2017-2018 School Year
Personalized AoPS Math Lessons
- Description: These personalized lessons are designed for students who have passed Singapore Math 6B and Challenging Word Problems Book 6, and would like to systematically learn some more advanced math. Personalized instructions will be given during lessons, and homework is assigned and checked to encourage self learning. The following introduction series books from the Art of Problem Solving will be used as text books for these lessons:
Introduction to Geometry
Introduction to Number Theory
Introduction to Counting and Probability
Note: We usually suggest that students start from Introduction to Algebra as the first book to learn in this
series. This is partly because Algebra is a prerequisite for Geometry and Counting and Probability.
More importantly, algebra is very useful if a student is interested in any STEM related major. Counting
and Probability is also essential to many majors, including computer programming, engineering,
economics, finance, social science, etc.
