This class will cover various topics that are typically covered in 5th, 6th, and 7th grade classrooms (and sometimes beyond these grades). We will discuss strategies to do Math Olympiad problems quickly and correctly and will practice with a few MOEM (Math Olympiad for Elementary and Middle School) problems as warm up each week. Besides the Olympiad questions, we will also do higher level algebra (graphing various equations, quadratic equations, polynomials, systems of equations, etc) that will show up later in the student’s math curriculums. Additionally, we will discuss modelling problems and functions among many other topics. We will also have riddles and fun math problems each class 

Homework will be required for this course and will be assigned every few weeks 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
