Hey, math whizzes out there, I'm looking for some harder math problems to challenge myself with. Can anyone recommend some resources or give examples? I'm aiming to improve my problem-solving skills for the SAT Math section.

There are numerous resources for difficult math problems that could align with the rigor of the SAT Test. A good starting point would be College Board's website itself. They release a significant amount of practice tests and problems for the SATs. These are structured similarly to the actual test and would definitely be handy for understanding the structure and pattern of questions.

The Art of Problem Solving (AoPS) is another great resource for advanced math problems. Their books and online platform cater to students aiming to challenge themselves in math at different levels - elementary, middle, and high school level. Be sure to check their "Introduction" and "Intermediate" series for Algebra, Geometry, and other subjects. They also have a forum where advanced math learners gather to discuss problems.

Another recommendation is the Brilliant website and app. They provide fascinating and difficult math problems aimed at fostering logical thinking and problem-solving abilities. Problems are submitted by a large community of mathematicians, educators, and math enthusiasts.

Moreover, consider participating in math contests like the AMC, AIME, or Math Olympiad. These competitions provide problems that are significantly harder than your standard high school curriculum and can really challenge and significantly improve your problem-solving skills.

Finally, while tackling these problems, you should also follow a structured approach and note down strategies for each problem type. This will align with your goal - practicing for the SAT Math section. This is important because SAT adheres to a specific format where certain types of questions are often asked. Being able to recognize and address these types faster will significantly boost your score.

Remember: The key is consistent practice. Good luck and happy problem solving!
