    This is a class for students who have thoroughly mastered addition and subtraction of numbers to 40 using vertical algorithms, as well as using mental calculation strategies. Students must know the multiplication table up to 5 and related division facts, have basic understanding of fractions and be able to solve simple word problems including problems which involve multiplication and division.


    We will continue on with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, paying special attention to mental calculation as well as we develop a deeper understanding of the place values. We will also learn how to find a number given a sum and a difference of two numbers and how to make a whole with fractions (with like denominators). We will learn how to solve problems with money, time and time intervals and other units of time. For further enrichment, students will be exposed to a number of puzzles, riddles and interactive activities to enhance their cognitive abilities.These enrichment lessons will help students develop deep feeling and understanding of numbers and include the following concepts and ideas: square and square numbers, random maze, experiments with triangles and quadrilaterals, magic wheel and secret codes, Pascal’s triangle and many more fun activities.

    Math 4 Curriculum

    To join the class students should have mastery of arithmetic through 3rd-grade topics.

        Place value to the hundred thousand and rounding large numbers will be developed.  The terms “factor” and “multiple,” and how they relate to multiplication and division, and multiplication of 2-digit by 2-digit numbers, and division of larger numbers are studied now.  We move further into the topic of fractions, including adding and subtracting of mixed numbers, with different denominators.  Fraction multiplication will be introduced, and a fraction as a part of the whole.  The second semester will see the four arithmetic operations with decimals, and how decimals relate to fractions. There will be many word problems requiring an understanding of these fraction and decimal concepts.  Mental calculation techniques will be studied all year.  Geometry will be developed further, with more complex problems on area and perimeter, and now the volume of cubes and cuboids.  Along with the heavy arithmetic program, students will study exciting topics to prepare them for Math Olympiads, which they’ll start taking this year for the first time.

    Grade 4

    Title: Number Theory and the Art of problem Solving

    Description of class: This course is designed for the advanced study of math. It is
    based on the Beast academy series of books for grade 4 and Challenging Word
    Problems book 4. Homework is required. Assessment is required.
    The main concepts are listed below:
    Number theory: Order of operations with rational numbers including rules for
    operations with exponents. Decoding cryptarithms and creating logic charts.
    Describing sequences and patterns.
    Art of problem solving methods: students continue to apply the methods they
    learned in previous years such as systematic listing, models, replace and restate
    with variables in order to solve complex word problems involved with multiples,
    factors and remainders, fractions, and decimals.
    Geometry: Symmetry, angles, polygons, area of polygons, and volume of cuboids.

    Math 5 Curriculum
    То join this class students should have mastery of arithmetic through 4th grade topics,

    Place Value to the millions place is now introduced, with thorough understanding of how the number is built up. Multiplication and division of larger numbers will be studied. Order of operations and properties of the number system (distributing) are included. The topic of fractions is deepened this year, with addition and subtraction of a group of fractions with different denominators, fraction divisions, fraction as part of the whole, and using fractions in conversion of units of measurement and other situations, such as area and perimeter. Mental calculation techniques will be developed all year. Angles in a triangle and quadrilateral, and composite areas now appear in the curriculum. Decimals, with multiplication and division, including by 10, 100 and 1000 are studied. The topics of percentage, averages, ratio and rate are now taught. Along with the heavy arithmetic program, students will study exciting topics to prepare them for Math Olympiads and other contests.

    Math 6 Curriculum

    To join this class, students must be proficient in all basic arithmetic operations of whole numbers, fractions and decimals, and have command of word problems of all topics studied to date (see description right below.)

    6th grade is the last year of elementary school arithmetic, and the year in which all topics studied up to now, and some new topics, are developed at a very deep level. The curriculum will include challenging word problems from topics of fractions and decimals, number work, percentage, ratio, distance-rate-time, averages, geometry, with complex area and perimeter and angle problems. Mental calculation techniques will be studied all year, including those involving fractions, decimals and percentages. Geometry continues, with more complex area and perimeter, and angles, parallel line relationships. This year also sees the beginning of PreAlgebra, with integers, exponents, distributing, forming and solving simple algebraic equations, and other topics. Along with the heavy arithmetic program, students will study exciting topics to prepare them for Math Olympiads, and other contests.

    The Art of creative writing encourages original and innovative ideas to flow from a child's imagination and come to life on paper. It also teaches children how to organize their thoughts and express themselves effectively. Some creative writing assignments can give students the opportunity to create characters, settings and plot while others allow them to write freely about their interests or simply about their everyday world.



    In this virtual creative writing class, students will join in small group read alouds from authors such as Shel Silverstein and Dr. Seuss, explore fun free write prompts, and participate in a collaborative book effort. Opportunities for illustration will also be provided. I look forward to working with budding writers and exploring the world that writing can be

    This course is for 4th-6th graders and will focus on ancient civilizations (Mesopotamia, Egypt, China, Greece, Rome, etc…) and their achievements and contributions to our modern world. 

    We will follow a school curriculum to guide the class in a chronological order and begin developing the students’ perspective and understanding of time and past events.

     Because there is more information than time, the course will focus on big picture ideas that require deeper thinking and understanding of the topics. We will use a variety of details (art, warfare, technology, philosophy, daily life) to address a larger function of those ancient civilizations and how they still impact us today.

    I am positive that every student has creative abilities and can be introduced to the artistic world.
    Like in any discipline it just takes time and patience.
    In our Art class we use pencils and markers, pastel and charcoal, watercolor and acrylic paint.
    We learn the important art definitions and styles, study how to draw animals and plants, transportation and people.
    We create different types of artworks: still life, portrait and landscape.
    Art History is a very important part of our Art class. We study World Art History as well as Russian Art History.
    If your child likes to express his feelings he/she can enjoy taking Art class and have fun through a very educational and interesting process!
