Welcome to Martha School
Martha Green Leaf Academy 2013 Fall Math Classes
Dear Students and Parents,
Welcome back to the Fall Semester. The first fall class starts on Sunday, September, the 22nd.
Click Annoucement for detailed Fall Class Schedule.
Martha Green Leaf Academy offers, among others, two categories of Math classes: Singapore Math classes and Mathcounts/AMC classes.
The Singapore Math classes 1-6 are to help elementary school students to improve their Math skills. We will study different areas/topics in elementary Mathematics. Singapore Math work books will be used. Homeworks will be assigned every week. Teachers will teach students Math skills in class, help students with their homework problems, etc. All classes are taught in English.
Mathcounts/AMC classes are designed to improve middle/high school students their Math skills. We are not topics oriented but instead prolems oriented. We may do a quick review of related theories when we are working on a prolem. We encourage students to review related areaes themselfs before the classes. Homeworks will be assigned every week for students to work out during the week. Even though students are not supposed to solve all assigned problems, they are supposed to review related areas of the assigned problems. Teachers will quickly review related areas and theories and formulas related to the problems, go through solutions and solution strategies in the Sunday class. Each class is material oriented but will try to make sure students in class understand solutions to a few problems every class so that they can build up Math skills in the long run. All classes are taught in English. Classes difficult levels and materials are defined below. Students are encouraged to be a little conservative when register these classes (for example if a student is not sure Level I or Level II, he/she better choose the Level I which most likely is a better choice).
Mathcounts/AMC level I: Mathcounts preparation materials such as workout and warm-up problem sets.
Mathcounts/AMC level II: Mathcounts Chapter test and AMC 8 problem sets.
Mathcounts/AMC level III: Mathcounts State test and AMC 10 problem sets.
Mathcounts/AMC level IV: Mathcounts National test, AMC 12, AIME, Olympiad problem sets.
