Description: This course covers basic counting concepts including Venn Diagrams, the Fundamental Counting Principle, permutations, combinations, casework, constructive counting, complementary counting, counting with restrictions, and Pascal’s triangle.
Homework: Math is not a spectator sport. Practice is essential, hence twenty to thirty minutes of homework three times a week and a desire to improve will be the key to getting the most out of this course.
Prerequisites: Students should be advanced in mathematical reasoning beyond grade level and must be fluent with basic pre-algebra skills such as fractions, decimals, percents, and ratios. Algebra is not a prerequisite, but students should have some experience solving basic linear equations and working with square roots and exponents.
Intro to Counting PostTest: Students who can answer most or all of the questions on this post-test will likely find this course mostly review.
