## Math Challenge I-A Number Theory Textbook

Math Challenge I-A is an introductory level course for 6-8 grade students who have no experience in in-depth problem solving nor math competitions. Students learn skills to apply the concepts they learn in school math classes into problem solving. Content includes pre-algebra, fundamental geometry, counting and probability, and basic 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 and Math Olympiads for Elementary and Middle School (MOEMS).

The course is divided into four terms:

- Summer, covering Pre-Algebra and Word Problems
- Fall, covering Geometry
- Winter, covering Counting & Probability
- Spring, covering Number Theory

The book contains course materials for Math Challenge I-A: Number Theory.

We recommend that students take all four terms. Each of the individual terms is self-contained and does not depend on other terms, so they do not need to be taken in order, and students can take single terms if they want to focus on specific topics.
