Introduction

This is an experimental class limited to 6 students per class. It follows the same curriculum as M203 but offers a higher degree of customization to tailor to the mathematical development of each student. While supervised by Dr. Li, the class will be taught by a trained Ardent Instructor with new learning tools. Students will do part of their work on an iPad inside and outside of the classroom. Therefore, owning an iPad is a requirement for this class. Designed for students in a third gate GATE program or equivalent, this course adds depth to the selected Common Core State Standards of Grades 3-4 with a focus on word problems, mathematical thinking, and problem solving. Students will practice these skills weekly and have the opportunity to participate in 4-5 different math competitions.
