Math Circle: We are pleased to be working with Cambridge Math Circle, who facilitate weekly sessions during which students play math-related games, work on a variety of puzzles, and wrestle with Olympiad-style problems that are appropriate to their level of mathematical understanding. The goal is to help students use the basic tools they've learned in school math to answer deeper questions, and to be able to discover their own solutions to challenging problems, and above all, to enjoy doing math and have fun!
This semester, Spring 2020, we are excited to announce that the same Math Circle you know and love is now broken into two different classes to meet better students' needs. Students in Grade 2 will participate in Math Circle Juniors on Wednesday afternoon and students in Grades 3-5 will participate in the more advanced Math Circle Seniors class.
Math Exploration: Your kid can't get enough of math?! Our newest ASAP instructor David Kramer will take students on grand math adventures each week. The class, which is held on Monday afternoons for students in Grades 3-5, will feature student-led curriculum exploring deeper math concepts.
Math League: Thursdays: Grades 4-5. Mr. Z will lead our Math League students every week in problem solving skills focused on the potential to compete in "The Math League" competitions. The Math League has Contests for Grades 4 through 8, Algebra 1 students, and High School Students. Over one million students from the United States and Canada participate in Math League Contests each year. Every contest has questions from different areas of mathematics. The goal is to encourage student interest and confidence in mathematics through solving worthwhile problems. Many students first develop an interest in mathematics through problem-solving activities such as these contests. Schools compete in statewide or multi-state league competitions.
