|Course Size||Maximum 25 students, minimum of 6|
|Tuition||$595 per semester|
|Schedule||View the Fall and Spring semester weekly schedule|
|Student Support||If students have questions or concerns, they can discuss them with their instructor before and/or after class as well as by email. Emailed questions will be answered within 24 hours. Parents can help their students by guiding them towards constructing well thought out questions.|
Each class will consist of a lecture where a concept is developed and applications toward problem solving explored. Intermittently during the lecture, students will be given problems to test their grasp of the concept and to foster the related problem-solving skills.
Students will be assigned 2-3 problems a week as homework with an expected minimum time requirement of 1-2 hours per week to be able to benefit from the class. However, students should not expect to achieve full mastery of the material by doing only the minimum. To get the absolute most out of the class, they should attempt more problems from the handout daily and seek advice via email. The instructor will seek to respond with a helpful hint in the right direction within 24 hours of receiving an email. Students should be specific on what ideas they have so far in a problem so guidance can be most effectively given.
|Curriculum||The following is a list of topics to be covered over the course of a year in class (each math course is designed to be taken for a
minimum of two semesters in order to cover the material/topics necessary to move up to the next level course) with different topics each semester. We cover 3 topics from each
area: Algebra, Combinatorics, Geometry, and Number Theory. These topics may include:
Fall 2022 Semester:
Spring 2023 Semester:
|Suggested Resources (Optional)||
106 Geometry Problems
111 Problems in Algebra and Number Theory
112 Combinatorics Problems
|Additional Benefits||Building foundational skills of problem solving and mathematical concepts that can lead to higher-level thinking and ability to function in higher math, ability to reason through problems and concepts for the purpose of writing proofs and learning fun math!|
Novice: Problem Solving 2 – Online
SKU: AMA-CRS002-1 Category: Course
This course is online and intended for students who have been active in math competitions for a couple of years (obtained mid to high AMC 8 scores up to low to mid AMC 10 scores) and wish to further expand their abilities by consolidating their mathematical foundation to learn more advanced and in-depth concepts that can be applied on math contests and much more.
