AoPS Holidays

There are no classes October 31, November 23–29, and December 21–January 3.

Who Should Take?

This course is appropriate for students in grades 6-9 who have mastered basic algebra up through solving linear equations and manipulating multi-variable expressions. Students who have completed our Introduction to Algebra A course should have sufficient background. This course is roughly the same difficulty as our Introduction to Number Theory class. For those preparing for contests, this course should help with MATHCOUNTS and the AMC 8/10/12 tests.

Required Textbook

Introduction to Counting & Probability
By David Patrick
A thorough introduction for students in grades 7-10 to counting and probability topics such as permutations, combinations, Pascal's triangle, geometric probability, basic combinatorial identities, the Binomial Theorem, and more.

I liked this class. The concepts seemed interesting and new and much better than what I would learn in school. I learned a lot about combinations and how they work. I really enjoyed this class.
