Math Challenge I-C Guided Study Groups
This four part course is designed to bridge the gap between the AMC 8 and the AMC 10 and prepare students for high school math competitions including the AMC 10/12, ARML, and ZIML. The four term course covers topics and introductory problem solving in algebra, geometry, and finite math. Algebraic topics include linear equations, systems of equations and inequalities, exponents and radicals, factoring polynomials, and solving quadratic equations. Geometric topics include angles in triangles, quadrilaterals, and polygons, congruent and similar polygons, calculating area, and algebraic geometry. Topics in finite math include logic, introductory number theory, and an introduction to probability and statistics. These topics serve as the fundamental knowledge needed for a more advanced problem solving course such as Math Challenge II-A.
Each Guided Study group will follow the Math Challenge I-C 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.
Guided Study Groups are available for Math Challenge I-C in four different subjects:
- Topics in Algebra
- Finite Math (including topics in Counting & Probability and Number Theory)
We recommend that students take all four terms in order, but a student who has already taken Algebra 1 should have the background necessary to take any of Topics in Algebra, Geometry, and Finite Math in any order 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.
