Prealgebra

Academic Year Mathematics

Prealgebra begins by formalizing the rules of arithmetic that students learned in elementary school, building on a rigorous foundation as they move into algebra. We then survey a wide range of topics, including number theory, algebra, geometry, counting, statistics, and probability. Each topic is introduced with compelling problems, including many drawn from major national math contests such as MATHCOUNTS and AMC 8. We place special emphasis on challenging word problems throughout the course.

Homework and exams:

Students should expect to spend 1-3 hours on homework every week. Homework will be assigned and completed through the class website, where students receive immediate feedback on their work. Students will take three in-class exams throughout the course.

Textbook:

The textbook for the course is Prealgebra by Art of Problem Solving.

Hardcopy and temporary access to the online version of the textbook are included in the tuition and fees of this course.
