Chess Adv | N. M. Karakashyan | |||

Math 6 | 6 | 8:45-10:15 | 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. |

Architecture4Kids 2 | 6-8 | 10:40 -- 11:25 | Greg Gurevich | Spring\'20 For 12-14 years old it is a chance to learn the basics of architecture, how buildings work, how they are built through drawing and calculations. Students will learn how to assemble their own creations. Materials to be used: lego, wood, paper, cardboard, duct tape, straws, tooth pics, leaves and clay. |

English 6 | 5-6 | 9:50 - 10:35 | Aidan O Connor | Spring\'20 ELA 6 will be a 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 class will also prepare students for the 6th grade State ELA Exam with test strategies, explanation of the exam, and practice. The writing aspect of the course will split its focus between persuasive, fact-based writing and creative, personal-based writing. The class will also feature a small amount of grammar. Assignments will include persuasive essays, personal essays, literary-response essays, and poetry. The first half of the course will lean towards persuasive, fact-based writing (research papers, persuasive writing), the class will then send some time prepping for the State Exam in April and then will move to more creative processes in the tail end of the course. Expect ~1 hour of homework per week, mostly writing based. Feel free to contact me with any questions about the course. |

Geography/History 1 | 5-7 | 11:30 - 12:30 | Antonina Lifshits | Spring\'20 This class will continue for the most part looking at the history of the world chronologically, starting from the period of the late 18 th century onwards. We will start with the subjects of American and French revolutions and continue onto the history of the 19 th century. We shall, however, also re-trace our steps and go back to the history of China, India, Japan and other non-European countries in 16-18 th century and some other parts of the world. The students will be offered to do their own presentations on historical figures or events. However, this year I would also like to incorporate in our classes a light version of the book club/debate units and have some more candid discussions of issues, rather then just interesting facts. |

Russian 5/6 | 5-6 | 1:10 -- 1:55 | Nadezhda Zhavoronkina | Spring\'20 The curriculum of this class is best fitted for emerging readers. We will continue reading, retelling and discussing simple (but meaningful) stories, learn poems by heart and get acquainted with rich possibilities of Russian idioms. The focus of the class, however, will be on writing and basic grammar. This class will reinforce reading skills, enrich vocabulary, as well as encourage our students to express their thoughts and observations correctly and coherently. |

Russian 6/7 | 6-7 | 2:00 - 2:45 | Nadezhda Zhavoronkina | Spring\'20 This course is designed for sixth/seventh grades bilingual students with a strong foundation in Russian. It aims to increase students\' reading and speaking proficiency to an advanced level. Students will continue studying Russian orthography. During this semester, they will practice writing paragraphs and short stories. Exercises will develop the child\'s active and passive vocabulary. Regular homework will include reading short stories, composing and answering questions, performing simple grammar exercises and memorizing pieces of poetry to complement language proficiency. The exposure to and study of contemporary and classical literature will continue complementing the technical aspects of the course, thereby developing students\' knowledge and understanding of Russian culture. |

SHSAT_Practice_Tests 20 New | 7 | 10:40 - 12:40 | Aidan O Connor | Spring\'20 The curriculum includes complete topics coverage as well as systematic SHSAT preparation. The primary goal of the course is to make sure that students have academic knowledge of Math and ELA and the skills needed to succeed on the exam. Students will both study the curriculum knowledge necessary to succeed on the exam but will also study and practice key test taking strategies that have been proven to increase children\'s scores. The course also provides (abbreviated) practice exams periodically (5 in total) in order to assess your child\'s performance and growth. The course also provides a brief introduction to the schools that are available to get into as well as educates students on how the SHSAT scoring works and personally customized ideas on what are the best ways to improve your overall score. The course includes: -Vital practice questions that cover all tested material -Proven score-raising strategies with an emphasis on improving math and verbal skills -25 important math subjects/concepts covered on the exam -Practice Reading Comprehension passages (non-fiction, literary, and poetry). -Full-length practice tests and the most up-to-date information about the test |

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. |
