This class will introduce elementary school students to a wide variety of math problems and problem-solving strategies beyond traditional school math. We emphasize critical thinking and help students develop skills crucial for solving more complex problems at the middle school level. We are inviting enthusiastic and curious fourth and fifth graders who are interested in solving unusual problems, puzzles, and brainteasers, and who are ready to get serious about math in a fun and challenging environment.

# Sample Topics

• Introducing the Graph Theory: Konigsberg Bridges
• IQ Math: Problems and Strategies
• Chicken-and-Rabbit Problems Excess-and-Shortage Problems
• Comparison-and-Replacement Problems

# Sample Problem

## Middle School: AMC 8 (grades 6-8)

The purpose of this classes is to increase students’ interest in learning mathematics, stimulate their logical reasoning skills, and expand students’ ability to think critically in different areas of life. Middle school students will have the opportunity to explore the most important concepts in Algebra, Geometry, Number Theory, and Combinatorics at a deep level. Students will also develop strong problem- solving skills by working on fun competition style problems as they get ready for higher-level math.

# Sample Topics

• Combinations and Permutations
• The Sum and The Product Rules of Counting
• Using Lists, Charts, Diagrams, Formulas, and Theorems for Counting
• Probability Problems

# Sample Problem

Circles A, B, and C each have radius 1. Circles A and B share one point of tangency. Circle C has a point of tangency with the midpoint of AB. What is the area inside circle C but outside circle A and circle B?
