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. 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.Lessons
