All  materials that will be used for this class are at least 1 year ahead of the math curriculum used in New Jersey day schools. Thus, the 6th graders are also welcomed to this class. However, all students accepted to this class must have some prior prepping in the Singapore Math System, specifically in the Art of Problems Solving curriculum presented in the series of Challenging word Problems books 1-4. In addition students must take the assessment test. Parents should not help and not all problems on the assessment must be solved in order to be accepted to this class. However, the student must explain her/his solution to each of at least 5 problem that they would choose to solve.
