Written for the gifted math student, the new math coach, the teacher in search of problems and materials to challenge exceptional students, or anyone else interested in advanced mathematical problems. Competition Math contains over 700 examples and problems in the areas of Algebra, Counting, Probability, Number Theory, and Geometry.Examples and full solutions present clear concepts and provide helpful tips and tricks."I wish I had a book like this when I started my competition career."Four-Time National Champion MATHCOUNTS coach Jeff Boyd"This book is full of juicy questions and ideas that will enable the reader to excel in MATHCOUNTS and AMC competitions. I recommend it to any students who aspire to be great problem solvers." Former AHSME Committee Chairman Harold Reiter

The 39 self-contained sections in this book present worked-out examples as well as many sample problems categorized by the level of difficulty as Bronze, Silver, and Gold in order to help the readers gauge their progress and learning. Detailed solutions to all problems in each section are provided at the end of each chapter. The book can be used not only as a text but also for self-study. The text covers algebra (solving single equations and systems of equations of varying degrees, algebraic manipulations for creative problem solving, inequalities, basic set theory, sequences and series, rates and proportions, unit analysis, and percentages), probability (counting techniques, introductory probability theory, more set theory, permutations and combinations, expected value, and symmetry), and number theory (prime factorizations and their applications, Diophantine equations, number bases, modular arithmetic, and divisibility). It focuses on guiding students through creative problem-solving and on teaching them to apply their knowledge in a wide variety of scenarios rather than rote memorization of mathematical facts. It is aimed at, but not limited to, high-performing middle school students and goes further in depth and teaches new concepts not otherwise taught in traditional public schools.

That you are looking at this book is a proof that inside you is working a math genius who dreads at the thought of doing tons of repetitions of the same problem with just numbers changed - You are looking at the right book!This book presents 109 problems categorized into 7 chapters, each chapter corresponding to a major topic. These problems can be solved using the fundamental concepts learned in the middle school.

For forty years the Intermediate Math League of Eastern Massachusetts (IMLEM) has challenged students to aim higher than standard math courses and build a deeper understanding. This book is for students who take up this challenge.The topics align with modern middle school curricula: fractions, decimals, percents, prime factorization, plane and spatial geometry, probability, statistics, Venn diagrams, combinatorics, modular arithmetic, algebra. But Hard Math asks much harder questions. For example, rather than asking how to write 2/5 as a decimal, it asks students how to use 99999 = 9 41 271 to find the tenth digit in the decimal for 1/271. And it teaches the material and problem-solving strategies needed to solve them. The book is organized to serve IMLEM students and coaches: each chapter covers material for a given contest. But it can also be enrichment for anyone who wishes his or her math class were harder and preparation for other middle school math contests.Most students (basically everyone except students in MA schools that participate in IMLEM but not in Mathcounts) would prefer the newer "IMLEM Plus" edition with a purple cover rather than the blue-covered edition listed here. The newer purple version has an additional chapter covering extra material that students who aspire to do well in Mathcounts will want to know.

The New Mexico Mathematics Contest for high-school students has been held annually since 1966. Each November, thousands of middle- and high-school students from all over New Mexico converge to battle with elementary but tricky math problems. The 200 highest-scoring students meet for the second round the following February at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque where they listen to a prominent mathematician give a keynote lecture, have lunch, and then get down to round two, an even more challenging set of mathematical mind-twisters. Liong-shin Hahn was charged with the task of creating a new set of problems each year for the New Mexico Mathematics Contest, 1990-1999. In this volume, Hahn has collected the 138 best problems to appear in these contests over the last decades. They range from the simple to the highly challenging--none are trivial. The solutions contain many clever analyses and often display uncommon ingenuity. His questions are always interesting and relevant to teenage contestants. Young people training for competitions will not only learn a great deal of useful mathematics from this book but, and this is much more important, they will take a step toward learning to love mathematics.

This book contains the curriculum materials of the Math Challenge courses at Areteem Institute. The math competitions for middle and high school students generally do not involve college mathematics such as calculus and linear algebra. There are four main topics covered in the competitions: Number Theory, Algebra, Geometry, and Combinatorics. The problems in the math competitions are usually challenging problems for which conventional methods are not sufficient, and students are required to use more creative ways to combine the methods they have learned to solve these problems. The companion book, "Cracking the High School Math Competitions," covers these topics, along with fundamental concepts required and problem solving strategies useful for solving problems in the math competitions such as AMC 10 & 12, ARML, and ZIML Division JV. This book provides complete solutions to the problems in the aforementioned book. For information about Areteem Institute, visit http: //www.areteem.org.

"In 2000, the Mathematical Association of America initiated the American Mathematics Competitions 10 (AMC 10) for students up to grade 10. The Contest Problem Book VIII is the first collection of problems from that competition, covering the years 2000-2007. J. Douglas Faires and David Wells were the joint directors of the AMC 10 and AMC 12 during that period, and have assembled this book of problems and solutions." "There are 350 problems from the first 14 contests included in this collection. A Problem Index at the back of the book classifies the problems into the following major subject areas: Algebra and Arithmetic, Sequences and Series, Triangle Geometry, Circle Geometry, Quadrilateral Geometry, Polygon Geometry, Coordinate Geometry, Solid Geometry, Counting, Discrete Probability, Statistics, Number Theory, and Logic. The major subject areas are then broken down into subcategories for ease of reference. The problems are cross-referenced when they represent several subject areas."--BOOK JACKET.

Does your child: • Have impressive intellectual abilities but seem puzzled by ordinary interactions with other children? • Have deep, all-absorbing interests or seemingly encyclopedic knowledge of certain subjects? • Bring home mediocre report cards, or seem disengaged at school, despite his or her obvious intelligence? If you answered "yes" to these questions, this book is for you. Author Katharine Beals uses the term "left-brain" to describe a type of child whose talents and inclinations lean heavily toward the logical, linear, analytical, and introverted side of the human psyche, as opposed to the "right brain," a term often associated with our emotional, holistic, intuitive, and extroverted side. Drawing on her research and interviews with parents and children, Beals helps parents to discover if they are raising a left-brain child, and she offers practical strategies for nurturing and supporting this type of child at school and at home. Beals also advises parents in how best to advocate for their children in today’s schools, which can be baffled by and unsupportive of left-brain learning styles.
