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 this class! This online classroom provided all of the clarification I needed for Prealgebra. The challenge problems had me actually thinking and Alcumus really helped me practice the strategies that I was taught. I learned many, MANY things this year and I now understand things that I never understood before. The classes were very fun and engaging and went at the perfect pace. I also enjoyed having the transcripts to refer to when I had to miss a class or was in need of rereading some information that I'd forgotten. All in all, this was a SUPER great class and I am looking forward to joining Prealgebra 2!
