Help your child prepare for the next grade level by enrolling them in this class that will teach paragraph writing, short essays, sentence structure and penmanship. Students will become familiarized with personal narratives, expand on persuasive writing and penmanship, all in a fun and creative atmosphere.
Students will learn concepts to build upon their knowledge and strengthen their math skills. Concepts that will be covered in this course are: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division equations, place value, round numbers, decimals, fractions, general coordinates, bar graphs, circle, perimeter, volume, area, and measurement. This course will foster confidence in math.
This class is designed for students entering grades 6 through 8. The emphasis will be on the writing process–brainstorming, prewriting, drafting, editing and publishing. Students will explore the various types of writing from biographical to expository, with time to present their creations!
A nurturing and fun environment helps students 7-10 develop a foundation of coding, robotics and circuit building skills. With a maximum of six students per instructor, children enjoy a personalized and self-paced learning experience as they develop an understanding of complex engineering concepts. Teams will collaborate on building and programming LEGO robotic models, as well as models of working electrical circuits with Snap Circuits. This is an ideal course for kids who enjoy problem solving through hands-on play and experimentation.
Designed for 11-13-year-olds, this introduction to pre-algebra is a great review and preparation for junior high math. Topics will include a review of elementary mathematics and principles, an introduction to signed numbers, beginning rules for algebraic evaluations, and algebraic equations.
This class for 12-14-year-olds is preparation for an Algebra I course. Topics include variables and algebraic equations, real numbers, integers, evaluating expressions, and solving equalities and inequalities. Using formulas to solve equations, and consecutive integer problems will also be covered. Upon completion of this class, students will have a basic knowledge of problem solving strategies.
In this class, 13-16-year-olds will be introduced to Geometry concepts. Topics will include geometric definitions and constructions, congruence and measurement, inductive and deductive reasoning skills. Students will learn to construct proofs using definitions, postulates and theorems focusing on triangle congruence relationships.
This class is designed for 14-18 year olds who have completed Algebra I or have a solid knowledge base to build upon. Topics will include a review of Algebra I, advanced polynomials, rational equations and negative exponents to use with radical functions. Students will gain a base knowledge of Algebra II and get a head start for the fall!
