Who Should Take?
This course is appropriate for students in grades 69 who have mastered basic algebra up through solving linear equations and manipulating multivariable expressions. Students who have completed our Introduction to Algebra A course should have sufficient background. Students who are already proficient with modular arithmetic and basic Diophantine equations do not need this course. This course is roughly the same difficulty as our Introduction to Counting and Probability class. For those preparing for contests, this course should help with MATHCOUNTS and the AMC 8/10/12 tests.Lessons
