Math 1  1  9:4510:30  n/a  Grade 2
This is a class for students who have thoroughly mastered addition and subtraction of numbers to 10 using number bond and number line strategies; We will continue on with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, paying special attention to mental calculation as well as using place value concept for numbers up to 20.
The teacher of this class is also going to teach some mental math strategies and engage students in visible thinking. The main idea is to help students develop deep feeling and understanding of numbers. 

Math new B (gr3  3  10:3511:35  Zoya Koza.  Fall 2019
This is a class for students who have thoroughly mastered addition and subtraction of numbers to 20 using mental calculation strategies; We will continue on with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, paying special attention to mental calculation as well as using place value concept (vertical algorithm) for numbers up to 100. Students will learn how to compare fractions by drawing models and on the number line. Students will be introduced to several strategies for solving multistep word problems such as model approach and guess and check. In addition, the teacher of this class is going to implement some challenging problems from the “Brain Maths” book and some other Olympiad sources. These enrichment lessons will help students develop deep feeling and understanding of numbers. 

Math new C( gr4  4  11:451:00  Zoya Koza.  Fall 2019 Math C (4)
This is a class for students who have thoroughly mastered addition/ subtraction of numbers to 1000 using vertical algorithm as well as using mental calculation strategies; have deep knowledge of place value; know multiplication table up to 12 and related division facts, can solve multistep word problems and have developed clear understanding of equivalent fractions and geometry of angles and polygons. In addition, this class is for students who have developed visible thinking skills as well as process skills such as supposition, restate and replace methods and other strategies described in the Process Skills level 3, model and heuristic (experimental) approach to problem solving.
The goal of this class is: continuous implementation of strategies described above reaching the level 4 of the Singapore math system. Level 4 is compatible only with the grade 5 of common core as well as other higherlevel mathematical thinking concepts.
Every month students will practice and take MOEM Olympiad test. 

Math new_A  2  9:3510:35  Slava Koza  Fall 2019 math A
This is a class for students who have thoroughly mastered addition and subtraction of numbers to 40 using vertical algorithm as well as using mental calculation strategies; know multiplication table up to 5 and related division facts; have basic understanding of fractions; can solve simple word problems including problems which involve multiplication and division.
We will continue on with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, paying special attention to mental calculation as well as developing deep understanding of a place value. We will also learn how to find a number given a sum and a difference of two numbers, how to make a whole with fractions with like denominators. We will learn how to solve problems with money, time and time intervals and other units of time.
The teacher of this class is also going to implement some of the successful lessons from Natasha Rozhkovskaya’s book “Math Circles for Elementary School Students”. These enrichment lessons will help students develop deep feeling and understanding of numbers and include the following concepts and ideas: Square and square numbers, Random Maze, Experiments with triangles and quadrilaterals, Magic wheel and secret codes, Pascal’s triangle and many more fun activities.
