This is a quarter-length elective course whose focus is to prepare for local and national math contests. The focus is on building problem-solving skills and fostering collaboration. The mathematical topics include combinatorics, probability, elementary number theory, recursively defined functions, and geometry. A special emphasis is placed on logic and proof writing. The math team competes in the annual Harvard-MIT math tournament in Boston, Massachusetts, and the Stanford Math Tournament in Palo Alto, California. Additional expenses for traveling to these contests are not included in tuition. Local contests include the Snow College Math Contest, the AMC 10/12, and the Utah State Math Competition.
The prerequisite is Algebra II, though Pre-Calculus is highly recommended.
