The Level

Right now the problems will be primarily middle school and early high school contest problems because I teach the middle school level Competitive Math Training through the Edina Center for Academic Excellence, so I have the most material prepared for that level. Since the problems sets and solutions are geared toward middle school and early high school students, I assume students are skilled at working with fractions, decimals, percents, and ratios, and are familiar with basic probability. Algebra is not a prerequisite, but I do assume that students have some experience solving equations and working with square roots and exponents. Basic volume and area formulas should be understood, and students should know how to use the Pythagorean theorem.
