## Ellipsis MATH 3

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.

## topics covered

**Fall Session**

Number sense (up to 10,000), number patterns, mental math calculation, sum and difference, product, quotient and remainder, multiplication patterns, division patterns, problem solving involving all four operations, money, calendar and time, algebraic connections, and data analysis.

In addition, materials from Math Kangaroo, Noetic Contest, and Math Challenge will be presented and discussed in class.

**Spring Session**

Number sense (up to 10,000), mental math calculation, measurement conversions, weight conversions, and capacity conversions. problem solving involving all four operations, fractions (understanding basic concept, equivalent fractions, adding/subtracting fractions), and fraction of a set, telling time and elapsed time, and geometry. Geometry will cover the basic concept of area, perimeter, and volume.

In both session, 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 as a group.
