Why

Going deeper into Problem Solving allows students to develop a strategy mindset when they expand their thinking into multiple directions.

Math problems that students get in school are designed to teach concepts with repetition of many similar problems. Even if (as an example) a 6th grader takes up High School Math 1 (in school), they are still being taught concepts using problems that are not inherently challenging, they just learn concepts of higher Math levels but with very simple problems.

Our Advanced Math curriculum helps students expand on application of concepts into richer problem solving domains, requiring them to think differently about a solution.

With deeper problem solving aptitude, our Advanced Math students can learn any level Math (and other subjects) in a much shorter amount of time. They are able to achieve this because their mind has developed the strategic thinking needed to approach a concept from multiple directions. As a result they are able to take more number of rigorous courses (APs) in High School and excel without having to spend enormous amounts of time.

Credentials

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

Our Advanced Math 9th graders have aced the Math 1, Math 2, and Pre-Calculus CDM (Credit by Demonstrated Mastery), allowing them to skip those courses in High School and Middle School and advance.

All our Advanced Math students aced SAT with a Math Score of 780+ and a total score of 1500+.

A short video about our approach to Advanced Math Problem Solving

innovative approach

A proprietary curriculum rich in problem solving

Engaging classrooms where students are encouraged to analyze problems from different perspectives

Low volume homework but with content rich in problem solving that challenges students' thinking without being repetitive.

Our curriculum will challenge your child beyond grade level math but in a very engaging and collaborative teaching style that draws on their problem solving skills without the high pressure of homework.

Benefits your child may see

Increased confidence in embracing new math concepts with a higher likelihood of success in problem solving

Since they will be mastering many concepts ahead of time, they will need to dedicate much less time to school math, in order to excel. The time saved they can apply to other subject areas for school

They will develop the good habits of persistence, detail orientation, creative thinking that will have positive impact in all walks of their student lives
