AMC 8 is a middle school math competition organized by the American Mathematical Association. It is designed to foster interest in mathematics and promote the development of problem-solving skills. The topics covered include number sense, number theory, estimation, counting, probability, pre-algebra, algebra, and geometry. This is an introduction course targeting mostly 4-6th graders who love math and had little or no AMC8 training before. The course will focus on problems as difficult as AMC8 questions 1 to 10.
