List of 4 items.

  • Math Institute: Middle School Math Series

    This course is developed with fifth and sixth graders in mind. The primary focus of this series is competency with whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. Students will be exposed to challenging problems based on addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Teachers will use a variety of methods to keep this course fun, including problem solving, games, computer applications, and real-life situations. Students will be assessed on the first day of class to tailor the class to each child's specific needs. Sessions are one week in length but can be progressive, so participation in multiple sessions will provide further in-depth instruction in these topics.

    The Summer Math & Writing Institute pairs one math and one writing class for each participant. The tuition includes both courses.

  • Math Institute: Pre-Algebra Series

    This course is designed for students who will be taking pre-algebra in the coming year. Proficiency with whole numbers, fractions, and decimals is required. Students will extend their skills in these areas to include applications involving negative numbers and variables. Additional topics may include variables and expressions, equations and word problems, ratio, proportion and percent, and geometry. Students will be assessed on the first day of class to ensure that each child is challenged at the best level. This course is appropriate for students entering Hockaday's Integrated Math I course. Each session is one week in length but can be progressive, so participation in multiple sessions will provide further in-depth instruction and a great head start on the upcoming school year.

  • Math Institute: Algebra and Beyond Series

    This course is designed for students who have successfully completed a pre-algebra course and will be enrolled in an Algebra I, Geometry, or Algebra II course in the fall. This course is also appropriate for students entering Hockaday's Integrated Math II and Integrated Math III courses. In this course, beginning algebra students will get an introduction to topics typically taught in an Algebra I course. More advanced students will review and reinforce their Algebra I skills to be better prepared for more advanced math courses. Students must be proficient and fluent with negative numbers to be successful in this course. Course topics may include variables and expressions, simplifying polynomials, equation solving, graphing linear equations, factoring, solving quadratic equations, simplifying radicals, word problems, and more. Students will be assessed on the first day of class to determine the best level of challenge needed. This is a great way to get ahead in Algebra I or to review Algebra I topics before taking more rigorous math courses. Enroll in multiple sessions to strengthen skills and understanding of these abstract algebraic topics.
