Course Concept

The American Math Competition (AMC) is the first of a series of examinations in high school mathematics for the USA that determines each country’s best students and serves as the first stage of International Mathematics Olympiad. Conducted by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), this exam is taken by thousands of students worldwide and is a test of students’ critical thinking, problem-solving and computational skills.

The course follows a module-based approach that will cover each topic area included in this exam and introduce students to the relevant theory, practice problems, homework, and regular mock tests. It will involve rigorous teaching as well as testing being conducted simultaneously.

Our AMC courses are planned to benefit students greatly and our students have secured laurels every year by attaining the top percentiles, globally. The kind of mathematics and problem-solving skills learnt in this course would supplement students in their high school math curriculum as well as help them take the University of Waterloo’s Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing (CEMC) exams. Getting an honorary distinction at level 1 or 2 in AMC, along with other international Math examinations is highly acknowledged by university admissions officers.

The courses will be equally suitable for students from national as well as international curriculum schools.

    Dhirubhai Ambani International School, Mumbai, Currently IB Higher Level Math student of Year 12, AMC-12, 2019-20. Qualified for AIME in 2020.

    Regular testing and practice are key for clearing the AMC and the teachers made sure to target that. Learning how to strategize attempting the paper and focus on selected topics helped in gaining a well-rounded view of the exam.

    Arjun Pawar

    Dhirubhai Ambani International School, Mumbai, Currently IB Higher Level Math student of Year 12, AMC-12, 2019-20, Qualified for AIME in 2020.

    CourseLeap has been one of my best academic experiences. It has improved not only my math but also my analytical and logical thinking skills. The course prepares you to take not only the AMC but equips you to participate in other competitive examinations as well. I highly recommend it for its hands on teaching and immense focus on building concepts.

    Shiv Kampani

    Dhirubhai Ambani International School, Mumbai, AMC 10 & 12 for 2018, 2019, 2020. Qualified for AIME in 2020.

    The AMC-12 course has helped me overcome some of my flaws not only in math, but also in life like being more patient and thinking before answering. I also got to see the proofs for many stated formulae/facts that helped solve other problems. I learnt to think out of the box and get a reason for every explanation, making it easier to remember them. Different strategies taught to us for improving test- taking abilities were great.

    Sannat Bhasin

    Former IB Higher Level Math student at JamnaBai Narsee International School, Mumbai, joined CourseLeap for AMC-12 Course Year 2017-18. He is now pursuing a degree in Computer Science at the University of Toronto since August 2019. He got a distinction in the University of Waterloo conducted CEMC Contest of FERMAT. He also got a silver medal at the infinity challenge at the ABWA (Aditya Birla World Academy) in the year 2019. He credits this achievement to his AMC prep course.

    The course was very well organized and the classes were well executed. The concepts and skills I learnt here are transferable to various fields like Physics and Computer Science and Problem Solving in general.

    Riyaan Bakhda

    Former IB Higher Level Math student of Year 12, at Dhirubhai Ambani International School, Mumbai, joined CourseLeap AMC Courses in the Year 2017-18. (Riyaan was awarded an Honours Roll for AMC 10. Honours Roll students are the top 5% internationally and cleared for AIME, American Invitational Math Examinations, the qualifying criteria for which is to be in the top 2.5 percentile in the world. He was invited to take part in the Math Fest AMC, Conference in Cincinnati in July 2019). He is currently studying Computer Science & Maths at the University of Columbia from 2020.

    The AMC-12 Course introduced more challenging questions than school math and taught me problem-solving techniques that I have not and probably will not learn in school. The support and follow up was excellent and ensured that I did my homework and stayed on track.

    Aarushi Majumder

    Former Higher Level IB Math student at Dhirubhai Ambani International School, Mumbai, joined CourseLeap for Pre-IB Math Course, SAT and History online courses and AMC-12 Course in the Year 2017- 18. Aarushi finished in the top 2.5% and reached level 2, and was invited to take part in AIME (American Invitational Math Exam) in 2018. Aarushi is a peer mentor to our students at CourseLeap and has been studying at Stanford University since September 2019.

    I think that the AMC-8 prep course at CourseLeap really helped me understand math beyond just learning formulas and doing the same type of sums over and over again. There were no 2 sums alike, and there were various ways we could solve a sum. As an ICSE student, we usually do math straight from the textbook and don’t really do anything challenging. I think this opened up my mind on how to use math in different situations.

    Soha Aggarwal

    The Cathedral and John Connon School, Mumbai, ICSE, AMC 8, 2020

    In the AMC-8 Prep Course we learnt new techniques and methods to solve problems efficiently and well. What I liked best about the course was how interactive it was. I never had a single doubt unanswered and I think that is what made it unique. The homework was always enough and well-compiled.

    Abhimanyu Singh

    rade 7, Oberoi International School, Mumbai, MYP, AMC 8, 2020

    The thing I liked most about the AMC 8 course was the fact that I learned so many new topics and now ahead of my classmates in some of the topics in school.

    AMC 10

    The course was very helpful to assess my learnings in mathematics. I learned about the structure and syllabus of the AMC 10 and the topics that will be covered in the test. The classes were really fun, followed up with homework, tutorials, and doubt sessions to make sure we internalized everything. The teachers helped me improve my problem-solving skills and were always approachable.

    It was a very well constructed course that demands motivation and commitment to the subject. However it also helps enable it through its two class per week structure. Would thoroughly recommend for any competition math.
