Beginning math and advanced math classes will be held on the same dates.

Beginning Math – Grades 5, 6

Description: In this course, students will learn how to develop their problem-solving skills and will learn about the foundational concepts of number theory, geometry, combinatorics, and algebra. Simulations will also be used to expose students to real-world scenarios. No prior knowledge is required: all students need for this class is enthusiasm!

Cost: We will be requesting a  60 dollar donation (one-time payment) for the complete course from November to April in order to cover the cost of insurance and cleaning fees.

Advanced Math – Grades 7, and 8

Description: In this course, students will learn how to further develop their problem-solving skills. By the end of this course, students will be able to apply this knowledge to a variety of logic problems and puzzles. Simulations will be used to expose students to real-world scenarios. Additionally, students will learn foundations and study some advanced topics in number theory, algebra, geometry, and combinatorics to prepare them for competitions. No prior knowledge is required: all students need for this class is enthusiasm!

Cost: We will be requesting a 60 dollar donation (one-time payment) for the complete course from November to April in order to cover the cost of insurance and cleaning fees.
