 Classes for early development through university prep courses + tutoring, foreign languages, development of artistic expression provided by talented and cooperative teachers. Classes start on September 29th!

The school offers math classes for students of different math levels. First, the math classes' focus is to help our students with immediate problems, such as homework help and test prep, while filling in any foundational gaps in their mathematical knowledge. The goal is to enhance their performance in the crucial exams they'll be taking that can have a great effect on their future—high school exit exams, college placement exams, and college entrance exams such as the SAT and the ACT. Second, the purpose of the math classes is to enhance the study of mathematics. The goal of math class is to help the student develop a valuable mental ability – a powerful way of thinking. This course emphasizes analytical skills and problem solving techniques.

What is a paradox? It is a valid statement - which means it that it is 'legitimate' in some way, but appears to be wrong or self-contradictory at the same time. For example, try by playing the game of inventing a statement which is of the type such as: "The barber shaves all men in the village who do not shave themselves" and then posing a question - "who shaves the barber?" If you think about it, you will see that: barber is shaving all men in the village who do not shave themselves, then he should not be shaving himself, but if he is not shaving himself, he should be because he shaves all the men in his village who do not shave themselves. Another one: "I am lying" is only true if it is false, and vice versa. JANUARY Chapter 10. Mental Math and Estimation is about thinking flexibly and fluently. Charter 11.
