Math for the Champions! Are you ready to take your Math skills to the next level? Prepare for competition? This class is for you.

 

We are looking for:

  • Competitive Students (1st - 8th grade) who ❤️Math
  • Awesome Math 📈Teachers 👋

We are here to show you that MATH = FUN.

We encourage academic excellence in mathematics and prepare students to compete in the Kangaroo Math contest. The contest problems are provocative, require great deal of attention and creative thinking, and cover interesting mathematical concepts. They aim to show the beauty of mathematics and, thus, increase the appreciation of mathematics. We believe many children are not challenged enough in the school system. This is why we offer mathematics enrichment programs accessible to all children. Even challenging mathematics can be taught in an interesting and fun way!

In this class, you will learn how to think. You will learn how to learn. You will learn how to tackle any problem.

Program Highlights

  • A certificate from RUF to recognize your skills and success

  • Improved thinking, analyzing and problem solving skills

  • Making new friends and having fun

Curriculum: Kangaroo Math 1-8 Grade Competition Level.

Trust us, this Math is fun, you will find it both challenging and engaging.

Mihai has been teaching Mathematics and Computer Science as a volunteer for 7 years. As a teenager in Romania, he grew up loving Mathematics, and his teachers inspired him and changed his life forever. Today, he dedicates his life to educating and inspiring people, especially young kids, to be the best version of themselves, by learning something new every day. 
  • Each set of problems that we will be solving is split into 3 categories: easy, medium, difficult. Therefore, everyone will be able to solve at least some of the problems every time. Kangaroo problems are mostly logical, and they do not require any specific method. This being said, we will not repeat what is being taught in class. Our teaching will focus on the ability to solve real-world problems.

  • We will be using the last 25 years of Kangaroo tests, for the 3-4 grade level. Each test is split into 3 categories: easy, medium, difficult (3,4, and 5 point problems). A demo set of what these problems look like can be found here.
