Prealgebra - AoPS Academy Fremont Campus

Prealgebra

Academic Year Mathematics

We start Prealgebra by formalizing the rules of arithmetic that students learned in elementary school, so they can build on a rigorous foundation as they move into algebra. We then survey a wide range of topics, including number theory, algebra, geometry, counting, statistics, and probability. We introduce each topic with compelling problems, many of which are drawn from major national math contests such as MATHCOUNTS and the AMC 8. We place special emphasis on challenging word problems throughout the course.

Students completing Prealgebra are ready to move on to a more in-depth study of algebra and discrete math in our Algebra 1 course.

Textbook: Prealgebra by Art of Problem Solving.

Hardcopy and online version of the textbook are included in the tuition and fees of this course.

Sample Problems

Below are examples of some of the types of problems that students will encounter in our Prealgebra course.
"AoPS Academy is such a valuable resource for my two daughters and our family.  We kept hitting brick walls with our former school and the Director of AoPS Academy was the first person to honestly explain to us options and provide us with information so that we could make informed decisions about their education.  For that we are forever grateful and trust him beyond measure. AoPS Academy is far more than just an after-school academic training center. They have gone above and beyond to help our children's talents develop into their full potential.  Art of Problem Solving Academy will continue to be a key part of our long-term education plan.  The results have been amazing! They are truly my children’s first school, even though they are an after-school program!"
