This is a class for students who have thoroughly mastered addition and subtraction of numbers to 40 using vertical algorithm as well as using mental calculation strategies; know multiplication table up to 5 and related division facts; have basic understanding of fractions; can solve simple word problems including problems which involve multiplication and division.
We will continue on with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, paying special attention to mental calculation as well as developing deep understanding of a place value. We will also learn how to find a number given a sum and a difference of two numbers, how to make a whole with fractions with like denominators. We will learn how to solve problems with money, time and time intervals and other units of time.
The teacher of this class is also going to implement some of the successful lessons from Natasha Rozhkovskaya’s book “Math Circles for Elementary School Students”. These enrichment lessons will help students develop deep feeling and understanding of numbers and include the following concepts and ideas: Square and square numbers, Random Maze, Experiments with triangles and quadrilaterals, Magic wheel and secret codes, Pascal’s triangle and many more fun activities. 
   Math C      3    10:20-11:35    Zoya Koza.      This is a class for students who have mastered addition and subtraction of numbers to 100 using mental calculation strategies as well as vertical algorithm. In addition, students are expected to have mastered the multiplication facts and related to them division facts up to 10 x10. We will continue on with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, paying special attention to mental calculation as well as using place value concept (vertical algorithm) for numbers up to 1000.

Students will learn rules for mental (partial) multiplication and division. Students will also learn how to compare fractions by drawing ad dividing bars, circles and other shapes and defining them on the number line. Students will be introduced to several strategies for solving multi-step word problems such as model approach, guess and check, restate and replace strategy and supposition method. Students will compute the perimeters and areas of regular and composite shapes in various measurement units and define various shapes and angles. In addition, the teacher of this class is going to implement some challenging problems from various Math Olympiad level sources. These enrichment lessons will help students develop deep feeling and understanding of numbers. 
   Math D      4    11:45-1:00    Zoya Koza.      Fall 2019 Math C (4)
This is a class for students who have thoroughly mastered addition/ subtraction of numbers to 1000 using vertical algorithm as well as using mental calculation strategies; have deep knowledge of place value; know multiplication table up to 12 and related division facts, can solve multi-step word problems and have developed clear understanding of equivalent fractions and geometry of angles and polygons. In addition, this class is for students who have developed visible thinking skills as well as process skills such as supposition, restate and replace methods and other strategies described in the Process Skills level 3, model and heuristic (experimental) approach to problem solving.
The goal of this class is: continuous implementation of strategies described above reaching the level 4 of the Singapore math system. Level 4 is compatible only with the grade 5 of common core as well as other higher-level mathematical thinking concepts.
Every month students will practice and take MOEM Olympiad test.
