☆☆☆ ONSITE / ONLINE LIVE CAMP REGISTRATION IS OPEN ☆☆☆
AlphaStar Math Program trains students towards prestigious Math competitions such as MathCounts, American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) 8/10/12, American Invitational Math Exam (AIME), and USA Math Olympiads (USA(J)MO). Our curriculum is aligned with the curriculum of these competitions. Students are guided and trained by an expert faculty via utilizing national and international competitions in a fun and challenging environment.
AlphaStar Summer Online Math Camp is a unique opportunity for interested and talented students to improve their math fundamentals, problem-solving skills, and boost their exam performance during Summer.
The lectures are recorded. Live class students can access the recorded lecture video in their course accounts within a few days after each live class session. Self-study class students will have access to recorded sessions from a past live class.
Three types of courses will be offered during the camp.
Fundamental Courses (Algebra, Counting, Geometry, and Number Theory)
An opportunity for students to improve their Math levels and problem-solving skills in four fundamental areas: Algebra, Counting, Geometry, and Number Theory.
Online live and self-study classes offer these classes separately while Onsite camp offers it as a four-class bundle.
These are the same courses as the ones offered in other seasons, Fall and Spring. Please click below to find objectives along with sample problems:
During the classes, the Instructor will teach the Lecture Notes, solve Example Problems, and review some of the Exercise (HW) Problems. For each Chapter, students are encouraged to work an additional 1 hour to review the material and work on the Exercise (HW) and Quiz problems, preferably on a regular basis when the material is taught fresh. However, there is no deadline for HW and Quizzes, hence the students can take and submit them whenever they want during the 1 year time after the course enrollment.
