Session II runs from Sunday, July 5 through Friday, July 24. This session is recommended for both middle and high school students. Note that weekends are included in this three-week session. Courses offered:
Theory & Practice
Develops pre-algebra skills using number theory to build a strong foundation for the future study of algebra and geometry. Note that ℚ NUMBERS is the continuation of the NUMBERS course with an emphasis on rational numbers and problem solving (fractions!). Recommended for students who will take Pre-Algebra or Algebra. (rising 6th and 7th grades)
Al-gabr Wa’l-muqabala: Completion & Balancing
This course is a continuation of LETTERS. Presents methodology and procedures to develop advanced algebraic skills essential for the study of higher mathematics. Recommended for students who will take Algebra I or II (rising 8th through 10th grades).
That’s what a function is all about!
Studies the properties, graphs, transformations and compositions of algebraic and elementary transcendental functions. Methodologies and procedures for the solution of nonlinear equations and inequalities will be developed throughout the course. Recommended for students who will take Algebra II or Math Analysis/PreCalculus. (rising 9th through 11th grades)
The ABC’s of Advanced Mathematics
Develops the ideas and methods of the calculus of Sir Issac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. Recommended for students who have taken pre-calculus or equivalent course or an introductory calculus course. (rising 11th & 12th grades and graduating seniors)
Presents and develops the theory of Linear Algebra and its applications through vector spaces and matrices. Recommended for students who have completed at least one year of calculus or a course equivalent to calculus AB or BC. (rising 11th , 12th grade and graduating seniors, Session II)
