**New Math 2 Class 2023 fall**

** Curiculum**

The class will focus heavily on building up numbers, to the hundreds, and then the thousands, with the concept of 10 hundred making a thousand. Multiplication and division of facts up to 5 will be covered. The idea of a fraction, as an equal part of some whole, is introduced, and simple geometric figures are introduced. Telling time, and units of measurement (length, weight, capacity), are studied, and graphs, simple numerical sequences. The main stress in this class is learning to take apart a word problem, not just doing the procedure, but figuring out what we need to do – multiply? divide? Many word problems on all topics will be done all year. The concepts of “more” and “less,” are not always easy: What is the difference between the statements, “2 more than 6 is ______” vs. “6 is _________more than 2.” This idea will be developed, going into larger numbers as we progress.

**Why do we promote the Singapore math system**

We advocate for the Singapore math system because this math system teaches a model approach (visual representation of the given information) to the solution of the multi-step word problems. In addition to the model approach, it employs many other carefully crafted strategies such as supposition and restate and replace, systematic listing, all targeting the same goal: teach children to think spatially and logically at very early ages.

**What math resources do we use**

Challenging Word problems series of books, Brain Math volume 1, Beast Academy series of practice books, Unleash Math Olympian in You, beginner’s level.

**How do we engage students in the process of learning **

We encourage children to make sense of problems, to persevere in solving them, to reason abstractly and quantitatively, we also engage them in a group discussion and in a critique of the reasoning of others.

** **

**Schedule:**

**Saturdays: 9:30-10:45 am**

**Homework Hour: Thursdays 7:30-8:30 pm **

**Start date: Sep 9th**

We will work with numbers, to the 10,000s, place; multiplication, and division of 3-digit by 2-digit numbers, deepening understanding of fractions, including addition and subtraction of mixed numbers, and multiplication of fractions by fractions and whole numbers; the focus of our winter semester will be decimals and students will learn to multiply decimals by 10, 100 and 100, and do 2-digit multiplications, we will also study the topics of ratio, percentage, angles in a triangle and quadrilateral and units of measurement. Word problems will be given on all of these topics, both how to do them, and deciding *what *we need to do.

**Math 7 Advanced Curriculum:**

** The placement test is required to join this class.**

This course is taught in 2 semesters. It begins in September with advanced learning of Rate and Ratio, Percent, Conversion of repeating decimals into fractions and reverse, Operations with roots. It continues through the second semester with Angles, Perimeter and Area of all types of polygons, Pythagorean Triples and special triangles, Data Analysis, Permutations, and combinations. Completion of homework is required.

In addition, students prepare for and participate in Math Olympiad, MOEM contest for grades 6-8. MOEM is given in class 5 times a year. We give MOEM every 3rd week of November, December, January, February, and March.

**New Math 7b **

We will develop techniques of PreAlgebra – exponents, distributing, the algebraic substitution of a value, and very quickly move into Algebra, solving simple equations and inequalities, and forming linear equations. Algebraic proportions and ratios will be covered. Additionally, geometry will be further developed, with harder area, perimeter, volume, surface area, and angles in a triangle.

The topics of rate, ratio, percentage, and speed will be done at a deeper level.

**Algebra 2 (Former Geometry Class)**

This is a class for students who have completed Algebra 1 and Geometry in high school. It covers many difficult topics including polynomials (the remainder and factor theorems), the fundamental theorem of algebra, exponential and logarithmic functions; trigonometric identities, equations graphs and functions, matrices, probability, and sequences are also covered. Basic topics from Algebra 1 will be briefly reviewed at the beginning of the class.
