10/6/2019 | Did you ever want to communicate with your friends in a secret way that only those who knew the secret could understand? A cipher is a tool for writing and reading secret messages. We will study three ciphers this time: the reverse cipher, Polybius cipher, and Casear cipher. You will find a template for making a Caesar cipher disk at the link below. [Show less] |

10/13/2019 | An anagram is a word or phrase formed by rearranging letters of another word or phrase. Most often, all the original letters are used once. For example, the words "silent" and "listen" form an anagram. This time, we will have anagrams for a warm-up and then study two ciphers: pigpen cipher and rail fence cipher. [Show less] |

10/20/2019 | We will finish the study of the rail fence cipher and take a quiz on ciphers. Remember, we do not quiz students, we quiz teachers. If you get a low grade, it means we didn't do a good job. Please study for the quiz - don't let us down! [Show less] |

10/27/2019 | We will take the first look at one of the most important concepts in mathematics, that of a function. [Show less] |

11/3/2019 | Students will learn the y = f(x) notation. [Show less] |

11/10/2019 | We will continue studying functions. [Show less] |

11/17/2019 | We will review functions. Then students will take quiz 2. [Show less] |

12/1/2019 | First, students will learn basic facts about polygons. Then they will proceed to build some solids out of cubes and to draw their 2D projections. [Show less] |

12/8/2019 | In this class, students will draw 2D projections of more complicated solids. [Show less] |

1/12/2020 | Students were asked to study the 8th packet, More Solids, during the Winter break. Since the packet is rather challenging for the age, we will through it class. [Show less] |

1/19/2020 | Students will solve problems from the 2014 Canadian Math Kangaroo test. [Show less] |

1/26/2020 | First, we will go through a few problems from the 9th packet. Then students will take a quiz on polygons and solids. Then we will finish discussing the packet. [Show less] |

2/2/2020 | We will solve logic problems from the Knights and Liars packet. (Oleg Gleizer) [Show less] |

2/9/2020 | Students will learn the notion of a statement, simple and composite, and how the truth function takes value on statements. [Show less] |

2/23/2020 | We will continue studying the Mathematical Logic mini-course. [Show less] |

3/1/2020 | We will fist check some problems from the packet 12 homework. Then we will begin studying logic gates. [Show less] |

3/8/2020 | We will finish studying logic gates and will study double negation. [Show less] |

3/15/2020 | We will prepare for the upcoming Math Kangaroo competition. [Show less] |
