ABOUT IVYCLIMBERS MATHEMATICS CLASSES
Our courses for elementary and middle school students expose them to the joy of mathematics. We fire students imagination and creativity with problems and concepts not covered in the public schools, such as number theory, probability and combinatorics.
Our program has been created for students to extend their knowledge and skills in mathematics and to immerse them in the mathematical culture. Our goal is to train students’ basic mathematical abilities, incorporate speed, expose them to more challenging problems, and get ready for more advanced math subjects in preparing them for the future American Math Competitions (AMCs).
Our program is an enrichment program. Students should not expect to place out of any courses in school due to courses they have taken with us. The intensity of mathematics is balanced by the fun of student participation in in-class-competition or regional math contests to which we will take our students.
Who applies to Ivyclimbers Math Classes?
Students who can multiply and divide are encouraged to apply to our beginning classes. We do not place students by age or grade level—we instead place them by their respective math abilities.
