Algebra 1

Academic Year Mathematics

In Algebra 1, students learn how to work with various types of expressions both algebraically and geometrically. They learn how to solve linear and quadratic equations and how to represent various expressions in the Cartesian plane. We introduce students to the rich field of complex numbers, as well as to important common functions and concepts in discrete math. We continue the emphasis on challenging word problems from Prealgebra, so that students learn when and how to apply their new tools. Many of the more challenging problems of Algebra 1 come from contests such as MATHCOUNTS, AMC 8, and AMC 10.

Students completing Algebra 1 are ready to apply their algebra skills to our Geometry course.

Textbooks: Introduction to Algebra and Introduction to Counting & Probability by Art of Problem Solving.

Hardcopy and temporary access to the online version of the textbooks are included in the tuition and fees of this course.

Sample Problems

Below are examples of some of the types of problems that students will encounter in our Algebra 1 course.
"AoPS Academy has a superb curriculum, combined with outstanding teachers who have provided our son a fantastic foundation in mathematics. If only I could have experienced teaching like this when I was young, it would have changed my career choice. The academy is a perfect extension of school in that they challenge students to learn at a much deeper and rigorous level. They also stimulate their interest in mathematics by emphasizing analytical thought over rote memorization of formulas.

The academy truly lays a deep foundation in mathematical thinking for success in all areas involving STEM subjects. It is really exciting to be among teachers and children who love math!

The harder the problem - the more exciting it is to the students and teachers at AoPS Academy."
