# Math Challenge I-A

### Course Description

Math Challenge I-A is an introductory level course for 6-8 grade students who have little or no experience in in-depth problem solving nor math competitions. Students learn skills to apply the concepts they learn in school math classes into problem solving. Content includes pre-algebra, fundamental geometry, counting and probability, and basic number theory. Students develop skills in creative thinking, logical reasoning, analytical and problem solving skills. Students are exposed to beginning contests such as AMC 8, MathCounts, Math Olympiads for Elementary and Middle School (MOEMS), and Zoom International Math League (ZIML) Division M.

### Course Textbooks

Each term requires the course textbook:

The textbook is available in print (for \$25 each) on our online bookstore (click here) or eBook (rental starting at \$10 each) on redshelf.com (click here).

### Course Terms

Math Challenge I-A is offered in four terms:

- Summer, covering Pre-Algebra and Word Problems
- Fall, covering Geometry
- Winter, covering Counting & Probability
- Spring, covering Number Theory

We recommend that students take all four terms, but the terms do not build on previous terms, so they do not need to be taken in order and students can take single terms if they want to focus on specific topics. For more information about the topics covered each term, please click here.

### Course Meetings

This course typically meets Tuesdays 4:30-6:00 PM Pacific (7:30-9:00 PM Eastern). For the specific dates of the course please see the individual courses below or the full course schedule by clicking here.
