Random Math prepares students for the AMC 10/12 competition in a year-round system that maximizes the improvement students obtain during the spring, summer, and fall/winter. In the two months before the competitions, students go through a series of mock tests and review sessions, where they are guided through difficult concepts students need to master for the math competition.
Random Math’s Competitive Program allows students to work on challenging problems to stretch their problem-solving skills with other students at their levels over a year. By working with peers near their level, students can learn new ways to approach tough problems from their coaches and classmates. Random Math’s classrooms encourage students to speak out, ask questions, and share their thoughts to help everyone improve their math proficiency to a new level.
Through the Accelerator Program, students’ progress is consistently tracked and their workload — consisting of the unique set of topics and concepts, types of problems, and types of competitive math skills that each individual needs to improve on — is continuously updated to ensure students are on track to reaching their goals. Each week, students take a mock test tailored by our coaches to fit the specific level’s needs.
Our math problems are divided into four units over the school year and cover all topics tested in AMC 10/12 math: Algebra, Number Theory, Geometry, and Combinatorics. Once students have mastered these four units, they will excel at the AMC 10/12. Random Math closely monitors students’ progress by tracking their scores on mock tests, analyzing every individual’s weakness, and teaching appropriate concepts to help each student overcome their weakness and achieve mastery.
Over 80% of Random Math students have continuously placed among the top 5-10% of the AMC 10/12 math competitions, and that statistic has been increasing by approximately 30 students every year since 2019. Those who place in the honor roll, which comprises the top 2.5-percentile scorers, and the distinguished honor roll, which comprises the top 1-percentile scorers, have continued to perform well in the AIME.
In Fall 2021, 108 out of 125 students who took the competition at Random Math --- 86% --- qualified for the AIME. 48 students were recognized in the Distinguished Honor Roll, the top 1-percentile of all AMC 10/12 competitors, and 84 students were recognized in the Honor Roll, the top 5-percentile of all AMC 10/12 participants.

The Random Math curriculum prepares students for the AMC 10/12 competition on a year-round basis, allowing students to build up their mathematical proficiency and critical thinking skills for optimal achievement in the contests.
However, elite students choose to optimize their time in the summer to leapfrog their mathematical skill levels.
Random Math’s various Summer Programs ensure that students make the most of their time by placing students in small groups of peers with similar mathematical proficiency levels and guiding them through intense lecture sessions, mock tests, and challenging problems from prestigious national and international math contests to stretch their problem-solving skills.
The Competitive Summer curriculum at Random Math is a compact but similar version of its Competitive curriculum that runs over an entire year. Students are placed in levels 3 to 7 based on their mathematical skill level and goals for the upcoming school year, and the summer is divided into four camps, each focusing on a topic fundamental to AMC 10/12 and other high-school level math competitions: Number Theory, Algebra, Geometry, and Counting and Probability.

The AMC 10/12 are among the largest high school-level math competitions in the U.S. Both are taken individually, but several high school tournaments have both individual and team rounds.
The Harvard-MIT Math Tournament (HMMT), open to students grade 12 and below, is among the most prestigious high school level tournaments drawing close to 1000 contestants around the globe. High school tournaments like the HMMT provide insight into what a future in math may look like for students. It includes an individual round, a team round, and the guts round, where students work together to solve questions on an assortment of subjects. In 2022, the Random Math Team placed 2nd in the Guts Round, 4th in the Overall Sweepstakes, and Top 7 in the Team Round. One Random Math student placed 1st overall. For more information about HMMT, please see our page: https://www.randommath.com/tournaments/hmmt.
The Berkeley Math Tournament (BMT) is another well-known high-school mathematics competition. It takes place over two days and consists of one individual round, three team rounds, and a tiebreaker round. In 2021, 7 Random Math students placed in the top 10 individual awards, and 13 students placed in the Distinguished Honor Roll, the top 20 percentile of all competitors. Two Random Math Teams placed in the top 4 for team awards, and Random Math took home 1st place in Team Overall.

Other popular high school level math competitions include the Stanford Math Tournament, Caltech Harvey Mudd Math Competition, Carnegie Mellon Informatics and Mathematics Competition, Princeton University Mathematics Competition, and Math Majors of America Tournament for High Schools, hosted by Yale University.
