Required Textbook

Prealgebra
By Richard Rusczyk, David Patrick, Ravi Boppana
Prealgebra prepares students for the rigors of algebra and also teaches students problem-solving techniques to prepare them for prestigious middle school math contests such as MATHCOUNTS, MOEMS, and the AMC 8. The text is written to challenge students at a much deeper level than a traditional middle school prealgebra course.

I really enjoyed the challenge, and for some parts, I didn't want to stop practicing. The problems that were hard gave me a new sort of challenge that I hadn't had before. Sometimes I didn't understand some things, but I asked some questions and it cleared it up so that I understood. I really like my teachers, and I liked the fact that I was able to ask questions and get them answered, whether I didn't understand something or whether I had a question concerning the concept. I really enjoyed this class!
