Math Challenge II-A

Course Description

Math Challenge II-A is for students who are preparing for the AMC 10 contest. Students are required to have fundamental knowledge in Algebra I, Geometry, Basic Number Theory and Counting and Probability up to the 10th grade level. Topics include polynomials, inequalities, special algebraic techniques, triangles and polygons, collinearity and concurrency, vectors and coordinates, numbers and divisibility, modular arithmetic, advanced counting strategies, binomial coefficients, sequence and series, and various other topics and problem solving techniques involved in math contests such as the AMC 10, advanced MathCounts, ARML, and ZIML.

The textbook is available in print on our online bookstore (click here) or eBook on redshelf.com (click here).

Course Terms

Math Challenge II-A is offered in four terms:

  • Summer, covering Algebra
  • Fall, covering Geometry
  • Winter, covering Combinatorics
  • 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 meets Wednesdays 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.
