Grades 2 – 3

Basic Skills & Problem Solving I

offering-img01
This program is primarily intended for students entering grades 2 and 3 who want a “refresher” before school starts. It is also ideal for new students who would like to experience the Spirit of Math classroom, or establish some skills before starting the school-year evening classes. Content includes addition and multiplication drills, number theory topics such as regrouping and mental math, and problem solving topics such as consecutive number problems, counting shapes, date problems, cuts and pieces, and integers.

Grades 2 – 3

Graphing & Discovering Patterns

offering-img02

How can you explain an exact location in space? Students will learn how the Cartesian axes are used to describe a location in space, then plot points and make drawings in all four quadrants. This program also introduces students to the Tower of Hanoi, patterns in circle chords, and finally the Fibonacci sequence. Drills and several mPODs® (Math Problem of the Day) will be done each day. This program is for students entering grade 2 or 3 in the coming school year.

 

Grades 4 – 6

Basic Skills & Problem Solving II

offering-img03

This program is primarily intended for students entering grade 4, 5 or 6 who want a “refresher” before school starts. It is also ideal for new students who would like to experience the Spirit of Math classroom, or establish some skills before starting the school-year evening classes. Content includes integer addition and multiplication drills, number theory topics such as relocation, integers, primes, divisibility rules, lowest common multiples, and a large variety of problem solving topics, including Venn diagrams and date problems.

Grades 4 – 6

Golden Ratio & Contest Prep

offering-img04
The Golden Ratio was so pleasing to the eye that at one time in history it even became a “decree absolute” for the rules governing the shape and disposition of drawing and paintings, and architecture. Students taking this program will be “discovering” the golden ratio and looking at its implications in nature. Students will also be preparing for the up-coming Mathematica competitions. Drills and several mPODs® (Math Problem of the Day) will also be completed each day. This program is for students entering grades 4, 5 or 6 in the coming school year.

Grade 5

Refresher Course

offering-img05
The Spirit of Math grade 5 program is a foundational year when students consolidate their numeracy skills and their understanding of numbers, consequently all the Spirit of Math courses link to this year. This 1-week program is a very fast overview of the grade 5 program. It is designed for students who have finished the Spirit of Math grade 5 course (who would like to consolidate their understanding), and new students who are entering grades 6, 7 or 8.

 

Morning topics covered:

Relocation Property; Signed Numbers; Order of Operations; Factors, Multiples and Primes; and Number Sets.
Afternoon topics covered:
Spirit of Math 10-minute drills and problem solving.

Grades 7 – 9

Probability

offering-img06
This program, designed for students entering grades 7, 8 and 9, is for the serious student who wants a greater understanding of probability. This course starts with the basics and quickly progresses to high-level probability concepts, including permutations and combinations. This content is not taught during the regular Spirit of Math school year program due to limited time, but is a core topic that students should know. This course also includes daily multiplication drills and competition problem sets.

Grades 7 – 9

Transformations

offering-img07
A thorough investigation of transformations is covered in this course. Translations, reflections, rotations, and dilations will be explored, as well as the combination of the transformations. The program concludes with a competitive rally for students to enjoy. This course is unique to Spirit of Math, having been developed apart from other textbooks. In the past, this course was taught in the evening classes, but has been taken out of the school year program to allow for the addition of new topics in the senior grades.

Spirit of Math is pleased to work with partners in offering the following amazing summer camp programs in 2016:

Grades 2-9 – Hatch Canada – The Full Hatch Experience (Richmond Hill – full day)

Kids learn to program and make awesome things every day! Hatch uses JavaScript to teach coding while campers learn the fundamentals of computer science: loops, conditionals, arrays and variables. Participants choose their own projects to build every day under the guidance of trained (and very fun) coaches. After experimenting with new code and maker projects in the first three days, campers then get to create a showcase project – a 100% self-directed project that ties together all their new skills! A final industry outing inspires campers about what’s possible in the world of technology.

Grade 2-3 – Logics Academy – Coding & Robotics: Programming Adventures (North Toronto - CNIB)

In this program students will be introduced to Dash and Dot, exciting and energetic robots that can be programmed with Google Blockly. Using this drag-and-drop programming language on tablets, students will learn essential computational thinking and problem solving skills. Employing programming concepts such as sequences, conditional statements and loops, these young coders will develop algorithms to complete stimulating challenges. From choreographing a dance, to saving the day, students will be amazed by Dash and Dot’s actions and feel empowered as they turn their imagination into reality!
