Advanced Mathcounts

This class is designed to further broaden the concepts taught in the original AMC 8/Mathcounts class. Advanced concepts in algebra, geometry, counting and number theory will be taught with fun activities such as mock competitions and games like Kahoot. Weekly homework will be given to reinforce concepts, and completion is strongly encouraged. At the end of the class, students will be able to both excel at the state level of Mathcounts as well as the AMC 8. This class is recommended for students that have scored above 15 on the AMC 8.

I am Julia Zhao, a 9th grader at Gunn High School. I enjoy solving math problems and working with other kids. It is fun to be an active part of a classroom and I look forward to helping students again. In my own time, I play badminton competitively; reading and cooking are my favorite leisure activities.
