From the earliest grades, we deliver our Math program by engaging our students and ensuring they understand the core principles of our mathematics lessons. This in-depth understanding is then put into practice with challenging problem solving and cooperative group work.
Happy Math follows unique and hard routines. Students learn to read critically, to think creatively, to work cooperatively and to explore when the answer isn’t immediately obvious. In every grade, our students complete a minimum of 400 competition- level problems over a year, and apply their skills in international and national math contests.
HIGH SCHOOL MATHEMATICS
High school can be an overwhelming time for teenagers. School subjects become more specialized and advanced, and getting good grades becomes even more challenging. High school private or semi-private tutoring can help teens feel less school stress, both in and out of the classroom. Our high school tutoring program offers a personalized and unique approach for all learning levels, from remedial to enrichment. We teach teens how to stay focused on their academic goals, how to keep motivated through tough school subjects, and most importantly, how to achieve their own academic successes.
DIFFERENT CONTEST EXPOSURE
Contest participation is not a requirement for admission, but we strongly encourage you to participate, as it is an asset to university applications. For examples, participation in mathematical contests is recommended, for example, by American "Ivy League" universities. It demonstrates that you have sufficient mathematical background to enter university programs, and would be especially useful in cases where the schoolmay be unfamiliar with an education system and unable to assess an applicant's mathematical background.
The Caribou Mathematics Competition
The Caribou Mathematics Competition is a worldwide online contest held six times a year. Six contests are offered throughout the whole school year. One contest for each of the grade levels 2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8, 9/10 and 11/12 and one each in English, French, Persian and Mandarin.
The Caribou Cup is one of the series of all Caribou Contests in one school year. Students' rankings in the Caribou Cup are determined by their Performance in their best 5 of 6 contests throughout the school year.
Grades offered: Grade 2 to Grade 12
