​The course should only be taken by students who are planning on taking the exam in January 2021 and who want to get a head start on building the foundations necessary to succeed on the Hunter Entrance Exam. We will cover the three sections of the exam: Reading, Writing, and Math.

The Reading portion will include reading comprehension of high-level (~8th grade) fiction. It will mainly feature works from the turn of the 20th century. The writing will focus on writing a strong 5-paragraph personal essay within time constraints. The Math will focus on creative problem solving and cover a range of topics from basic algebra and geometry to probability and pattern recognition. The math will feature problems similar to those seen on statewide Math contests.

Since this course is for 5th graders, it will focus first on introducing all of these concepts before moving on to mastering them, which will take a significant amount of time and work. The course will be focused and serious with homework assigned each week that must be completed. Parents should make sure students enter the course with a serious commitment to it. Students should expect an hour of homework per week.
