Math Adventures – Grade 3-4 and 5-6 Students

Math Adventures is supported in part by the Canadian Mathematical SocietyCMS

The students will explore interesting and exciting mathematics, curious problems, discussing and solving problems on

  • Numbers
  • Patterns
  • Geometry
  • Logic
  • Math Games and Puzzles

The course is based on the knowledge and skills required by the regular math curriculum at the corresponding grade level, which will be enhanced and could be applied in non-standard problem-solving activities.

Each class will begin with an opening problem, followed by the homework review. After presentation of a lesson by instructors, time will be devoted to independent work.

Please keep in mind that we offer enrichment, and not remedial programs. Our classes are intended for the students who are already doing well in school math and would like to experience something more challenging and interesting.
