amcmedalThe AMC 10A/12A is on February 4th and the AMC 10B/12B is on February 19th.  If you’d like a chance to learn some interesting tips and techniques to help with these competitions, then please join us for this enlightening Math Circle.  Adrian Andreescu, Vinjai Vale, and Dr. Titu Andreescu will be presenting problems to challenge and delight.

If you have yet to sign up for these tests and your school does not offer them, there is still room for both dates (these testing sites are not sponsored by Metroplex Math Circle).  Registration will be held outside the math circle room, ECSS 2.201.

AMYlogoJust because the summer camp season is behind us for this year doesn’t mean you can’t still work with our AwesomeFaculty on interesting problems.  AwesomeMath Year-Round gives students the chance to continue developing their insights and delve into important mathematical concepts and methods of proofs for problems and challenges that range to the Olympiad level.  Our website describes the program as follows:

“The AMY is broken into six independent segments, each investigating one circle of ideas in depth. Every two months, students receive a packet of materials organized around a set of notes which comprise a short course in the topic. The courses cover each topic from the very basics all the way to fascinating and difficult results; we believe that everyone has something to learn! The notes will be accompanied by scores of problems, running the gamut from simple to quite hard. Students are expected to write up solutions so that we may provide individual feedback and teach the invaluable skill of proof-writing.”
The 2013-2014 segment topics have been posted:

Segment Author Topic
Aug. – Sept. 2013 Titu Andreescu and Cosmin Pohoata Gems in Euclidean Geometry
Oct. – Nov. Titu Andreescu and Cosmin Pohoata Harmonic Divisions Revisited
Dec. 2013 – Jan. 2014 Titu Andreescu and Adithya Ganesh Gems in Algebra
Feb. – Mar. Cosmin Pohoata Topics in Combinatorial Geometry
Apr. – May Titu Andreescu Gems in Number Theory
June – July Titu Andreescu and Adithya Ganesh Sums and Products

Register today for this unique opportunity to work with qualified instructors on Olympiad level math with individualized feedback.

“We believe that Olympiad math is naturally focused on ideas accessible to young people while at the same time provoking boundless intellectual challenges. Olympiad math helps students build creative logical thought, a skill that will be a great asset to them no matter what they choose to do in the future.” ~Dr. Titu Andreescu

imagesThis next meeting will be our last before the holiday break at UTD and the end of the Fall semester.  Students preparing for the 2013 AMC 10 and 12 will not want to miss this session when Dr. Andreescu share some of his favorite problems and approaches for solving them.

All students should make a serious effort to register and prepare for the AMC 10 or 12 exam.  There is no limitation on how young a student can participate and no restriction on how many years you take the exam until you reach 10th and 12th grades respectively.  The AMC results are requested by many elite colleges to differentiate among the many applications they see with 800 SAT scores.

Here is some additional information about this year’s AMC 12:

The AMC 12 is a 25 question, 75 minute multiple choice examination in secondary school mathematics containing problems which can be understood and solved with pre-calculus concepts. Calculators are not allowed starting in 2008. For the 2012-2013 school year there will be two dates on which the contest may be taken: AMC 12A on Tuesday, February 5, 2013 , and AMC 12B on Wednesday, February 20, 2013 .

On October 20th Dr. Titu Andreescu spoke to the Metroplex Math Circle at UT Dallas and shared a number of interesting problems.  The video below will give people some sense of what a math circle session can be.  We are still experimenting with our video and streaming technology so we appreciate your patience and are grateful for your tips to improve the quality of these videos which will be posted to our YouTube channel.

Please note that every Metroplex Math Circle speaker is encouraged to choose the topic and format that best suits their style and passions.  This means that every session is somewhat different and you are encouraged to read the description of each session posted here or on our FaceBook and Google+ pages when you make your decision to attend.
