Credentials

Our Advanced Math Students aced PSAT Math with a 99th percentile (most getting a full score), with zero dedicated preparation for PSAT.

100% of our Advanced Math 9th graders aced the Pre-Calculus CDM (Credit by Demonstrated Mastery), allowing them to skip Pre-Calculus and go straight to AP Calculus.

In Competition Math, our team of 5th graders emerged as the highest scoring JV team in the 2019 December - Charlotte Tri-Mathlon, while competing with 18 of the best middles schools from the greater Charlotte area. One of our then 5th grade students was the top individual scorer in JV. Charlotte Tri-Mathlon is a MathCounts style competition for middle school students, hosted every year by Community House Middle.

In another Competition Math event (MaPP), the same 5th grader team placed 4th out of around 12 middle school and high school teams. The top 4 teams differed by 1 point with each other.

Our students have been consistent top scorers in elementary school Math Olympiad (#1 in school) and Math Kangaroo (top 5, top 10, top 20 national rank)

Program Details

The exciting world of Competition Mathematics can often be classified into theory building and/or problem solving. Of course all mathematicians solve problems, while only a few are great theory builders. Theory building involves developing repeatable solution strategies that can be applied in problem solving and the building of structures that enable us to see patterns out of what appears to be chaos.

This Competition Math classes take students in an exciting journey full of theory-building AND problem solving enrichment. It is designed to encourage children to embrace problem solving as an exciting and uplifting social activity.

  • Level1 (Grades 3 - 5): MOEMS (Math Olympiad), Math Kangaroo
  • Level2 (Grades 4 - 8): MathCounts, AMC 8, AMC 10.
