AMC 10 Contest Preparation Class

         The American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) consist of a series of increasingly difficult tests — the AMC 8, the AMC 10/12, the AIME, and the USA(J)MO — for students from middle school and high school designed to challenge bright students beyond their normal mathematical curriculum and build critical thinking and problem solving skills that will help them throughout their academic career and their lives. The AMC 10 — a 25-question multiple choice contest — serves as most students’ first exposure to high school-level math contests.

      Good AMC scores will also enhance admission opportunities for students to elite colleges.

Time: 1:30 to 3:30pm, Saturday, 9/3 to 12/10 (No class on 11/26.)

AMC 8 training class will start soon. 初中数学竞赛训练班

The AMC 8 contest is for students in the sixth through eighth grade, although accelerated fourth and fifth graders can also take part.

AMC 8 is 25 questions in length, and is multiple-choice with no penalty for guessing. The contest takes 40 minutes. A student’s score is the number of problems correctly solved.

Why participate in AMC-8 (quoted from AMC-8 website)

A special purpose of the AMC 8 is to demonstrate the broad range of topics available for the junior high school mathematics curriculum.

Additional purposes of the AMC 8 are to promote excitement, enthusiasm and positive attitudes towards mathematics and to stimulate interest in continuing the study of mathematics beyond the minimum required for high school graduation. Developmentally, junior high school students are at a point where attitudes toward school and learning, and perceptions of themselves as learners of mathematics are solidified. It is important that they be provided opportunities that foster the development of positive attitudes towards mathematics and positive perceptions of themselves as learners of mathematics. The AMC 8 provides one such opportunity.

Test date: 11/17/2016

The American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) is the oldest and most prestigious nationwide mathematics competition in the United States. It started in 1950 and it is and has been the exclusive pathway for a student to advance to the USA Mathematical Olympiad.

Activities like the American Mathematics competitions organized by the Mathematical Association of America allow and encourage students to excel in an academic sphere. The contest is a rewarding experience where mathematical curiosity and skill are stimulated.  AMC is designed to inspire an interest in mathematics that will lead to academic success, scholarship and a rewarding career.

Many well-known colleges and universities request scores from AMC contests at the higher grade levels and use them for recruiting and admissions.

Nelson Niu, Kevin Chang and Matthew HL are all experienced teachers and tutors who have worked as tutors for many years.

Nelson, Matthew and Kevin are all USAMO qualifier and MIT Primes. Nelson and Kevin got into MOSP, Matthew got into PROMYS.

All of them have received many other amazing national level awards, too.

教授數學課的三位年青人Nelson,Kevin和Matthew都很優秀,并富有教學經驗(Kevin在A star和春暉教过暑期班,Nelson和Matthew在春暉教育有數年的教學經驗)。Nelson和Kevin进了美国国家数学奥赛集训队(MOSP,全美50人)。三位都进了MIT Primes(全美17人)和USAMO,还得過许多其他国家级的竞赛大奖。Matthew進了(PROMYS,80人)


数学竞赛 Math Contest training camp starts from next week

Counting and Probability 与Number Theory 是各种数学竞赛的必要知识。而且这些都是学校数学没有包括进来的。在暑期修好这两门课,可以为以后的数学竞赛学习打下良好基础。

教授这两门课的两位优秀年青人Nelson和Kevin 不仅自己都进了美国国家数学奥赛集训队(MOSP,全美50人),和MIT Primes(全美17人),还都有其他国家级的竞赛大奖。他们都富有教学经验。(Kevin在A star 教过暑期班,Nelson在春晖教育有数年的教学经验。)

Counting and Probability

A topic ranging from the number of digits used to number the pages in a 100 page book, to the probability of rolling doubles on two dice. This topic is prevalent in middle and high school competitions, including Mathcounts and AMC, as well as being a part of high school Algebra 2/Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus courses. After taking the class students will have mastered and will be able to solve commonly found problems on these competitions.

Number Theory

A topic rarely covered in high school, from divisibility rules to prime numbers, this topic appears on Mathcounts and AMC problems quite often. Mastering this often helps with understanding more abstract math concepts in high school and college, such as in Calculus and beyond. This also will touch on several proof methods, such as proof by contradiction and induction, which are essential for proof-level mathematics competitions such as BAMO or USA(J)MO.

凡上了Kevin Lei 数学课的学生,一定会爱上数学的!3/1开课.

Algebra 1 不仅是传统数学学习的关键学科,也是数学竞赛的关键基础环节。上Kevin 的数学课,相信一定会激发您孩子对数学的学习兴趣,以及思路,思维。为孩子在初高中数学以及科学的学习的学习兴趣以及知识上奠定基础

Kevin Lei 自2012年10月开始在春晖教育学院教课,得到了每位学生的好评。

一个9年级的高中生说:He’s the best teacher ever. Kevin Lei, Kevin Lei, he’s awesome, Kevin Lei. “

一位6年级的初中生说:This place is a good education facility. Especially Kevin Lei. He is totally 100% better than most (not all, so don’t be insulted of you are a teacher) other teachers! He’s awesome and is an excellent teacher.    

一位妈妈给Kevin说:My son is very interested in your class, and he came home saying how much he enjoyed your teaching.

无论是JAVA,Computer Science, 还是AIME,Counting & Probability, 还有Number Theory 等他教的每一门课,Kevin讲课时都驾轻就熟。教科书只是他的教学大纲,教的内容都在他脑子里,他可以把复杂枯燥的概念解释得非常清楚,课堂生动活泼。他甚至能调动起每一个学生争先恐后到台上演示自己的解题思路(他的课堂上没有害羞的学生)

标准化考试是令人非常紧张的事,比如SAT 1推理考试和ACT考试,学生都想尽量避免这些考试。考试时间长达几小时,虽说在漫长的折磨中会有些短暂休息。选择适合的考场会非常有助于你少分心,因而可把更多精力集中在考试上。一般来说,最好的考场就是你感觉最舒服的那个地方。以下五点可以帮你理解什么样的是好考场。

Competition Math for Middle School Students


Every student can compete in math contests. AMC 8 and Mathcounts require no more than middle school math. Taking part in contests will help students develop problem solving skills that last through all of life.

The teacher, Matthew, is excellent at inspiring and motivating young students toward math. All of his students last year liked him and enjoyed his class a lot!
