Description: In the Algebra Readiness course, students in 5th, 6th and 7th grade will learn how to master problem solving techniques in order to place into advanced math classes while in middle school. This will allow them to save at least one to two years of math requirements that will help them to get into higher level math courses earlier (such as Calculus AB or BC) by the time they enter into high school. Students will benefit from taking both the Winter Term and Spring Term courses leading up to the time when they will need to take the Algebra Readiness math placement test in school.

This course includes 1.5-hour online course and homework, and one-hour onsite instruction at MiT school weekly. The students are required to finish watching online course and the homework before meeting with the instructor on Sunday.

Fall term will cover the following 14 topics:

1. Expressions and Basic Operations
2. Operations with Integers
3. Problem Solving with Integer Operations
4. Fraction Basics and Simplifying; Integer Factors
5. Operations with Fractions; Integer Multiples
6. Problem Solving with Fractions

Math Challenge 1-B

Students learn math skills at a deeper level with topics in beginning algebra, fundamental geometry, basic number theory, and counting strategies. The students not only learn practical skills of challenging problem solving that are supplemental to their school curricula, but also develop skills in creative thinking, logical reasoning, oral and written presentation, and team work. This course helps 6th to 8th graders to participate in the American Mathematics Competition (AMC) 8, MathCounts and Math Olympiads for Elementary and Middle School MOEMS. Through the effective guidance and direction by our experienced teachers, students develop strong problem solving skills that make them perform well in those contests.
