Advanced K-12 Math Curriculum

Our program goes beyond the normal school curriculum. We prepare our students for and expose them to advanced concepts from Algebra, Geometry, Number Theory, Combinatorics, and other branches of high mathematics. Our curriculum follows books by Beast Academy, Art of Problem Solving, Singapore Math, Math Mammoth, and others.

Math Competition Prep

We actively encourage math competition participation among our students. Lessons are supplemented with engaging problems from math competitions like Math Kangaroo, Noetic, and other Math Olympiads. Our students participate in these and other math tournaments, such as MOEMS and MathCounts, bringing home fantastic results!

Groups Matched by Skill Level

While EMC students learn, practice, and master everything that is needed for their current grade level, students are grouped by knowledge and skill level, assessed during initial and ongoing evaluations. Our long-term students usually advance to learning material 1-2 grade levels above their school grade level.

Collaborative Environment

Instructors keep multi-directional communication going throughout the lessons. Students learn teamwork and leadership skills as they teach, inspire each other, and rise to challenges together. The environment allows them to safely examine their own thought process, discover strengths and weaknesses, make mistakes, and ask for help when they need it.

Groups and Levels

Knowledge and skill are much more important to us than a student’s age or grade level. We place a great deal of time and importance on creating groups that are balanced in academic abilities and social behavior.

Circles

Students in circles 0-5 are taught Beast Academy curriculum. Circles do NOT correlate with school grade level. For example, Circle 1 groups will consist primarily of first-graders, but some students might be slightly younger or older.

Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry and Pre-Calculus

These courses are for children of any age, whose evaluations show readiness to learn the Art of Problem Solving curriculum, which is our primary curriculum for students who have completed Beast Academy 5 or equivalent.

The courses build foundational skills (e.g. number sense, skip counting, geometry) and are designed to prepare kindergarteners and first-graders for Beast Academy books.

What to Expect

  • Instruction starts August 22nd 2022, runs for 37 weeks, and ends in June. Students can join the program at any time.

  • Groups of 4-6 students meet online once a week for 55 minutes.

  • Lessons are conducted in a relaxed, conversational manner, rather than the traditional one-way lecture format, and consist of games and puzzles that develop critical thinking, logical reasoning, spatial reasoning, and arithmetic skills.

  • EMC provides all required classwork and homework materials in PDF form via Google Classroom. We also provide a list of recommended supplemental resources, such as workbooks and physical manipulatives, for those who want more!

  • Older students, attending school grade 2 and higher, can request access to a discounted EMC-administered Beast Academy online account, which they can use to study independently.
