# Math Challenge I-A and I-B Guided Study Groups

### Course Description

Math Challenge I-A and Math Challenge I-B are introductory level courses for 6-8 grade students who have limited experience with in-depth problem solving and math competitions. Students learn skills to apply the concepts they learn in school math classes into problem solving. Content includes pre-algebra, beginning algebra, fundamental geometry, basic number theory concepts and counting and probability. Students develop skills in creative thinking, logical reasoning, analytical and problem solving skills. Students are exposed to beginning contests such as AMC 8, MathCounts and Math Olympiads for Elementary and Middle School MOEMS.

Each Guided Study group will follow the Math Challenge I-B course textbook:

The eBook is included in the tuition of the course. See the Registration and Tuition information below for more information of how Areteem Instructors supervise students as part of a Guided Study Group.

### Course Terms

Guided Study Groups are available for Math Challenge I-A + I-B in four different subjects:

- Pre-Algebra and Word Problems
- Geometry
- Counting & Probability
- 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.

**Each Guided Study Group may require 6+ hours of study each week.** Advanced and motivated students can take multiple subjects at the same time, but only in special cases do we recommend enrollment in 3 or more Guided Study Groups at the same time.
