    (1) Practice Elementary Reading 

    (2) Learn Inspectional Reading (systematic skimming, superficial reading)

    • BA Level 3B covers multiplication and perfect squares.
    • BA Level 3C includes chapters on variables, division, and measurement.
    • BA Level 3D includes chapters on fractions, estimation, and area.

    This class will cover book 3A in Summer. Students who finish this class may continue to the book 3B in the Fall term. 

    Beast Academy is published by Art of Problem-Solving as an introduction to their rigorous middle school and high school textbooks. It's a comprehensive curriculum for grades 2-5. Each level consists of a Guide book (a fully-illustrated textbook written in an engaging, comic-book style) and a Practice book (a workbook providing hundreds of exercises, problems, puzzles, and games to reinforce the lessons from the Guide).

    The guides utilize many everyday contexts and visual representations to encourage children to think deeply and understand what they’re learning. This encourages a diminishment of rote learning and an increase of applying mathematics to various situations. 

    The materials cover core fundamentals and then presents these fundamentals at a deeper and more challenging level than typical elementary-school math curriculum. The problem sets are explicitly designed to help students develop the mental grit to handle AMC and Math Olympiad problems and later tackle the kind of non-trivial open questions that real mathematicians work on.

    The AMC 10/12 competition is scheduled in November, 2021 for the school year of 2021-2022. This class is help students to prepare for the test in Summer.

    The AMC 10 and AMC 12 are nationwide tests administered by the Mathematical Association of America that qualify you for the American Invitational Mathematics Exam (AIME). Only those with top scores will be invited to take the AIME. The MAA recommends 9th and 10th graders take the AMC 10, and 11th and 12th graders take the AMC 12. You can take the AMC 10 and/or 12 multiple times.

    The AMC 10 and AMC 12 each have 25 questions. You have 75 minutes for the entire exam. Note that you don't need to get all of the questions right to get a qualifying score. You just have to do better than most of the other students taking the exam! Keep that in mind as you come up with a strategy for the test.

    You need to be in the top 5% of scorers on the AMC 12 or the top 2.5% of scorers on the AMC 10 to qualify, so the vast majority of people who take the AMC exams don't qualify. But, if you do qualify, you can take the American Invitation Mathematics Examination, or AIME.

    If you do well on the AIME, you can qualify for the US Mathematical Olympiad. The top scorers from that competition then have the opportunity to train to be on the US team that competes at the International Math Olympiad. (You can find more info on this process over at the Mathematical Association of American website .)

    It's a long process to get to the IMO, and very few students make it that far. But even just taking the AIME can set you apart in the college admissions process, especially if you are interested in engineering programs. Along with a high GPA and strong SAT/ACT scores, taking the AIME is a way to signal to colleges you have superior math and problem-solving skills.

    This course will help students to be more ready for do well on AMC 10/12 tests. We will use customized materials for different topics in the competition and also use many previously AMC 10/12 questions both in class and for homework.

    AP Computer Science A
    Advanced Placement Computer Science A is an AP Computer Science course and examination offered by the College Board to high school students as an opportunity to earn college credit for a college-level computer science course. AP Computer Science A is meant to be the equivalent of a first-semester course in computer science. The AP exam currently tests students on their knowledge of Java. Java Programming Language is one of the most popular programming languages particularly for client–server web applications. Java is high-level, class-based, object-oriented programming language that is designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It is a general-purpose programming language intended to let programmers write once, run anywhere, meaning that compiled Java code can run on all platforms that support Java without the need for recompilation. Java applications are typically
    compiled to bytecode that can run on any Java virtual machine regardless of the underlying computer architecture.

    Chess is a classic game that develops spatial thinking and strategies and builds focused concentration. Often known as a game for the intellectually gifted, chess is the best sport to exercise the most important organ in our bodies: the brain. It promotes brain growth, raises your IQ, teaches planning and foresight, sparks your creativity, increases problem-solving skills, and optimizes memory improvement.

    This class will teach more about basic opening strategies and more advanced tactical tricks and patterns.
       The Summer session will start fresh, not just continue the 2020-2021 curriculum. We test the current skills for all students, integrate new students, and work on strategies and tactics for two main phases of the game. First we will all learn and practice a typical  chess opening. Second, we will focus on the key endgame patterns. This rewards pattern training and visualization skills.

    For the online classes, students will need to use a chess.com account in order to play chess during the class. Younger students can use ChessKid or other portals otherwise, but please have a regular chess.com account just for class. The instructor can observe all games at once. Another benefit from playing these games online is that the instructor can also comment on each student's games at some point during the course, and send those personal suggestions for improvement to the class.

    PSAT 8/9 and PreACT Reading/Writing - A Head Start

    The PSAT 8/9 tests the same skills and knowledge as the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, and PSAT 10—in a way that makes sense for eighth and ninth graders. It measures what they’re already learning, shows them whether they’re on track for college, and lets them know where they need the most improvement. That means students have time to tackle these areas long before they take the SAT.

    The PSAT 8/9 helps students determine what they need to work on most so that they’re ready for college when they graduate from high school—and it supports educators as they guide the way.

    PSAT 8/9 Test Prep - Reading/Writing

    Most of the middle schools or high schools ask 8th or 9th graders to take the PSAT 8/9 test in October, This class is for students going to 8th grade or 9th grade to prepare the PSAT 8/9 test. This is also a great class to help students to improve overall comprehensive reading and writing (English usage and grammar part) skills.  The class will help students become familiar with the test and learn the skills and tips for Evidence-Based Reading and Writing.

    This class is also good for PreACT reading/writing preparation. Here is the complete guide information for PSAT 8/9 from College Board: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/pdf/psat-8-9-student-guide.pdf

    Class Materials:
    We will use multiple resources for the class material such as Ivy Global PSAT 8/9 English and other customized materials. All class materials will be provided by e-copy via the class page in your Sunshine account.

    Students will get to know the tests and work on the required skills in the class. Students who already finished the fundeamental CogAt training in Winter/Spring term may join this class to continue refine and improve their CogAt skills.

    The student performance report for test readiness will be delivered to your Sunshine account at the end of the term.
