MATH

SJIC offers enrichment math which focuses on a deep understanding of mathematics concepts through problem solving and reasoning. SJIC’s competition math takes math to the next level with an introduction to competitive problem solving.

Enrichment Gr 2-3

We will cover concepts like place value, arithmetic operations in object manipulations, basic understanding of fractions, measurement units, spatial awareness, and more through hands-on activities, word problems and games!

Enrichment Gr 3-4

We’ll build on students’ basic understanding of place values to make students comfortable working with large numbers, as well as expose them to geometry concepts.

Enrichment Gr 4-5

We’ll build on students’ basic understanding of mathematical operations to further explore perfect squares and distributive property. Students will work on estimations and measurements as well as geometry at the next level.

Competitions Gr 3-4

Singapore level 3 books will be used in this class to work through problems and various math challenges. Students will participate in the Math Kangaroo contest which is where the learning emphasis is on cooperative approach.

Competitions Gr 4-5

Beast Academy 4 and 5 levels allow us accessible and fun approach to those challenging areas of math. Certain classical math circle problems will be introduced from Math Kangaroo and MOEMS competitions.

Competitions Gr 5-6

Certain classical math circle problems will be introduced from Math Kangaroo and MOEMS competitions. Students will also be exposed to math topics not included in school curriculum, that promote critical thinking skills through numerous logic problem series.

Competitions Gr 7-8

We will move fast through the material with various competition problems from MathCounts, AMC 8, and MOEMS. Course will be based on Art of Problem Solving textbooks.

Competitions Gr 9-10

This year we are excited to run a class for our more competitive high school students. Class will be based on “Art and Craft of Problem Solving” book by Paul Zeitz. Students will be expected to complete and hand in homework every week. Various competition problems from AMC 10 and 12, Purple Comet, and Lehigh Math Contest will be reviewed in class.
