Math 6 | 6 | 10:05-11:35 | Mary Marvin | Math 6 will cover all material of a 6th grade class in a child’s regular school, including things he must know for the PARCC Test at the end of 6th Grade. However, the focus is on problem solving with topics studied throughout the school year, all done at a deep level. Many multi-step problems will be done in class and assigned for homework. Students will move into topics of Pre-Algebra, including negative numbers, and the concept of a variable and simple equations and how they are useful. The topics of arithmetic – fractions, decimals, rate, ratio, percentages, will now be deepened with hard word problems on each. Geometry will continue, with more complex area, perimeter and volume problems, and now quadrilaterals and angles in polygons. Along with the rigorous arithmetic program, there will be a heavy component of challenging and exciting Olympiad and contest type problems on topics like probability, sets, counting principles and combinatorics. |

Math 8A VC | 7 | Mary Marvin | Students will continue learning how to deal with fractions, including finding common denominators for more than two fractions, multiplication of mixed numbers and more difficult fraction word problems. Decimals, to the ten-thousandths place and their equivalent fractions will be covered. Other topics will include finding the average of a group of numbers, ratio, percent, graphs and geometry such as area of a triangle and other geometric shapes besides squares and rectangles. Along with these topics some special and interesting topics like sets and probability will be introduced, we’ll look at Pascal’s triangle also. Logic problems and puzzles will be part of each lesson, as well as practice for the Common Core tests next spring so kids will be thoroughly prepared and ready. | |

English 6 | 5-6 | 9:50 - 10:35 | Aidan O Connor | Fall 18 English 6 will be reading and writing enhancement course based on the sixth-grade level. The class may also be feasible for advanced 5th-grade students. The Reading aspect of the course will be roughly 1/3 non-fiction material and 2/3 fiction material. It will focus on building advanced comprehension skills such as identifying motifs, arguments, theses, and the author\'s inspirations and goals. The writing aspect of the course will split its focus between persuasive, fact-based writing and creative, personal-based writing. Assignments will include persuasive essays, research essays, personal essays, literary-response essays, and a small amount of poetry. The first half of the course will lean towards persuasive, fact-based writing (research papers, persuasive writing) and will move to more creative processes in the second half. Expect 1-2 hours of homework per week, mostly writing based. Feel free to contact me with any questions about the course. |

Math Math - 6 | 6 | 12:30 - 13:30 | Dr. Grigory Portnov | At this level, math students need to know and really understand basic laws and rules of algebra. This program teaches the algebraic rules from the simplest to more advanced, formulas and applications. The program includes many types of word problems and shows how they can be solved. Besides Algebra, the program includes several enrichment topics such as Mathematical Induction, Combinatorics, Logic games, Fibonacci sequence.. Students learn to use logical reasoning, systematic approaches to problem solving, calculations and algebraic transformations. This class also prepares students for the admission tests into the selective High Schools. This program is targeted to 6th, 7th and 8th grade students and is aligned with Focal points of Standards suggested by National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) This class also prepares students for the admission tests to the selective High Schools. |

Math Math-7 | 7 | 18:00 - 19:00 | Dr. Grigory Portnov | The main goal of our classes for the Middle School grades is to make sure that at this level, math students know and really understand basic laws and rules of Algebra. Besides Algebra, the program includes several advanced topics, such as Mathematical Induction, Combinatorics, Logical games, Fibonacci sequence. Students are expected to use basics of Algebra and Geometry effectively in different situations, starting with taking multiple-choice tests, where everything should be done quickly, and ending with solving complicated problems from Math Olympiads, that require a non-routine approach and creative thinking. SchoolPlus test preparation classes differ from other test preparation programs. Students not only master test-taking techniques, but also study Mathematics as a subject. Without good understanding of math concepts and how they are interconnected, improvement of their score beyond a certain point becomes impossible. In our opinion, the serious and systematic studying of Mathematics is the only way to achieve a high score. This program for upper middle school is targeted to 7th and 8th grade students and is aligned with Focal points of Standards suggested by National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). This class also prepares students for the admission tests to the selective High Schools. |
