ADVANCED  MATH

Grade 6 and up.

Advanced math courses are prepared for students interested in deeper exploration of mathematicsThe courses will provide a concrete understanding of all the concepts crucial for discovering the application of Algebra and Geometry. Special attention will be dedicated to number theory, polynomials, equations, patterns, and functions using a style of integrated mathematics. Rather than the traditional approach of having students mimic routines, the main focus will emphasize genuine learning of the concepts and the beauty of logics.

After completion of the courses, students will be confident in the several mathematics concepts and ready to start implementing new problem solving techniques. Students with enthusiasm about learning challenging math will benefit the most from this course.
