In Math Challenge II-B, students learn and practice in areas such as algebra and geometry at the high school level, as well as advanced number theory and combinatorics. Topics include polynomials, inequalities, special algebraic techniques, trigonometry, triangles and polygons, collinearity and concurrency, vectors and coordinates, numbers and divisibility, modular arithmetic, residue classes, advanced counting strategies, binomial coefficients, pigeonhole principle, sequence and series, and various other topics and problem solving techniques involved in math contests such as the American Mathematics Competition (AMC) 10/12, ARML, and also beginning AIME.
This course meets Saturdays 10:45 AM-12:15 PM Pacific (1:45-3:15 PM Eastern). For the specific dates of the course please see the full course schedule by clicking here. This course can also be taken as a self-paced course by clicking here.
