The 4th grade arithmetic program will be studied in depth and at a rigorous level. The topics of fractions, long division, and multiplication, and in the winter semester, decimals, will be covered. Factorization, primes, divisibility, and counting principles will be prominent in the program. Geometry, including area, perimeter, and volume of cubes, will be covered, with complex problems on each. The course will have a heavy emphasis on challenging problem solving, with Olympiad preparation done throughout, with topics in logic, sets, number theory, probability, and combinatorics. The program is for those who wish to study mathematics at a deep level, with age-appropriate problems, and a test is required for entrance into this class.
I have taught Mathematics at SchoolPlus for 17 years, to students of all ages and levels from the earliest years of grade school, through advanced classes like AP Calculus. During this time, I have also been teaching in the Rutgers University Mathematics Department.
