### Course Description

**Math Challenge I-A** and **Math Challenge I-B** are introductory level courses for 5-8 grade students who have limited experience with in-depth problem solving and math competitions. Students learn skills to apply the concepts they learn in school math classes into problem solving. Content includes pre-algebra and beginning algebra, fundamental geometry, counting and probability, and basic concepts in number theory. Students develop skills in creative thinking, logical reasoning, analytical and problem solving skills. Students are exposed to beginning contests such as AMC 8, MATHCOUNTS, Math Olympiads for Elementary and Middle School (MOEMS), and ZIML Division M.

**MC I-A or MC I-B?**Â Content is similar for both courses. For live courses, we recommendÂ students without any math competition experience take I-A while more experienced students take I-B. Our self-paced courses for this level follow the Math Challenge I-B textbooks.
