Our expert instructors use Art of Problem Solving curriculum to teach Contest Math 8: Intro to Geometry. AoPS curriculum is a much broader and deeper exploration of challenging mathematics than a typical math curriculum, preparing students for success at top universities and in competitive careers.
In this course, students learn the fundamentals of geometry, including the study of angles, triangle similarity and congruence, special quadrilaterals, polygons, the art of angle chasing, power of a point, three-dimensional geometry, transformations, analytic geometry, basic trigonometry, geometric proof, and more. Students are further challenged by contest problems that incorporate multiple concepts and skills, and sometimes require out-of-the-box thinking.
Our instructors hold classes virtually, in a small-sized (10-16 students) videoconferencing
