MathCON 2023 Summer Camp
AMC 8, AMC 10-12 Summer Camp organized by MathCON is an intensive 5+1 Days program designed for mathematically talented 8th Grade and high school students who have registered in our MathCON Online 1st Round.
The program aims to expose these bright students to advanced math topics, new ways of thinking, and elegant ideas. It also allows them to develop a deeper understanding of math through focused study of number theory, problem-solving, algebraic expression, geometry, and combinatorics.
This year’s AMC 8, AMC 10-12 Summer Camp, organized by MathCON, will take place from June 5th to June 10th at Chicago’s Loyola University! This opportunity is open to students entering grades 8 through 11 in Fall 2023.
HOW TO APPLY
Please complete the application if you are interested in your student(s) joining our MathCON Summer Camp at Chicago’s Loyola University Water Tower Campus between Monday, June 5, and Saturday, June 10. 24 students will be selected to join us for this amazing opportunity, so please submit your application as soon as possible!
The MathCON organization committee will evaluate your application and respond to you by May 26, 2023.
More Information on AMC & IMO:
MathCON Summer Camp allows students to explore high school, undergraduate, and even graduate-level math topics while developing problem-solving skills applicable to any field of study.
The camp also aims to prepare students for the American Mathematics Competitions (AMC), which is the first in a series of competitions that determine the United States team for the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO).
The selection process for the IMO takes place over roughly four stages, with the final stage being the Mathematical Olympiad Summer Program (MOP), where six members are selected to form the IMO team.
There are three levels in the AMC competition:
- AMC 8 for students under the age of 14.5 and in grades eight and below,
- AMC 10 for students under the age of 17.5 and in grades ten and below, and
- AMC 12 is for students under 19.5 and in grades 11 and below.
Students who perform well in the AMC 10 or AMC 12 competitions may be invited to participate in the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME), and those who excel in the AIME may be invited to the United States of America Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO) or the United States of America Junior Mathematical Olympiad (USAJMO). Exceptional performers on the USAMO, typically around 30 students, are invited to attend the Mathematical Olympiad Summer Program (MOSP or MOP), and the top six scorers on the USAMO are selected from the top twelve scorers in the Team Selection Test (TST) to form the United States International Math Olympiad Team.
