Dates (winter Trimester)
December 1, 8, 15
January 12 and 26
February 2, 9, 16
March 2 and 9
Please be on the look out for emails as some dates may change based on schedule adjustments.
The program will be at NYU's Courant Institute. You can find directions here.
Supplemental Algebra (10 am - 12 PM)
This class will help build a deeper understanding of algebra, and will be an addition to what you're learning at your school. Understanding algebra 1 is important for your later math classes like Calculus. This class will also prepare students for the Algebra 1 Regents in June.
Fast Paced algebra (10 AM - 12 PM)
This class will prepare you for the Regents exam and is made for students whose schools do not currently offer Algebra 1 for 8th grade students. We'll move at a fast pace to ensure you are as best prepared for later math classes in school like Calculus.
Pick one of the following classes:
Learn to program! You will learn to program in Python, and will create a project (for example, a small game or web application).
Learn to build circuits and program the Arduino micro controller. Learn the basics of programming in C.
Math enrichment (TBd)
We will be offering an additional mathematics enrichment course this winter trimester. More updates will soon come.
Mathpath admissions Prep (December only) &
If you are already in MathPath Prep this will continue throughout December. Afterwards the course will switch to another theoretical math topic.
