### Math Overview

AlphaStar Online Math Courses are great opportunities for interested and talented students to improve their math skills. Students are guided and trained by an expert faculty via utilizing national and international competitions in a fun and challenging environment.

The Math Curriculum at each level has four fundamental course offerings: Algebra, Counting, Geometry, and Number Theory. For example, MC25 level (AMC 8/MathCounts Advanced) has four fundamental courses: MC25A (Algebra), MC25G (Geometry), MC25C (Counting), and MC25N (Number Theory). Separate registration is required for each course.

Each course has 12 chapters. A chapter will be covered in a 90-minute live session. For each chapter, there will be Lecture Notes, Example Problems, Exercise (HW) Problems, Quiz. There is also a discussion forum where students can ask questions to the Faculty and peers. The same course material is used for the courses with the same code & name regardless of the term (Fall, Spring, Spring Accelerated, Summer, etc.) they are offered.

During the Live Classes, the Instructor will teach the Lecture Notes, solve Example Problems, and review some of the Exercise (HW) Problems. The lectures are recorded. Live class students can access the recorded lecture video in their course accounts within a few days after each live class session. Self-study class students will have access to recorded sessions from a past or current live class.

For each Chapter, students are encouraged to work an additional 1 hour to review the material and work on the Exercise (HW) and Quiz problems, preferably on a regular basis when the material is taught fresh. However, there is no deadline for HW and Quizzes, hence the students can take and submit them whenever they want during the 1 year time after the course enrollment. There will be a Final Exam that students can take online anytime after going through all the course material.
