Classes
Elementary School: Math Olympiad (grades 45)
This class will introduce elementary school students to a wide variety of math problems and problemsolving strategies beyond traditional school math.
We emphasize critical thinking and help students develop skills crucial for solving more complex problems at the middle school level.
We are inviting enthusiastic and curious fourth and fifth graders who are interested in solving unusual problems, puzzles, and brainteasers, and who are ready to get serious about math in a fun and challenging environment.
Topics Sample
 Introducing the Graph Theory: Konigsberg Bridges
 IQ Math: Problems and Strategies
 ChickenandRabbit Problems
 ExcessandShortage Problems
 ComparisonandReplacement Problems
Topics Sample
Introduction to Equations
Middle School: Math Olympiad and AMC 8 (grades 68)
The purpose of this classes is to increase students’ interest in learning mathematics, stimulate their logical reasoning skills, and expand students’ ability to think critically in different areas of life.
In these classes, middle school students will have the opportunity to explore the most important concepts in Algebra, Geometry, Number Theory, and Combinatorics at a deep level.
Students will also develop strong problem solving skills by working on fun competition style problems as they get ready for higherlevel math in school and beyond.
Sample Topics
 Combinations and Permutations
 The Sum and The Product Rules of Counting
 Counting Theorems
 Using Lists, Charts, Diagrams, Formulas, and Theorems for Counting
 Using Counting Principles to Solve Probability Problems
Sample Problem:
Using Area of Circle Formula (taken from AMC 10 Test)
Circles A, B, and C each have radius 1. Circles A and B share one point of tangency. Circle C has a point of tangency with the midpoint of AB. What is the area inside circle C but outside circle A and circle B?
