This math curriculum is designed in a way that we wish we had when we were kids. It teaches kids how to think critically and understand the concepts behind the math calculations they’re performing. Engaging illustrations keep kids coming back for more, even as they grapple with some of the most rigorous math problems available anywhere.
The name Competitive Kids STEM indicates our intention of preparing students for the contests. Considering this we are making it mandatory for our students to participate in math competitions. To simplify the process, we will cover the cost of the following contests for all our students as long as these contests are available online.
Canadian National Math League (CNML)
Mathematical Olympiads for Elementary & Middle Schools (MOEMS) - 5 Tests spread over the course
Canadian Math Summer Contest (CMSC)
We are not limited to these contests. We will provide additional opportunities for the students to participate in the contests. High-performing students will be selected for the team contests such as Berkely Mini Math Tournament, Purple Comet etc.
Full Year Program starting In September 2020 for kids in grades 5-6.
Students are expected to know the concepts we cover in Math Problem Solving 1. We will review these topics in the first 2-3 weeks. We will also provide material for students to practice themselves.
Geometry: Perimeter and Area of 2D shapes like triangles, quadrilaterals, squares, rectangles, understanding and measuring angles, parallel and perpendicular Arithmetic: Advanced addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, distributive property, the order of operations, Integers Basics, Decimals Basics Number Theory: Exponents, Understanding of perfect squares and basic exponents, computing powers, Basic factoring, prime numbers, divisibility tests Algebra: Variables- What is “n” and simple equations, simplifying equations, fractions
Core Concepts: Review of Polygons, Area and Perimeter review, 3D Solids
Enrichment: Volume and Surface Area, Platonic Solids, Painted Cubes and Challenges
