Good job to all those who qualified for an olympiad this year and all those who reached their AMC goals or improved from last year.

Remember not to take contest scores as a measure of your self worth, and remember that contest scores do not always reflect your improvement.

Huge shoutout to Sid and Vincent for preparing so hard for the olympiads that they can solve and write up solutions to olympiad problems better than anyone else in the Advanced class!

2021 Fall AMC 10/12 thoughts

Overall, the 10A and 10B were quite hard. The 12A was a bit more straightforward, but the 12B was not as straightforward. My perspective is skewed, so take what I say with a grain of salt.

I expect the 10A/10B cutoffs to be a bit lower than last year. The 12’s, I’m not sure.

It would be nice if the tests were a bit easier. Right now, they are a bit discouraging except to the most diligent of students. This discourages people from retaking the tests, which makes the 2.5% or 5% cutoffs harder each year, as only newcomers and veterans continue with the tests.

New School Year

The New School year is starting for many of you.

Some changes to the schedule:

Advanced A is now Mondays 7pm CST

Intro B is now Tuesday 7pm CST.

If you know anyone who may be interested in my lessons, please do help me spread the word. Any help in expanding my student base is appreciated!

If you found my lessons helpful, maybe some of your friends will too. Remember that math is very collaborative, and more ideas in class is always better.

Also, the world is better off with more people better educated in math.
