Here is a presentation video for the class:
https://www.sunshineeliteeducation.com/videos/presentations/StrengthFocusedWriting122020.mp4Writing Level 3 focuses on writing three related paragraphs on one topic.
We will be building writing skills and grammar systematically for students in grades 3 and 4. Most of the skills are drawn from the higher level of the grade spread, therefore this class is most appropriate for advanced grade 3 students and onlevel grade 4 students. Each of our levels has two years worth of skill content. A student can take this level for two years without repeating content! When your student is ready to develop multiple organizational structures, they will move on to Level 4.
Our "skillbased" program helps children focus on specific writing skills in each class, so students gain mastery skill by skill. They become confident, competent writers. Each term we practice many genres of writing. Each genre builds different skills such as building attention to word choice with poetry and attention to descriptive details with science writing.
Meanwhile "guided" writing is highly supported, and enables students to produce complete writing that is wellstructured.
For example, in Level 3, instead of asking a child to write about themselves, a guided writing assignment could provide the following prompts: 1. What is something you like to do? Explain what you like about it or how you do it. 2. What are some important things to know about you? [Choose at least 3 details, such as name, age, family members, school, favorite things] 3. What experiences in your past have been important to you? 4. Complete the sentence: I am the kind of person who _______. 5. What does it feel like to be you? 6. Now write your paragraphs in a good order.
A child who follows these prompts learns to include explanations, make generalizations, and order paragraphs thoughtfully. They learn specific ending strategies, such as closing with feelings.
We will use the https://stonesoup.com/ website for inspiration, submit writing for publication, and if all goes as planned, we will do some publishing of our own.
We will begin each class by building grammar with the Grammar Workshop from Sadlier throughout the year.

Write two synonyms for each adjective, then circle the best descriptive word. 2. Give evidence (reasons or examples) to support each of the adjectives you chose. 3. What past experiences have contributed to making you who you are? 4. Complete the sentence: I am the kind of person who _______. 5. What does it feel like to be you?
A student who follows these prompts learns to use a thesaurus, provide support for general statements, describe cause and effect relationships, and make classifications and generalizations.

This class is a refined skillbased guided writing level 6/7 class that is taught in a different way: StrengthFocused By Jennifer Rose.
Level 6/7 prepares students for middle school success. The small class size makes it possible to focus on students' particular needs, including essay writing and writing under testing conditions. Students learn skills such as topic testing, effective searches, and source evaluation.
Most of the skills are drawn from the higher level of the grade spread, therefore this class is most appropriate for advanced grade6 students and onlevel grade 7 students. Each of our levels has two years worth of skill content. A student can take this level for two years without repeating content!
Our "skillbased" program helps children focus on specific writing skills in each class, so students gain mastery skill by skill. They become confident, competent writers. Each term we practice many genres of writing. Each genre builds different skills such as building attention to word choice with poetry and attention to descriptive details with science writing.

AGS 3B is the second course of AGS 3, which is usually scheduled in the Winter/Spring term. Students who successfully finish this Algebra 2 /AGS 3 course are ready to take the F5: PreCalculus or ready to prepare for the SAT math test.
AGS 3 is the full school year curriculum. This is the supportive/enhanced AGS 3 class taught in a different way. We are teaching AGS 3 at sunshine using the Holt California Algebra 2 curriculum to build up the fundamental concepts and skills in the sequence that AGS 3 requires, with much more indepth understanding. We also use the AGS 3 curriculum to ensure the class is aligning with the topics in AGS 3.
Who will benefit from this class?
 Students who are taking AGS 3 at school but need more support to learn AGS 3 systematically with clear instruction and more indepth understanding.
 Students who want to learn ahead of what they are learning at school to prepare for the skiplevel math placement test for the next school year.

This Math Competition class for grades 46 will focus on learning and practicing problemsolving 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 problemsolving 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, prizebased competition consisting of puzzles and logictype problems. Math Kangaroo is open to students in grades 1  12; the competition offers 24 problems to be solved within 75 minutes for grades 15 and 30 questions for students in grades 5 and up.

MathCounts is a national middle school mathematics competition that builds problemsolving skills and fosters achievement through four levels of fun, inperson "bee" style contests. It provides engaging math programs to middle school students to build confidence and improve attitudes towards math and problemsolving. This class mainly works on the school and regional level of MathCounts problems.
The American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) 8 is a 25question, 40minute, multiplechoice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problemsolving 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 problemsolving 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 testtaking 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 testtaking 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.

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 problemsolving 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.

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).

Algorithms are the soul of computing. Algorithmic thinking, unlike the very young electronic machinery it brings alive, is rooted in ancient mathematics. It can be roughly described as creating "recipes" (well defined sequences of computational steps) for getting "things" (computational problems specifying an inputoutput relation) "successfully" (correctly) "done" (in finite steps and time).
Algorithm design and analysis provide the theoretical backbone of computer science and are a must in the daily work of the successful programmer. The goal of this course is to provide a solid background in the design and analysis of the major classes of algorithms.
In this course, students will develop ability to articulate processes for solving problems and to implement those processes efficiently within their programming. Students will learn to design algorithms for searching, sorting, and optimization and apply them to answer practical questions.The expected outcome of this class:
Instructor: Jeffrey Chan
Students will be more confident to solve a lot of USACO Bronze level problems, and be able to solve some problems which are equivalent to the silver level from USACO,

AP Computer Science A
Advanced Placement Computer Science A is an AP Computer Science course and examination offered by the College Board to high school students as an opportunity to earn college credit for a collegelevel computer science course. AP Computer Science A is meant to be the equivalent of a firstsemester course in computer science. The AP exam currently tests students on their knowledge of Java. Java Programming Language is one of the most popular programming languages particularly for client–server web applications. Java is highlevel, classbased, objectoriented programming language that is designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It is a generalpurpose programming language intended to let programmers write once, run anywhere, meaning that compiled Java code can run on all platforms that support Java without the need for recompilation. Java applications are typically
compiled to bytecode that can run on any Java virtual machine regardless of the underlying computer architecture.AP Computer Science A  Part 1: Fundamental of Java

Chess is a classic game that develops spatial thinking and strategies and builds focused concentration. Often known as a game for the intellectually gifted, chess is the best sport to exercise the most important organ in our bodies: the brain. It promotes brain growth, raises your IQ, teaches planning and foresight, sparks your creativity, increases problemsolving skills, and optimizes memory improvement.
This class will teach more about basic opening strategies and more advanced tactical tricks and patterns.
The Summer session will start fresh, not just continue the 20202021 curriculum. We test the current skills for all students, integrate new students, and work on strategies and tactics for two main phases of the game. First we will all learn and practice a typical chess opening. Second, we will focus on the key endgame patterns. This rewards pattern training and visualization skills.For the online classes, students will need to use a chess.com account in order to play chess during the class. Younger students can use ChessKid or other portals otherwise, but please have a regular chess.com account just for class. The instructor can observe all games at once. Another benefit from playing these games online is that the instructor can also comment on each student's games at some point during the course, and send those personal suggestions for improvement to the class.
