“This course was very fun and made math easy. The teacher is encouraging and helped me understand some things I didn’t know before. I strongly recommend this class to others.”

“This class is so fun. It’s a little challenging, so if you are a 5th grader craving a challenge it’s perfect! I love how there were games at the end of each chapter and breakout rooms where you work on math problems with a smaller number of classmates. At first it might be a little intimidating, but it really is so fun!”

“This class prepared me very well for middle school math. The class time was thorough, and I always felt like the teacher covered new concepts in a way I could understand and practice in class before completing the homework. I enjoyed the breakout rooms and solving problems with my classmates.”
