Required Textbook

Introduction to Geometry
By Richard Rusczyk
A full course in challenging geometry for students in grades 7-10, including topics such as similar triangles, congruent triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, circles, funky areas, power of a point, three-dimensional geometry, transformations, introductory trigonometry, and more.

I really enjoyed taking my first AoPS class. I always thought that online classes weren't very good. I was mistaken after I took this class. Not only did Introduction to Geometry help me become a better math student, it also helped me to think more abstractly and look for multiple roads to solve a problem. I enjoy the way the classroom is run and the pace was very nice. The class wasn’t boring at all. This class challenged me to become a better thinker and was way more challenging than regular school courses. I am also very glad that AoPS also included a little bit of a social aspect to math with the message boards. I made a lot of friends through this course. In school, I am always made fun of for being ahead of all of the other students. On AoPS I actually feel accepted for once because I can interact with kids that are more advanced than I am and also I learn from them. I will definitely take another AoPS class.
