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 Upper Middle School, Math Competitive High School**, please contact tatiana@incntr.com to receive a placement test.

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

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. We are inspired by works of Jane Katz, math education specialist from Moscow, as well as classical Russian math circle topics. We also will be working slowly and thoroughly through Beast Academy math books starting with 2A in this class.

**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. Participation is optional in the Math Kangaroo contest where the emphasis is on a cooperative approach.

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

Beast Academy level 3 will be used in class, incorporating 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. Understanding of fractions will be reviewed, basic operations with simple fractions will be required in some word problems. 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. Students are encouraged to participate in the Math Kangaroo contest which will take place in Match of 2023 through our center. Participation is optional in the Math Kangaroo contest where the emphasis is on a cooperative approach.

**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 to further explore properties of numbers such as perfect squares and distributive property. Understanding of fractions will be reviewed, basic operations with simple fractions will be required in most word problems. 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. Students are expected to participate in the Math Kangaroo contest which will take place in March of 2023 through our center.

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

Beast Academy level 5 will be used in class, combined 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 problem solving. Certain classical math circle problems will be introduced from Math Kangaroo, MOEMS, and MathCounts competitions. Students are expected to participate in Math Kangaroo in March of 2023, as well as five MOEMS sessions that happen monthly November through March.

**Grades 6-8 | Duration: 1 hour**

Select chapters from AoPS Intro to Counting and Probability and Intro to Number Theory will be covered. The goal will be for students to be comfortable with competition level problem solving. Certain classical math circle problems will be introduced from AMC 8, MOEMS, and MathCounts competitions.

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

This high school problem solving class will continue preparing for AMC10/AMC12 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.
