Math 6  6  4:305:45  Mikhail Chernobilsky  This is a class for students who have deep understanding of our number system, and can work comfortably with whole numbers as well as thoroughly mastered the basics of fractions and decimals.
The class will start the year with the intensive review of percentage and the connection of percentfractiondecimals, ratio, and rate. We will continue with the four operations on fractions and mixed numbers. Students will be solving more challenging word problems involving fractions and percentage, ratio and rate. They will learn circumference and area of a circle as well as triangle and quadrilateral geometry, more complex area, perimeter and volume problems.
Furthermore, we will be solving many nonroutine word problems and puzzles from different areas of mathematics. Finally, starting from November to March, students will have the opportunity to participate in the Math Olympiad, well known internationally as MOEMS. 

Math Algebra by  7/8  7:10  8:25  Mikhail Chernobilsky  The class will start with the intensive review of PreAlgebra topics including algebraic manipulations, equations and inequalities, solving word problems involving percentage, ratios and rate using algebra as well as area and volume.
We will continue with Algebra1, moving into more difficult topics. We will study quadratic equations and their graphs extensively, including transformations of quadratics (shifting, etc.) Many word problems, showing the usefulness of a quadratic equation will be looked at. Fractional expressions and equations as well as the laws of exponents, radicals, system of equations and functions will be studied in this class. Geometry will extend to covering special angles formed by parallel lines and transversals and properties of polygons.
In addition, we’ll be solving MOEMS problems and some challenging problems from other math contests like CML and MathKangaroo. 

Math by Topics  4  5:507:05  Mikhail Chernobilsky  “Math by Topics” course description (Math 4/5 @ Marlboro)
This is a class for students who have good understanding of number system, can work comfortably with whole numbers, including addition, subtraction, multiplication and division by a onedigit number, and have basic understanding of fractions.
In this class, students will continue with multiplication and division of whole numbers, order of operations and the four operations on decimals. Topics will cover fractions as part of a whole, mixed numbers and addition and subtraction of fractions will be covered more in depth, emphasizing visual fraction models. Geometry will move to the different parts of geometric objects, such as angles, providing special focus to properties of a triangle, perpendicular and parallel lines and solid figures. Throughout the year, students will be solving more complex word problems involving fractions, mixed numbers, area and perimeter of a composite figure and volume of a rectangular prism.
Furthermore, from November to March, students will be exposed to many nontraditional word problems and puzzles, which will better prepare them for participation in the wellknown International Math Olympiad  MOEMS.

Занятия будут направлены на:
 дальнейшее развитие как пассивного, так и активного словарного запаса;
 построение связанной речи;
 употребление слов в правильной грамматической форме;
 знакомство с произведениями детской литературы с последующим обсуждением;
 заучивание коротких стихотворений с целью развития речи и памяти;
 начинаем осваивать элементы письма. 

Russian k  K  4:205:20  Regina Gertsenshteyn  Дети 35 лет из русскоязычных семей расширяют словарный запас и развивают речевые навыки.
Играя, учимся правильно задавать вопросы и отвечать на них, вести диалоги, описывать картинки, составлять по ним рассказы.
Будем пересказывать короткие интересные истории, разучивать стишки наизусть, слушать песенки.
Делаем первые шаги в обучении чтению.
