Richard Yang and Catherine Xu are teaching a class focusing on AMC 10 and AIME prep! Our suggested prerequisite is Algebra I/Geometry. If you’re interested, please fill out this form.

Meetings will be at MERGE, 136 S. Dubuque Street in downtown Iowa City, by the library. Instructors will guide you to the right room.

Not at this level yet? Check out our beginner’s sessions!

This class is held right after our coding sessions, in the same room. Feel free to participate in both!
