## Ellipsis Math 2

Watch your child develop a love for mathematics while building important critical thinking and problem-solving skills. We balance our curriculum with rigorous practices, strategy development in multi-step problems solving, and early exposure to logic problems.

In both semesters, students will be exposed to multi-step problem solving strategies (draw a diagram, working backward, making an organized list, etc.)

Many problems from various math competitions will be discussed as part of our active learning sessions. Students receive weekly assignments which may take them up to 1 hour per week.
