This year our Math Club members are really intent on training for the AMC. They want someone in our school to break a score of 100 to move onwards to take the AIME.
Here’s the deal.
I want to help the leaders of math club find a way to do this. I don’t know how. We only meet for 25 minutes a week.
Is anyone out there a leader of a math club, that “trains” students for these types of contests? How do you do it? Literally, I’m asking for how you structure a meeting, and what kids are doing, and what you are doing during that meeting.
Also, if you as a math club adviser have any websites or books that you find invaluable, that would also be of great help.
PS. One of my favorite math competitions from when I was in high school was the USAMTS. It’s a mail in math contest with 4 rounds, and amazingly wonderfully frustratingly challenging problems. So if you don’t know about it, and you have a super talented math star in your school, I’d check it out and (if you like it) share.
