    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.

    This course will require both the Introduction to Geometry and Art of Problem Solving, Volume 1 textbooks.

    Contest Math 8
    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.
