AMC 12 Problem Series

Preparation for the AMC 12, the first test in the series of contests that determine the United States team for the International Mathematics Olympiad. Many top colleges also request AMC scores as part of the college application process. The course consists of discussion of problems from past exams, as well as strategies for taking the test. The course also includes a practice AMC 12 test.

Who Should Take?

Our AMC 12 course is designed for high-school students who have completed an algebra and geometry course and can currently score 80+ on the AMC 12 contest. Students not yet meeting this standard should instead consider Introduction to Geometry, Introduction to Counting & Probability, Introduction to Number Theory, or one of our Intermediate courses. Students who consistently score 120+ on the AMC 12 would probably not benefit from this course, and should instead consider our AIME A and AIME B courses.


Lesson 1 Quadratics, Vieta, and Factorization
Lesson 2 Solving Equations and Systems
Lesson 3 Sequences and Series
Lesson 4 Functions and Polynomials
Lesson 5 Tools of Algebra
Lesson 6 Triangles
Lesson 7 Circles
Lesson 8 Polygons and Three-Dimensional Geometry
Lesson 9 Counting and Probability
Lesson 10 Number Theory
Lesson 11 Trigonometry and Complex Numbers
Lesson 12 Coordinates and Graphs

I really enjoyed the course! Most of the problems were quite challenging, but I understood them. I really think I got better at problem solving after this course.
