|Math Level 4 (MATHCOUNTS)|
Class DescriptionSRV Chinese School Math Olympiads / MATHCOUNTS program includes four levels of math classes. A pre-test or teacher's recommendation is required to enroll.
The purpose of the classes is to stimulate students' interest and enthusiasm for problem solving. Students will be exposed to challenging problems, interesting puzzles, and associated mathematics topics. They will work on past contest problems both individually and in groups. Throughout the class, the student will learn critical thinking skills and different problem solving strategies.
In these classes, we offer MOEMS. The students will participate in the annual National Math Olympiad Contests. Individual awards will be given out in May, including the Dr. George Lenchner Award for perfect scorers and the Math Olympiads Logo Trophies for the top scorers on each team.
The classes will be taught in English.
MATHCOUNTS (Math Level 4) is a competitive math class specially designed for advanced middle school students who have successfully completed the Math Olympiads level 3 class. With four levels of MATHCOUNTS competition materials - school, chapter, state, and national - the class provides students the extra incentive and perfect atmosphere to push themselves to achieve more in mathematics. The typical homework and class assignments consist of:
Sprint Round: This round tests speed and accuracy, allowing 40 minutes to solve 30 problems such that only the most capable students will complete all of the problems.
Target Round: This round features multi-step problems that engage students in mathematical reasoning and problem-solving processes.
Team Round: This round involves working in groups to develop teamwork.
Countdown Round: This round prepares students for the fast-paced, head-to-head competition.
The goals of this advanced math class are to help students further develop critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, to motivate and reward students by fostering teamwork and a competitive spirit, and to promote middle school mathematic achievements through fun and challenging MATHCOUNTS program.
