Our children are not getting the education they need to compete in the 21st century global economy. In our math classes, we teach students of all skill levels the kinds of math missing in school. Our students learn key concepts and techniques, and practice applying them in both abstract and applied situations. If your child is always asking questions in school that his teacher says are “beyond the scope of this class”, these classes are perfect. Our teachers are excited to answer exactly those sorts of questions. Unlike the dry math taught in schools, these classes are fun and energetic, with other students who are eager to learn.

The skills students learn in our classes will prepare them for advanced math in college, and also develop the kind of scientific thinking needed for all kinds of science and engineering classes. Math and mathematical thinking are crucial for all STEM fields, and developing these skills early gives students a competitive edge in both their classes and the real world.

Developing Reasoning and Problem Solving Skills Through Math:
Topics below give an idea of general direction I would like to take your child in our exploration of Mathematics. It’s not a quick journey by any means. Our youngest students might just get a taste of some topics on their first year, sometimes in a form of a game or hands-on activity. Returning middle-schoolers, on the other hand, will be challenged to apply the familiar concepts in serious problem solving.

Numeral systems and deeper understanding of base ten notation
Cuneiform and Roman numerals (positional vs non-positional numeral systems)
addition, multiplication and long division puzzles with same digits replaced by same letters
exploding dots (introduction to positional systems other than decimal)
operations in other bases, conversion of numbers between bases
Introduction to number theory – Parity
even vs odd numbers, definition and easy recognition
keeping track of parity in arithmetic operations
keeping track of parity during a process with alterations (what side of the fence is a grasshopper after 315 jumps)
recognizing parity in longer arithmetic expressions
Introduction to number theory – Divisibility
review of divisibility rules by 2, 3, 5, with justification
skip counting on a circle predicting result
prime factorization, LCM and GCF
Arithmetics
order of operations, parenthesis
recognizing order of operations in word problems
regrouping of long sums for efficiency, introduction to finite series
Word problems
review of famous arithmetics problems (heads and legs, birds landing of trees, etc.)
organizing data into table for certain logic problems
working backwards problems
organizing data as a chart (I have twice as much as you:), converting into algebraic expressions
date, time, calendar and age in word problems (organizing what’s given)
word problems on fractions
Coordinate systems
number line: negative numbers (basement floors, piles and pits in a sandbox)
number line: what is there between 0 and 1?
geometry of graph paper
Geometry
counting polygons on a given picture
split a shape into identical parts in all possible ways, construct all possible shapes from parts given
length, perimeter, when does perimeter stay the same
direction and angles, properties of angles of polygons
area of certain polygons, area of a part as a fraction of a whole
Solid Geometry
review of nets of a cube, introducing nets of other polyhedra
building all possible Platonic solids
observations on numbers of vertices, edges, sides of polyhedra
connections of a 3d shape and its 2d images
volume
Various other topics
graphs: relationships of “phone lines”, “islands and bridges” as graphs, unicursal lines
elements of topology: labyrinths, verifying if a point belongs to closed shape, 3d topology tricks
elements of combinatorics: counting paths, permutations
logic: true and false statements, opposite statement, “knights and liars” problems
strategy games
puzzles
