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)

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.
