidating their mathematical foundation to learn more advanced and indepth concepts that can be applied on math contests and much more.
AwesomeMath uses the Zoom platform for the online courses. After we receive and processes the full payment for the course, we will send you a confirmation and meeting ID. You will be able to access the student dashboard beginning January 1st, 2018.
Is this course for you? Please review this readiness guide before registering to ensure the course is the right fit. If your student can answer 4 questions without assistance, the Intermediate course is the right level and if your student can answer 8 questions without assistance, Advanced is the right level course.

Office Hours (Q&A sessions) 
30 mins at the end of each subject area for students (every 3rd class) 
Class Structure  The class will start with 4560 minutes focus lecture on selected topics. The remaining time will be dedicated to work on problems related to such topics. Students will be able to work together in a breakout room, while the instructor helps moderate the room and give guidance or encouragement when necessary. Students will have several assigned homework problems which should be turned in electronically one day before the next class begins. Instructor recommends at least 2 hours of study time per week for the students to gain an understanding of the fundamental concepts and to become proficient with the topics. In order for students to fully master the material presented in class they should work on average 12 hours per day. 
Curriculum 
The following is a list of topics to be covered over the course of a year in class, with different topics each semester. We cover 3 topics from each of area Algebra, Combinatorics, Geometry, and Number Theory. These topics may include

Advanced Problem Solvers
This course is intended for students who are ready to stretch their strongly developed mathematical skills (obtained high AMC 10/12 scores to midlevel AIME results) and wish to further expand their abilities by consolidating their mathematical foundation to learn more advanced and indepth concepts that can be applied on math contests and much more. If your student is at the high AIME level and wishing to bridge their problem solving skills to the USA(J)MO level and beyond, please register for AwesomeMath YearRound.

Class Structure  The class will start with a 4560 minutes lecture that will be focused on selected topics. The remaining time of class will be devoted to working on problems related to such topics. Students will be split into breakout rooms so they can work together, while the instructor will help moderate discussions and give guidance/encouragement when necessary. Students will have several assigned homework problems which will be turned in electronically one day before the next class begins. The instructor recommends at least 3 hours of work per week so students can fully understand the fundamental concepts of the lecture.

Physics Level 1  Online
Physics Level 1 – Online
This course is intended to be the first encounter with physics problem solving for students with strong math skills. This course will guide them towards successful participation at the F = ma competition, which eventually leads to the International Physics Olympiads. The curriculum will cover the same areas as the F = ma competition, i.e., parts of classical mechanics, at a level beyond PreAP highschool physics. This course will not involve calculus.
Main goal: After taking this course, students will be ready to solve about a quarter of the problems at the annual F = ma competition in January, considered a great accomplishment for firsttime participants and equivalent to passing AMC10/12 math competition.
To experience the spirit of our classes, please see the recent recording of our "open house" webinar in which we talked about the rules of the F=ma exam, Einstein's discoveries of 1905, and a number of problems from a recent F=ma exam: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lng7_rtpgq0
Who  Students in grades 8th  9th, occasional 6th  7th graders, selfmotivated 

Tuition  $395 Full payment required at the time of registration. No checks accepted. 
Course Size  Maximum 15 students 
Course Structure 
This course requires the student to work independently through the material that is posted online weekly. This course is a selftaught, instructorassisted online learning environment. Students must be selfdisciplined and should expect to participate in the program as designed.

Estimated Weekly Time Commitment 

Q&A Sessions 
6:00pm  7:00pm CST, Saturdays  ONLINE Q&A SESSIONS January: 6, 20, 27 February: 3, 10, 17, 24 March: 3, 24, 31 April: 7, 14 To maximize learning, students are strongly encouraged to attend the weekly online Q&A session. However, attendance is not a mandatory requirement to enroll in the course.

Additional Benefits  This course will go a long way to prepare the kids for at least a part of the CBE (Credit by Exam) High School Physics tests, so they can test out of the High School Physics and take AP Physics as soon as the 9th or 10th grade. Again, our primary goal is to prepare the kids for physics competitions; CBE readiness is a side benefit. 
Expected Prior Knowledge  No prior exposure to physics is required. Very strong math skills are needed equivalent to Algebra 2, especially solving linear and quadratic equations, trigonomertic identities, vector algebra, and exponential and logarithmic functions. 
Physics Level 2  Online
Physics Level 2 – Online
The Level 2 course is intended to be the continuation of the Level 1 course, going deeper into physics problem solving and taking the students further in physics competitions. The curriculum will cover the same areas as the F = ma competition, i.e., parts of classical mechanics, at a level beyond AP physics. This course will not require calculus, but we will learn some of it.
Main goal: After taking this course, students will be ready to solve more than a half of the problems at the annual F = ma competition in January, which is often enough to qualify to the next level and is considered equivalent to passing the AIME math competition.
