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, and is used for both of our Prealgebra 1 and Prealgebra 2 online courses.

My 9-year-old son LOVED it! The math was inspiring, the teacher had a wonderful sense of humor, and the classroom gave him his first opportunity to meet other students who love math as much as he does. Amazing job! Thank goodness we found AOPS!
