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 temporary access to the 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 has a superb curriculum, combined with outstanding teachers who have provided our son a fantastic foundation in mathematics. If only I could have experienced teaching like this when I was young, it would have changed my career choice. The academy is a perfect extension of school in that they challenge students to learn at a much deeper and rigorous level. They also stimulate their interest in mathematics by emphasizing analytical thought over rote memorization of formulas.

The academy truly lays a deep foundation in mathematical thinking for success in all areas involving STEM subjects. It is really exciting to be among teachers and children who love math!

The harder the problem - the more exciting it is to the students and teachers at AoPS Academy."
