In How to Read A Book, Van Doren and Mortimer talk about four main levels of reading: elementary reading, inspectional reading, analytical reading, and syntopical reading.
Analytical reading goes beyond elementary reading (putting sounds and words together to discover surfacelevel meaning) and inspectional reading (systematic skimming and superficial reading) to the point where the student begins to understand the book and the author's views on the subject. From this point, the students will be better able to tackle the syntopic reading skills that will enable them to thrive in higher levels of academia.
In this class, students will:
(1) Practice Elementary Reading
(2) Learn Inspectional Reading (systematic skimming, superficial reading)
(3) Learn Analytical Reading (classifying, summarizing, relating the part to whole and vice versa, and defining the problem that the author has articulated)

Each term we practice many genres of writing. Each genre builds different skills such as building attention to word choice with poetry and attention to descriptive details with science writing.
Meanwhile "guided" writing is highly supported, and enables students to produce complete writing that is wellstructured.
We will use the https://stonesoup.com/ website for inspiration, submit writing for publication, and if all goes as planned, we will do some publishing of our own.

This course offers a criticalcreative reading and annotating path to good composing practices at upper secondary and tertiary stages of learning. It aims to support your development of rhetorical strategies, literary analysis and critical composing practices.
You will learn the kinds of critical thinking needed to make choices – choices of creative purpose and the diction, detail, imagery, and syntax to fulfill it. You will learn the questions to ask to develop a research question and a tenable thesis statement. You will be given sources to support your learning to summarize, quote, cite and reference properly. You will read different types of critical essays that offer various types of claims and wellsupported arguments, all to support your understanding of how you may shape your essay. You will increase your vocabulary, understanding of logical, ethical and emotional fallacies to avoid and your confidence in your capacity to essay various types of critical tasks.
Though the focus of the class will be on composing various types of essays required by AP and IB Diploma Programs, several of those types pertain to SAT essay writing, such as the AP rhetorical analysis essay and IB literary commentary. Preparation for those, including annotating text and various prewriting approaches can support SAT test takers to prepare for writing and essay well.
Each Essay Level and Grammar has two years worth of skill content. A student can take this level for two years without repeating content!

Prerequisites: Completion of Singapore Math levels 2B or Beast Academy 2D
There are 4 books in Beast Academy Level 3: 3A, 3B, 3C, 3D for a oneyear curriculum. We have finished the 3A book in Summer. This class will start from 3B and then continue to book 3C in the Fall term, with about 12week of class. After completion of this course, students should join the BA Math 3CD in the winter/spring to finish the 3C and 3D books.
 BA Level 3A covers shapes, skipcounting, and perimeter, and area.
 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.
Beast Academy is published by Art of ProblemSolving as an introduction to their rigorous middle school and high school textbooks. It's a comprehensive curriculum for grades 25. Each level consists of a Guide book (a fullyillustrated textbook written in an engaging, comicbook 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 in applying mathematics to various situations.
The materials cover core fundamentals and then present these fundamentals at a deeper and more challenging level than a typical elementaryschool 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 nontrivial open questions that real mathematicians work on.

This Math Competition class for grades 46 will focus on learning and practicing problemsolving skills with the materials from all the following 3 contests. Students enrolled in this class will be invited to the online adaptive learning system for the Math League contest.
Math Olympiad stimulates enthusiasm and a love for mathematics. It teaches strategies for problemsolving and developing mathematical flexibility in solving problems.
Math League expands on basic math concepts taught in schools by using more challenging questions and word problems, requiring students to use critical thinking to complete each question accurately and in a timely manner. All questions must be finished in the allotted time, and due to this constraint, the course focuses on practical strategies to quickly and accurately answer these types of questions.
Math Kangaroo is a great way to introduce elementary school students to the world of competitive math. It is an interactive, prizebased competition consisting of puzzles and logictype problems. Math Kangaroo is open to students in grades 1  12; the competition offers 24 problems to be solved within 75 minutes for grades 15 and 30 questions for students in grades 5 and up.

MathCounts is a national middle school mathematics competition that builds problemsolving skills and fosters achievement through four levels of fun, inperson "bee" style contests. It provides engaging math programs to middle school students to build confidence and improve attitudes towards math and problemsolving. This class mainly works on the school and regional level of MathCounts problems.
The American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) 8 is a 25question, 40minute, multiplechoice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problemsolving skills. The contest is held in November every year and for students in grades 8 and below.
This class is designed to learn the common problemsolving strategies for both competitions and also working on the previous years of competition for practice. By the end of the class, students will have been exposed to hundreds of MathCounts/AMC 8 test questions to help them to succeed.
The focus of this class is on testtaking strategies and critical thinking skills. Most students have the basic knowledge they need to take the competition, so our philosophy is to help students in the other requirements of the competition, namely, accuracy and speed. The testtaking strategies taught in this class will help students not only in the competitions but also in the future for taking other tests inside and outside of school (such as the SAT and ACT).
Prerequisites: Students have completed AGS I or Algebra I. For great achievements in the competitions, students find that AoPS Algebra class helps a lot along with this competition class.
Note: The class materials used for this class are not repeated in 2 years. So students may join this class multiple times in 2 years to refine their competition skills.

Algorithms are the soul of computing. Algorithmic thinking, unlike the very young electronic machinery it brings alive, is rooted in ancient mathematics. It can be roughly described as creating "recipes" (well defined sequences of computational steps) for getting "things" (computational problems specifying an inputoutput relation) "successfully" (correctly) "done" (in finite steps and time).
Algorithm design and analysis provide the theoretical backbone of computer science and are a must in the daily work of the successful programmer. The goal of this course is to provide a solid background in the design and analysis of the major classes of algorithms.
In this course, students will develop ability to articulate processes for solving problems and to implement those processes efficiently within their programming. Students will learn to design algorithms for searching, sorting, and optimization and apply them to answer practical questions.The expected outcome of this class:
Instructor: Peng Lin
Students will be more confident to solve a lot of ACSL Junior/Senior level problems and USACO Bronze level problems, and be able to solve some problems which are equivalent to the silver level from USACO,

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 collegelevel computer science course. AP Computer Science A is meant to be the equivalent of a firstsemester 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 highlevel, classbased, objectoriented programming language that is designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It is a generalpurpose 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.AP Computer Science A  Fundamental and Advanced Concepts in Java

Team meetings are held for 8 hours each week, with tuition at $480 per month, billed from November through March for a total of five months. Meetings on Wednesdays and Fridays will concentrate on preparing for the picoCTF competition, while the Sunday session will focus on learning new concepts. Students may also have the option to only attend the Sunday session. The tuition for Sunday sessions only will be prorated to $300/month.
This Cybersecurity team is a project within the FutureLink program for selected high school students. In this school year, the team will focus on preparing for the picoCTF competition in March 2025, starting skillbuilding sessions with a professional cybersecurity coach. After the competition, the team may engage in an AIpowered cybersecurity project or a social impact initiative over the summer to further strengthen their cybersecurity skills. In the next school year, the team members will have the options to participate in both the CyberPatriot and picoCTF competitions.
In fields like computer science, theory can only take you so far. Handson work and practical application of your knowledge is the best way to get a better understanding of the subject. As a high school student, participating in computer science competitions can offer such invaluable handson experience. Not only will you test your knowledge but also hone your skills and give you a simulation of realworld challenges. One such wellreputed competition is the picoCTF.
PicoCTF is an annual cybersecurity competition designed for students. Its mission is to offer a handson learning experience in a gamified environment, covering various aspects of cybersecurity in the process. It was launched in 2013 by students of Carnegie Mellon University and has since then been hosted by the university, going on to include over 39,000 participants. The competition has options for middle, high school, and college students.CTFs are a great way to apply cybersecurity knowledge in a practical setting, and to learn new skills. Participants are exposed to realworld cybersecurity challenges, which can help them develop analytical thinking and problemsolving skills. CTFs require participants to work together to solve complex problems, so it promotes teamwork, communication, and strategic thinking, fostering personal growth and satisfaction.
The CyberPatriot competition is recognized as both highly competitive and prestigious within the realm of cybersecurity education. Annually attracting over 25,000 student participants from across the United States, the contest exemplifies excellence and challenge, with fewer than 1% of these competitors advancing to the finals. The distinction of reaching this stage is a big accomplishment, and finalists will receive an allexpensespaid trip to Maryland. Finalists will also have the opportunity to compete for scholarship money.
Once we receive your application for the team, we will schedule an interview. If you have any additional questions about the program, please feel free to reach out for more information by calling or texting 5039152956.

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 problemsolving 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 20202021 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.

We are sponsoring the Oregon Math Circle ARML team meetings, which take place once a month on Saturdays from October to March. The Annual Oregon Math Circle ARML teams' local competition will be hosted in April.
The 2025 National ARML Competition will be held in May 2025. We anticipate opening registration in March 2025, with a registration deadline in late of April.
The American Regions Mathematics League (ARML), is an annual, national high school mathematics team competition held simultaneously at four locations in the United States: the University of Iowa, Penn State, University of Nevada, Reno, and the University of Alabama in Huntsville.^{[1]} Past sites have included San Jose State University, Rutgers University, UNLV, Duke University, and University of Georgia.
Teams consist of 15 members, which usually represent a large geographic region (such as a state) or a large population center (such as a major city). Some schools also field teams. The competition is held in June, on the first Saturday after Memorial Day.
In 2022, 120 teams competed with about 1800 students.^{[2]}
ARML problems cover a wide variety of mathematical topics including algebra, geometry, number theory, combinatorics, probability, and inequalities. Calculus is not required to successfully complete any problem, but it may facilitate solving the problem more quickly or efficiently. While part of the competition is shortanswer based, there is a cooperative team round, and a proofbased power question (also completed as a team). ARML problems are harder than most high school mathematics competitions.

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 problemsolving 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.

The AIME competition is scheduled in February, 2025 for the school year of 20242025. This class will help students to prepare for the test in the Fall, while they may be already confident in AMC 10/12 tests to qualify for AIME
American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME) is a multiple choice exam. The questions in AIME are roughly in order of increasing difficulty. The early questions are much easier than olympiad questions.
Any student who scores in the top 2.5% on the AMC 10, or in the top 5% on the AMC 12 is invited to take the 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 .)
If you took the AMC 10, you'll compete in the USA Junior Mathematical Olympiad (USAJMO). Students who took the AMC 12 will compete in the USA Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO). The top roughly 200 participants from AMC 12 and AIME qualify for the USA Mathematics Olympiad (USAMO), while the top roughly 200 participants from the AMC 10 and AIME qualify for the USA Junior Mathematics Olympiad (USAJMO).
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 problemsolving skills.
