Alex's Mock AMC 8 For AOPS Forum


Song:  Fly Away

Artist:  Lenny Kravitz



ADDENDUM (07-27-17):

 ALEX PUBLISHED THE SOLUTIONS TO THIS EXERCISE
AFTER RECEIVING REQUESTS TO DO SO.

THEY ARE AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS ARTICLE.


A couple of weeks ago...
Alex had made this mock AMC 8 test for an AOPS (Art Of Problem Solving)
forum which he has been participating in for many years now.

AOPS is where many math kids love to visit to challenge each other...
and to discuss math in general...including competition math.

Alex decided to make his own mock exercise to help out the elementary 
and middle school students who are looking to improve their understanding
of competition math through math exercises and tests.


Alex has been busy with his studies...
so, he has yet to complete his advanced math problems for middle schoolers.

He hopes to finish it in the next few weeks.

Alex just made these problems real quickly for fun.

He had three other math kids on the forum double check his answers
before he published this paper for the younger students.

The feedback he had received from the other math forum kids was very positive...
and so, Alex was very happy.

Again...
this is for advanced elementary and middle school math students.




















Alex loves designing tests and teaching others about math.

He is also having fun teaching competition math over this summer (his first professional gig  :)

Part 2 of Part 2: 2nd Week Of Math Camp / Lecture Notes / Student Guide


Song:  Nights In White Satin (Harp Guitar Cover)

Artist:  Jamie Dupuis



This is the last portion of Alex's student guide for his students at math camp.

Once again...
Alex had typed up all of his guides using LaTeX coding and software.

In a week or so...
I will be publishing Alex's more advanced guide on these topics...
which will be more in depth...
and will cover more advanced methods.


Part Two Of Part Two for the second week of math camp:





































Once again...
Alex will be publishing a more advanced guide for a greater understanding of these topics...
in about one week.














Part 1 Of Part 2: 2nd Week Of Math Camp / Lecture Notes / Student Guide


Song:  Rocket Man

Artist:  Elton John


This is the student guide Alex had made for his recent lecture
at the math camp for his middle school students for week number 2.

This is the first part.
I will be publishing the 2nd part of this guide in my next article.

Alex has one more lecture later today.

He will finish off the math camp...
and these topics are what he will have completed by the end of today.

This is the elementary level for these topics.

Alex will also be making another student guide on 
these topics, except it will be more advanced in depth and breadth.

He will make his next student guide on these topics...
in a week or so.

Alex will also be making this last guide available on a website 
so his former students could study on their own over the summer.



We had arrived at the math camp early so Alex could set up his classroom.


Alex wrote a basic overview of this day's lesson on the board...
as the students kept arriving.








As more and more students kept arriving...I departed.

-----------

Alex received his first professional request today.

One of Alex's students at the math camp had really liked Alex's teaching...
and he is interested in competing in math competitions...
specifically...MATHCOUNTS.

The student had probably learned of Alex winning the 2014 Nevada State Championship
for MATHCOUNTS...and so, wishes to learn how to be a strong math competitor
from Alex.

His father contacted Alex by email and wants to hire him over the summer
to be a private math tutor for his son.

Alex felt honored...
and he readily accepted.

He will be starting next week.

Not bad for a 16 year old  :)


----------


Again...
this student guide covers some of Alex's lectures for the second week
of math camp...and it is for a basic understanding of these topics.

In a week or so...
Alex will be putting out a more advanced student guide on these same topics...
which will go more in depth so the students may learn on their own.

I will publish the next guide once Alex completes it in about one week.



































I will publish the 2nd and last part of this particular guide...
in the next article.

And...
once again...
Alex will then be publishing a more advanced guide in a week or so.
