Alex's Mock AMC 8 For AOPS Forum
Song: Fly Away
Artist: Lenny Kravitz
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.
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 :)
