Note that weekends are included in this three-week session.
Theory & Practice
Develops pre-algebra skills using number theory to build a strong foundation for the future study of algebra and geometry. Recommended for students who will take Pre-Algebra or Algebra.
(rising 6th and 7th grades)
Al-gabr Wa’l-muqabala: Completion & Balancing
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 7th through 9th grades)
Builds on strong arithmetic and algebraic skills the inductive, deductive and constructive methods of geometry. The axiomatic method of geometric proofs will be emphasized throughout the course.
(rising 8th and 9th 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.
