The Math courses broaden students’ understanding of challenging concepts in a manner that enriches their
investigative and reasoning skills. In this course, the study of numbers and their operations will be explored
through relevant word problems and unique real-world applications.

Target Students

The MathWiz program is designed for students in Grades 1 to 10, ranging in age from 6 to 18. Students will be grouped appropriately based on their academic evaluation and subsequent progress. They will embark on their learning paths and progress at a pace that is comfortable for them.

Student progress is strengthened through

1. homework assignments for every concept covered (3 days per week)

2. monthly quizzes / mini-test (on the last week of the month - results will be released to the parents on the
first class of the month)

3. cumulative final exam (end of the semester)

Curriculum

The Math courses adhere to the Common Core and Singapore Math Curriculums. Students will sharpen their
math skills to have a fundamental understanding of Number Theory and Pre-Algebra concepts. As a result,
they will be well prepared for middle and high school math courses and national standardized tests, including
MCA, MAP, Aspire ACT, and Pre PSAT Examinations.

Course Objectives

The student will master the grade-level math skills and acquire above-grade level skills to advance to the
accelerated math groups and score high on the State and National standardized tests. The curriculum and
detailed course objectives are listed as below.

● Write whole numbers in expanded form, the word name
for a number, and the number for a word name.

● Factor whole numbers into primes and apply the rules
of divisibility.

● Add, subtract, multiply, and divide whole numbers,
including multi-digit numbers when carrying and borrowing may be necessary,
using the properties of numbers.

● Perform several arithmetic operations in the proper
order and evaluate whole-number exponents.

● Round whole numbers and estimate the answer to a
problem involving calculations with whole numbers.

● Solve application problems using the basic math
operations and check answers.

● Add, subtract, multiply, or divide two or three
signed numbers with the same or different signs.

● Calculate with signed numbers using more than one
operation.

● Use fractions to represent data from applied
situations.

● Write a number as a product of prime numbers, reduce
fractions, and determine if two fractions are equivalent.

● Change between a mixed number and an improper
fraction and reduce.

● Multiply and divide mixed numbers and fractions that
are proper or improper.

● Find the least common denominator given two or three
fractions and convert a fraction to an equivalent fraction with a given
denominator.

● Add and subtract mixed numbers and fractions with or
without a common denominator.

● Solve applied problems that involve various types of
fractions.

● Change between fractional and decimal notation.

● Compare decimals, order decimals, and round decimals
to a specified decimal place.

● Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals. Solve
applied problems using operations with decimals.

● Use ratios and rates to compare quantities.

● Write a proportion and solve proportions for the
missing number.

● Solve applied problems using proportions.

● Change a percent, decimal, or fraction to equivalent
forms.

● Translate a percentage problem into a proportion or
an equation and solve.

● Solve applied percentage problems including interest,
commission, percent change, and discounts.

● Identify units of measure in the American system and
solve related problems.

● Use prefixes in the metric system and convert metric
units of length, mass, and volume.

● Solve applied problems involving the metric system of
measure.

● Change numbers between standard notation and
scientific notation.

● Add and subtract numbers in scientific notation.

● Combine like terms containing a variable and apply
the distributive property.

● Solve equations using the addition or multiplication
properties of equality or both.

● Solve equations where the variable is on both sides
of the equal sign and the distributive property must be used.
