Course Details

Pre-Algebra is a middle school level course that prepares students for the study of Algebra 1. This course is suitable for mathematically advanced fifth and sixth graders, in addition to seventh and eighth graders who would like to build a strong foundation in Pre-Algebra concepts.

Pre-Algebra B is meant to be taken directly after Pre-Algebra A. It covers three broad topics: geometry, number theory, and probability and combinatorics. The practice problems provided in this course range from fundamentals practice to complex word problems from previous AMC8 and MathCounts contests.
