This coming semester, in addition to hosting the AMC 10, we are going to host the Purple Comet Math Meet for middle school students in April. This competition is formatted a little differently from the AMC in that students form into teams of up to six. We plan on having several prep sessions to help students get used to working on problems with their group, as well as to work on general problem-solving skills. The exact competition date is flexible, and will be determined based on team availability.
We will hold three preparatory sessions at Bard on the following dates. These sessions will help acquaint students with Purple Comet style questions, general problem solving techniques, and will get them used to solving problems in a group. Attendance at these sessions is strongly recommended.
Sunday, February 9th at 1:00 PM
Sunday, March 2nd at 1:00 PM
Sunday, March 16th at 1:00 PM
The February session will also serve to introduce students to their teams and to fix a date for the actual meet.
