Overview:

This course covers the main topics in middle school math. Students will be mastering these topics while solving challenging problems. Students go above and beyond Common Core standards in this brain-stimulating course. Students will also solve mathematical puzzles and cyphers and learn topics that are typically not covered at traditional school settings.

Although this course is typically recommended for students in grades 4th-8th, and anyone in 8th grade or below may enroll, we encourage younger students to participate as well!

Course Description:

This course will familiarize students with the essential concepts and techniques in Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, Number Theory and Combinatorics. We will have a specific emphasis on problem solving where the students will constantly be challenged to think creatively.

Course Objectives:

As of the completion of this course, students will:

• Have complete mastery of concepts covered in standard Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and Geometry courses, as well as topics not covered in traditional school curriculum.
• Be able to explain and employ important theorems and techniques used in Combinatorics, Number Theory, and Geometry.
• Be able to reduce unfamiliar problems to basic principles, and cleverly employ techniques they’ve learned to find shortcuts in solution methods.
Teaching Philosophy:

We believe that building good problem-solving skills is as (if not more) important than knowing lots of theorems. As such, although the course will cover a considerable amount of material, the main emphasis will be on building problem-solving intuition and training students to think creatively when faced with classes of problems they’ve never seen before.

Class Participation:

Students are expected to actively participate in class. We will employ the Socratic method, which is a cooperative dialogue between the students and teacher to stimulate critical thinking. Students will also collaborate with classmates while solving challenging problems.

Curriculum:

The course curriculum is owned and copyright by CyberMath Academy. The class material is composed of unique blends of problems hand-picked from prestigious competitions from around the globe, along with many historical problems and fascinating puzzles.
