Mathcounts Intermediate (AoPS Counting & Probability)


The Study Huddle uses academic competitions as a way to get students started on an unbounded quest of knowledge. Students will learn to persevere and tackle intellectual challenges by developing their foundational understanding in place of rote learning.

Course Goal

The goal of this 12 week course is to give students an introduction to the problem solving strategies required to succeed in the Mathcounts competitions at the school and chapter levels. In a collaborative platform with guidance from the coaches, students will share their ideas, challenge their own understanding of several mathematical concepts, and learn from the experience. 

Topics Covered

Intermediate classes are meant for students who have participated in middle school math competitions and making a journey to the advanced level. Students will practice roughly 360 relatively hard problems from current/previous years Mathcounts handbooks and take away strategies used in these problems. In addition, students will complete questions from previous Mathcounts chapter & some state level competitions and continue to cover important competition topics in depth. These include

  • General problem solving strategies & Numerical Fluency
  • Proportions & Solving Equations 
  • Radicals, Quadratics
  • Right triangles and Circles
  • Counting strategies
  • Probability
  • Number Theory – Advanced LCM / GCF
  • Using Coordinate Geometry in solving problems
  • Sequences & Series 
  • Functions

After this class students are recommended to enroll in 12-week long Math Circle Intermediate
