### MAS-8 **(Answer Sheet ****|**** ****Register)**

MAS-8 is a program designed for mathematically gifted students in 8th grade and under preparing for AMC8. A typical week, split into 2-3 sessions, includes one 38-minute in-class test, and discussions about the problems selected from the previously conducted in-class test(s). Homework typically involves re-doing the recent in-class test w/o time limit, and rework on the selected problems of the recent in-class test.

### MAS-O

MAS-O is a program designed for mathematically gifted students in 8th grade and under preparing for MOEMS. A typical session includes 20-30 minutes working on a 5-problem set from MOEMS Middle School Division, and the rest 20-30 minutes discussing two to three selected problems from the set. MAS-O does not include homework or report of class statistics and student performance.

### MAS-P

MAS-A is a program designed for mathematically gifted students in 8th grade and under seeking more challenging problems than traditional school math. This is an introductory program for mathematical proof. Geometry, algebra and discrete math (e.g., combinatorics and graph theory) are included as applications.

### MAS-F

MAS-F is a program designed for mathematically gifted students in 6th grade and under seeking more challenging problems than traditional school math. The aim is to build a strong foundation for their mathematical problem solving skills. A typical session includes 20-30 minutes working on a selected set of problems, and the rest 20-30 minutes discussing a problem solving strategy. MAS-F does not include homework or report of class statistics and student performance. Schedule by week: 1. Coins; 2. Tables; 3-4. Pictures; 5-6. Patterns; 7-8. Backwards.

### MAS-A

MAS-A is a program designed for mathematically gifted students in 8th grade and under seeking more challenging problems than traditional school math. The aim is to build a strong foundation in arithmetic. The program emphasizes four basic operations, logic, reasoning, and proof by contradiction through solving arithmetic puzzles, such as alphametics and 24 puzzles.
