Review:

My kids have been participating in the Purple Comet Math Meet for the past 4 years. As homeschoolers, finding opportunities where they can work together on a team to solve interesting problems was never an option until the Purple Comet came along. The problems themselves are great preparation for AMC contests and cover a wide variety of topics, however, this book starts training the kids to problem solve at the middle school level and guides them all the way to high school level problem solving. Topics like Number Theory and Combinatorics become accessible to a younger generation while exciting their interest in math. We love having so many of these problems together in one book, especially since we missed the earlier competitions. The authors' experience in problem writing is evident by the elegance of the concepts they introduce. We love this book! --David Cordeiro
