Algorithmica k/1 | 11:30-12:15 | n/a | An algorithm is a step-by-step procedure or directions for doing something. Most often, an algorithm is created for a computer or a robot, but a cake recipe is an algorithm, too! Children learn about computers and robots, but most importantly, they develop their thinking and creativity. While solving logical problems, playing memory games or acting out the algorithms, the students gain important cognitive skills and construct mathematical and programming concepts. Students do not need to bring laptops to this class (although some homework tasks may require use of computer). Parents are strongly encouraged to stay in class, observe and (if need be) help the students, for example: transitioning between activities, understanding the tasks, handling manipulatives and robots. Bigtrak is a programmable electric vehicle that can remember up to 16 commands and execute them in sequence. The commants are entered through the keypad on top of the vehicle.

Math 5 | 4 | 11:40 -12:55 | Mary Marvin | Math 4A will cover all material of a 4th grade class in a child’s regular school, including things he must know for the PARCC Test at the end of 4th 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. Included are long multiplication and division with 2 and 3-digit numbers, continuation of fractions, with addition and subtraction with different denominators, and many word problems, introduction to decimals and how they relate to fractions, and further development of geometry, area and perimeter, volume. Along with the rigorous arithmetic program, challenging and exciting Olympiad and contest type problems will be included each week as part of the lesson. |

Math 6 | 5 | 8:45-10:15 | Mary Marvin | Math 5A will cover all material of a 5th grade class in a child’s regular school, including things he must know for the PARCC Test at the end of 5th 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 deepen their understanding of fractions and decimals, and do many hard numerical and word problems with them. We will move into percentages, ratios and some introductory pre-algebra. Geometry will continue, with harder area and perimeter problems, and now area of a triangle and composite figures. 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 7 VC | 6 | 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 A1, Geom | 7 | 1:00-2:30 | Mary Marvin | |

Math Alg 2 VC | 8 | 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. | |
