Using the Challenging Word Problems book from Singapore Math, the class will cover many topics and the students will learn various important skills that show up in 1st, 2nd, and 3rdgradeMost weeks will have homework, but it will not be more difficult than what we do in class. Additionally, we will have a Google Drive folder where we will have a collection of the classwork and class notes as well as the homework. We will also have riddles and fun math problems each class. 

Homework will be required for this course and will be assigned weekly as a check for the students. Additionally, the classwork and class notes will be attached with each week’s homework, as a way for students to have something to look back on for their week’s work.

The topics that will be covered:

  • patterns
  • place values
  • word problems
  • basic multiplication and division
  • 2D and 3D shapes
  • area
  • perimeter
  • other visual topics
  • Additionally, we will cover topics such as variables and we will introduce equations and their useful applications in Olympiad math problems.
