Math Challenge I-B
Students learn math skills at a deeper level with topics in beginning algebra, fundamental geometry, basic number theory, and counting strategies. The students not only learn practical skills of challenging problem solving that are supplemental to their school curricula, but also develop skills in creative thinking, logical reasoning, oral and written presentation, and team work. This course helps 6th to 8th graders to participate in the American Mathematics Competition (AMC) 8, MathCounts and Math Olympiads for Elementary and Middle School MOEMS. Through the effective guidance and direction by our experienced teachers, students develop strong problem solving skills that make them perform well in those contests.
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).
Math Challenge I-B 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.
This course has two sections.
