|Curriculum||There are four main subject areas covered in math competitions: Algebra, Combinatorics, Geometry, and Number Theory. Our goal with the Online Summer Program is to build and hone students problem solving skills in these four fields. We offer 16 courses per session which cover 4 difficulty levels in the four subjects mentioned above.|
|Course Structure||The instructor(s) of each course will teach the lecture and supervise the problem sessions that follow. There will be a 10 minute break between lectures and problem sessions. Students will be split into breakout rooms with a supervising TA so they can work together; the instructor/TA will help moderate discussions and give guidance/encouragement when necessary.
Students will have several assigned homework problems which will be turned in electronically for feedback and grading. In order to achieve proficiency of the material presented in class, students are expected to work on average 1-2 hours per day for each class. If students have questions or concerns regarding the material taught, they can email the instructor/TA, actively participate in the problem sessions, and attend weekly office hours. Emailed questions will be answered within 24 hours.
Because communication plays an important role in developing problem solving skills, students will be asked to participate actively in the problem sessions, i.e., to ask questions and present and defend solutions. Students can choose from one to six courses over the course of three sessions.
|Social Activities||Students can participate in organized and supervised online social activities 2-3 times per week, outside of class time, so that they can get to know each other, form lasting friendships, and feel comfortable collaborating during class.|
|A wide variety of books covering a large spectrum of topics and level are available. We added new features to our bookstore to facilitate a better shopping experience. You can now filter by subject, competitions, AMSP levels, as well as Academy levels. As a summer program participant, you will be able to purchase books at a significantly reduced price.|
