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 temporary access to the online version of the textbook are included in the tuition and fees of this course.
