SJIC offers enrichment math which focuses on a deep understanding of mathematics concepts through problem solving and reasoning. SJIC’s competition math takes math to the next level with an introduction to competitive problem solving.

All students will receive a workbook or printouts and are expected to complete the assigned homework before the next class.

**If you wish to enroll your child in the following classes: ** Math Enrichment 3/4, Math Competitive 4/5, Math Competitive 5/6, Math Competitive 6, Math Competitive 7/8, Math Competitive High School**, please contact tatiana@incntr.com to receive a placement test.

**Grades 1-2 | Duration: 1 hour**

Beast Academy books starting with 1A will be our main workbooks in class (roughly corresponds to grade 2 US math).The main concepts, such as place value, recognizing arithmetic operations in object manipulations, basic understanding of fractions, measurement units, spatial awareness, will be addressed through hands-on activities, word problems and games. Many games and hand-on activities are inspired by works of Jane Katz, math education specialist from Moscow, as well as classical Russian math circle topics.

**Grades 2-3 | Duration: 1 hour**

Beast Academy books starting with 2B will be our main workbooks in class (roughly corresponds to grade 3 US math). We’ll build on students’ basic understanding of place values to make them comfortable working with large numbers, reinforce mental math and problem solving strategies. Exposure to geometry will include hands-on experience with polygons, angles, nets of simple polyhedra. Certain classical math circle problems will be introduced from Math Kangaroo competition practice. Families will have an opportunity to sign students up for the Math Kangaroo contest if interested.

**Grades 3-4 | Duration: 1 hour**

Beast Academy level 3 will be used in class, incorporation grade 3 and select grade 4 common core standards in problem solving. We’ll build on students’ basic understanding of mathematical operations to further explore properties of numbers such as perfect squares and distributive property. Basic operations with simple fractions will be introduced. Students will work on estimations and measurements. Exposure to geometry will include hands-on experience with polygons, angles, nets of simple polyhedra, as well as calculations of area and perimeter. Certain classical math circle problems will be introduced from Math Kangaroo and MOEMS competitions. Families will have an opportunity to sign students up for the Math Kangaroo and MOEMS contests if interested.

**Grades 4-5 | Duration: 1 hour**

Beast Academy level 4 will be used in class. This class will move quickly as we build on students’ basic understanding of mathematical operations with fractions. decimals, and integers. Most importantly, this is the year students are introduced to counting (precursor of combinatorics) and probability, both topics quite popular in math competitions. Certain classical math circle problems will be introduced from Math Kangaroo and MOEMS competitions. Students are encouraged to participate in the Math Kangaroo contest which will take place in March of 2024 through our center, as well as the MOEMS level E contest. New students grade 5, returning students grade 4. **New students request assessment emailing tatiana@incntr.com**

**Grades 5-6 | Duration: 1 hour**

Beast Academy level 5 will be used in class, continued with the Prealgebra AoPS textbook. Classical Pre Algebra topics will be covered, such as integers, solving linear equations, elements of number theory, and statistics. The goal will be for students to be comfortable with competition level in problem solving. Students will also work on practice sets of Math Kangaroo, MOEMS, and MathCounts competitions. MOEMS level E contest will take place as part of this class. Students are encouraged to participate in Math Kangaroo in March of 2024. New students grade 6, Returning students grade 5. **New students request assessment emailing tatiana@incntr.com**

**Grades 6 | Duration: 1 hour**

Prealgebra AoPS textbook will be mainly used in class, supplemented by practice problem sets and Edward Zaccaro book during competition season. Classical Pre Algebra topics will be covered, such as integers, solving linear equations, elements of number theory, and statistics. The goal will be for students to be comfortable with competition level in problem solving. Students are invited to join the MOEMS contest at the center. Students are also encouraged to participate in Math Kangaroo in March of 2024. New students request assessment emailing tatiana@incntr.com

**Grades 7-8 | Duration: 1 hour**

The main focus of this group is going to be Geometry, with emphasis on problem solving. Select topics related to Algebra, Counting and Probability, and Number Theory will be briefly reviewed during the competition season. Students are invited to join MOEMS contest at the center. Students are also encouraged to participate in Math Kangaroo in March of 2024. **New students request assessment emailing tatiana@incntr.com**

**Grades 9-12 | Duration: 1 hour**

The main focus of this high school problem solving class is PreCalculus. In addition, students will continue preparing for AMC10/AMC12 and Purple Comet competitions. We will move quickly through the material, and students will be expected to complete and hand in homework every week. New students need to show strong performance on our evaluation test and interview to join the class.
