2023 Winter/Spring Live Online Class

  • 01/13 to 06/09  38 Classes Wednesday,Friday 5:00pm-6:00pm $815/term No classes on Mar 22, 24, 29, 31 and May 26.Location: Online18

    Prerequisites: Completion of Singapore Math levels 2A or Beast Academy 2A.

    There are 4 books in Beast Academy Level 2: 2A, 2B, 2C, 2D. We have finished 2A book in Summer. This class will start from book 2B and then continue to 2C in the Fall term, with about 12-week of class. After completion of this course, students should join the BA Math 2CD in the winter/spring to finish the 2C book and start with 2D...

    • Beast Academy 2A includes chapters on place value, comparing, and addition. 
    • Beast Academy 2B includes chapters on subtraction, expressions, and problem-solving.
    • Beast Academy 2C includes chapters on measurement, strategies, and odds and evens.
    • Beast Academy 2D includes chapters on big numbers, algorithms, and problem solving

    Beast Academy is published by Art of Problem-Solving as an introduction to their rigorous middle school and high school textbooks. It's a comprehensive curriculum for grades 2-5. Each level consists of a Guide book (a fully-illustrated textbook written in an engaging, comic-book style) and a Practice book (a workbook providing hundreds of exercises, problems, puzzles, and games to reinforce the lessons from the Guide).

    The guides utilize many everyday contexts and visual representations to encourage children to think deeply and understand what they’re learning. This encourages a diminishment of rote learning and an increase in applying mathematics to various situations. 

    The materials cover core fundamentals and then present these fundamentals at a deeper and more challenging level than a typical elementary-school math curriculum. The problem sets are explicitly designed to help students develop the mental grit to handle AMC and Math Olympiad problems and later tackle the kind of non-trivial open questions that real mathematicians work on. 

    To ensure your child is a good fit for this class, you may have him or her take the online math assessment test at http://www.sunshineeliteeducation.com/assessment_test_list.php

    Note: Books in PDF will be uploaded to the students' class page before the term starts. You may also buy the textbooks at the group discount price on Sunshine's website via the Courses page.

    MathCounts is a national middle school mathematics competition that builds problem-solving skills and fosters achievement through four levels of fun, in-person "bee" style contests. It provides engaging math programs to middle school students to build confidence and improve attitudes towards math and problem-solving. This class mainly works on the school and regional level of MathCounts problems.

    The American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) 8 is a 25-question, 40-minute, multiple-choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem-solving skills. The contest is held in November every year and for students in grades 8 and below.

    This class is designed to learn the common problem-solving strategies for both competitions and also working on the previous years of competition for practice.  By the end of the class, students will have been exposed to hundreds of MathCounts/AMC 8 test questions to help them to succeed.

    The focus of this class is on test-taking strategies and critical thinking skills. Most students have the basic knowledge they need to take the competition, so our philosophy is to help students in the other requirements of the competition, namely, accuracy and speed.  The test-taking strategies taught in this class will help students not only in the competitions but also in the future for taking other tests inside and outside of school (such as the SAT and ACT).

    Prerequisites: Students have completed AGS I or Algebra I. For great achievements in the competitions, students find that AoPS Algebra class helps a lot along with this competition class.

    Note: The class materials used for this class are not repeated in 2 years. So students may join this class multiple times in 2 years to refine their competition skills.

    MathCounts is a national middle school mathematics competition that builds problem-solving skills and fosters achievement through four levels of fun, in-person "bee" style contests. The four levels of MathCounts competitions are School, Regional, State, National, from easy to hard. This class is to prepare competitive students for the state and national level of MathCounts competition.

    The American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) 10 is a 25-question, 75-minute, multiple-choice examination in secondary school mathematics containing problems which can be understood and solved with algebra and geometry concepts. It is held in February for students in grades 10 and below.

    This course uses many previously used AMC/MathCounts questions both for class and homework.  In addition, we use many supplemental questions taken from competition math textbooks that will be used for homework to further reinforce the strategies and concepts taught in class.  By the end of the course, students will be exposed to thousands of AMC/MathCounts test questions.

    The focus of this class is on test-taking strategies and critical thinking skills. Most students have the basic knowledge they need to take the competition, so our philosophy is to help students in the other requirements of the competition, namely, accuracy and speed.

    Prerequisites: Students have completed AGS II or Algebra I and Geometry. For great achievements in the competitions, students find that AoPS Algebra and Geometry class helps to build up the foundation along with this competition class.

    The AMC 10 and AMC 12 are nationwide tests administered by the Mathematical Association of America that qualify you for the American Invitational Mathematics Exam (AIME). Only those with top scores will be invited to take the AIME. The MAA recommends 9th and 10th graders take the AMC 10, and 11th and 12th graders take the AMC 12. You can take the AMC 10 and/or 12 multiple times.

    The AMC 10 and AMC 12 each have 25 questions. You have 75 minutes for the entire exam. Note that you don't need to get all of the questions right to get a qualifying score. You just have to do better than most of the other students taking the exam! Keep that in mind as you come up with a strategy for the test.

    You need to be in the top 5% of scorers on the AMC 12 or the top 2.5% of scorers on the AMC 10 to qualify, so the vast majority of people who take the AMC exams don't qualify. But, if you do qualify, you can take the American Invitation Mathematics Examination, or AIME.

    If you do well on the AIME, you can qualify for the US Mathematical Olympiad. The top scorers from that competition then have the opportunity to train to be on the US team that competes at the International Math Olympiad. (You can find more info on this process over at the Mathematical Association of American website .)

    It's a long process to get to the IMO, and very few students make it that far. But even just taking the AIME can set you apart in the college admissions process, especially if you are interested in engineering programs. Along with a high GPA and strong SAT/ACT scores, taking the AIME is a way to signal to colleges you have superior math and problem-solving skills.

    This course will help students to be more ready for do well on AMC 10/12 tests. We will use customized materials for different topics in the competition and also use many previously AMC 10/12 questions both in class and for homework.

    The AIME competition is scheduled in February, 2023 for the school year of 2022-2023. This class will continue to help students to prepare for the test in the Fall, after the AMC 10/12 tests in November.

    American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME) is a multiple choice exam. The questions in AIME are roughly in order of increasing difficulty. The early questions are much easier than olympiad questions.

    Any student who scores in the top 2.5% on the AMC 10, or in the top 5% on the AMC 12 is invited to take the AIME

    If you do well on the AIME, you can qualify for the US Mathematical Olympiad. The top scorers from that competition then have the opportunity to train to be on the US team that competes at the International Math Olympiad. (You can find more info on this process over at the Mathematical Association of American website .)

    If you took the AMC 10, you'll compete in the USA Junior Mathematical Olympiad (USAJMO). Students who took the AMC 12 will compete in the USA Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO). The top roughly 200 participants from AMC 12 and AIME qualify for the USA Mathematics Olympiad (USAMO), while the top roughly 200 participants from the AMC 10 and AIME qualify for the USA Junior Mathematics Olympiad (USAJMO).

    It's a long process to get to the IMO, and very few students make it that far. But even just taking the AIME can set you apart in the college admissions process, especially if you are interested in engineering programs.

    The materials cover core fundamentals and then present these fundamentals at a deeper and more challenging level than a typical elementary-school math curriculum. The problem sets are explicitly designed to help students develop the mental grit to handle AMC and Math Olympiad problems and later tackle the kind of non-trivial open questions that real mathematicians work on.

    This Math Competition class for grades 4-6 will focus on learning and practicing problem-solving skills with the materials from all the following 3 contests. Students enrolled in this class will be invited to the online adaptive learning system for the Math League contest.

    Math Olympiad stimulates enthusiasm and a love for mathematics. It teaches strategies for problem-solving and developing mathematical flexibility in solving problems. 

    Math League expands on basic math concepts taught in schools by using more challenging questions and word problems, requiring students to use critical thinking to complete each question accurately and in a timely manner.  All questions must be finished in the allotted time, and due to this constraint, the course focuses on practical strategies to quickly and accurately answer these types of questions.

    Math Kangaroo is a great way to introduce elementary school students to the world of competitive math. It is an interactive, prize-based competition consisting of puzzles and logic-type problems. Math Kangaroo is open to students in grades 1 - 12; the competition offers 24 problems to be solved within 75 minutes for grades 1-5 and 30 questions for students in grades 5 and up.

    MathCounts is a national middle school mathematics competition that builds problem-solving skills and fosters achievement through four levels of fun, in-person "bee" style contests. It provides engaging math programs to middle school students to build confidence and improve attitudes towards math and problem-solving. This class mainly works on the school and regional level of MathCounts problems.

    The American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) 8 is a 25-question, 40-minute, multiple-choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem-solving skills. The contest is held in November every year and for students in grades 8 and below.

    This class is designed to learn the common problem-solving strategies for both competitions and also working on the previous years of competition for practice.  By the end of the class, students will have been exposed to hundreds of MathCounts/AMC 8 test questions to help them to succeed.

    The focus of this class is on test-taking strategies and critical thinking skills. Most students have the basic knowledge they need to take the competition, so our philosophy is to help students in the other requirements of the competition, namely, accuracy and speed.  The test-taking strategies taught in this class will help students not only in the competitions but also in the future for taking other tests inside and outside of school (such as the SAT and ACT).

    Prerequisites: Students have completed AGS I or Algebra I. For great achievements in the competitions, students find that AoPS Algebra class helps a lot along with this competition class.

    Note: The class materials used for this class are not repeated in 2 years. So students may join this class multiple times in 2 years to refine their competition skills.

    MathCounts is a national middle school mathematics competition that builds problem-solving skills and fosters achievement through four levels of fun, in-person "bee" style contests. The four levels of MathCounts competitions are School, Regional, State, National, from easy to hard. This class is to prepare competitive students for the state and national level of MathCounts competition.

    The American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) 10 is a 25-question, 75-minute, multiple-choice examination in secondary school mathematics containing problems which can be understood and solved with algebra and geometry concepts. It is held in February for students in grades 10 and below.

    This course uses many previously used AMC/MathCounts questions both for class and homework.  In addition, we use many supplemental questions taken from competition math textbooks that will be used for homework to further reinforce the strategies and concepts taught in class.  By the end of the course, students will be exposed to thousands of AMC/MathCounts test questions.

    The focus of this class is on test-taking strategies and critical thinking skills. Most students have the basic knowledge they need to take the competition, so our philosophy is to help students in the other requirements of the competition, namely, accuracy and speed.

    The AMC 10 and AMC 12 are nationwide tests administered by the Mathematical Association of America that qualify you for the American Invitational Mathematics Exam (AIME). Only those with top scores will be invited to take the AIME. The MAA recommends 9th and 10th graders take the AMC 10, and 11th and 12th graders take the AMC 12. You can take the AMC 10 and/or 12 multiple times.

    The AMC 10 and AMC 12 each have 25 questions. You have 75 minutes for the entire exam. Note that you don't need to get all of the questions right to get a qualifying score. You just have to do better than most of the other students taking the exam! Keep that in mind as you come up with a strategy for the test.

    You need to be in the top 5% of scorers on the AMC 12 or the top 2.5% of scorers on the AMC 10 to qualify, so the vast majority of people who take the AMC exams don't qualify. But, if you do qualify, you can take the American Invitation Mathematics Examination, or AIME.

    If you do well on the AIME, you can qualify for the US Mathematical Olympiad. The top scorers from that competition then have the opportunity to train to be on the US team that competes at the International Math Olympiad. (You can find more info on this process over at the Mathematical Association of American website .)

    It's a long process to get to the IMO, and very few students make it that far. But even just taking the AIME can set you apart in the college admissions process, especially if you are interested in engineering programs. Along with a high GPA and strong SAT/ACT scores, taking the AIME is a way to signal to colleges you have superior math and problem-solving skills.

    This course will help students to be more ready for do well on AMC 10/12 tests. We will use customized materials for different topics in the competition and also use many previously AMC 10/12 questions both in class and for homework.
