First Steps for Math Olympians: Using the American Mathematics Competitions
by J. Douglas Faires
A major aspect of mathematical training and its benefit to society is the ability to use logic to solve problems. The American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) have been given for more than 50 years to millions of high school students. This book considers the basic ideas behind the solutions to the majority of these problems, and presents examples and exercises from past exams to illustrate the concepts. Anyone taking the AMC exams or helping students prepare for them will find many useful ideas here. This book will promote interest in mathematics by providing students with the tools to attack problems that occur on mathematical problemsolving exams, and specifically to level the playing field for those who do not have access to the enrichment programs that are common at the top academic high schools. The book can be used either for selfstudy or to give people who want to help students prepare for mathematics exams easy access to topicoriented material and samples of problems based on that material. This is useful for teachers who want to hold special sessions for students, but it is equally valuable for parents who have children with mathematical interest and ability.
