American Mathematics Competition (AMC)

Nature is written in mathematical language.

—By Galileo Galilei

Course Features

Problem-solving skills

Students will thoroughly examine the latest questions and concepts from the competition, and our teachers will also share tips, hints, and exam strategies with the students.

Creative thinking

Students will be prompt to look at a problem from different angles hence to practice solving one question with multiple solutions.

Make your college application stand out

An SAT score will not be sufficient for one to get into the Ivy Leagues or other top US colleges. A good AMC score can demonstrate one’s academic excellence, which can leave a good impression on college applications.
