**Advanced Math:** 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM every alternate Thursday, 110 Ryan Industrial Court, San Ramon, CA 94582 for 7th – 8th graders.

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!
