This course provides the necessary background in number theory for students preparing for the AMC 8 math competition. Students learn tips and tricks for solving number theory problems and expand their logical reasoning. In-depth problem solving trains students to efficiently solve complex questions and minimize mistakes. These skills not only help students stand out among their peers during the AMC 8 competition, but lead to success in school and on standardized tests (placement tests, SAT, etc.). Students build a strong foundation and love of mathematics that leads them to academic success throughout their life.
