Math Olympiad Classes (Ages 5-6, 7-8, 9-10)

math olympiad

Develop a love of math and boost math grades! Math Olympiad allows students to shine while tackling challenging problems from previous competitions. We’ve designed our ongoing series of classes to improve math intuition, develop reasoning skills, and master strategies in creative problem solving.

Topics are age-appropriate, and students are introduced to new principles and topics each quarter. Courses can be taken in any order. Small classes of 12 students allow for ample individual feedback from expert instructors! The Math Olympiad Contest is not included with the class or camp.

Junior Math Olympiad (7-8)

Math Olympiad stimulates a student’s love for mathematics while introducing and sharpening analytical skills. Students learn and strengthen problem solving strategies through practice solving complex and challenging word problems. Strategies learned help students become flexible and creative when solving mathematical problems. As students work through problems and become more intuitive they begin to foster a joy and a thrill for successfully meeting the challenges that word problems provide. Developing these critical problem solving skills will enrich a child’s academic and personal life, the younger the child starts the better.
