Description

Has your grade 6 student been successfully studying math with the acclaimed Singapore Math curriculum? If so, this is the course that gets your student comfortably ready for Pre-Algebra, and strong students can even go straight to Algebra from this course. The goal of this course is to develop student’s mathematical problem solving skills both in practical and abstract concepts and to prepare students for higher level mathematics and science courses. The curriculum used in this course presents concepts in a way that moves from concrete to pictorial to symbolic. Reasoning, finding a pattern, mental math, and applying concepts are emphasized throughout this course. In addition, teacher-led discussion and group work facilitate student discovery, and develop an appreciation and wonder for mathematics. Topics covered include: algebraic expressions; negative numbers; solving equations; graphing functions; add/subtract/multiply/divide fractions and decimals; percentages; ratio; proportion; rate; speed; geometry (including circles, angles, volume, and constructions); mean/median/mode, probability; and more. This course is the capstone of the TPS Accelerated Math program, and provides thorough preparation for TPS Pre-Algebra, Algebra and honors-level math courses.

“We have loved the Math Accelerated program for our younger students. The classes are engaging, fun and move at a great pace to help the kids remain focused. My daughter went from hating math to loving math during her year in Math Accelerated 6. Problems went from being a struggle to being a fun puzzle to work out. Having had such a good experience with the program, we put our youngest in Math Accelerated 4. He also had a great experience, looks forward to class and has made great strides in his mathematical understanding.”

“This class really helped me grasp the concepts that I needed. I used to think that math was so hard and I would never need it, but it turns out that you need math for everything you could ever do from being an artist to an actor to even a photographer. This class helped me to see that math isn’t an annoying subject that everyone has to take, but it is a fun tool that is essential to your life. The teacher was great and made learning the different methods of math enjoyable and easy through games and fun websites. I would totally recommend this class for your student!”
