This program is for students entering grade 2 or 3 in the coming school year.

 

 

 

 Vancouver  August 21-25 Grades 4-6: Golden Ratio & Contest Preparation - by Spirit of Math Schools Inc.

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 done each day. This program is for students entering grades 4, 5 or 6 in the coming school year.

 

 

 

Vancouver August 21-25 Grades 7-9: Transformations - by Spirit of Math Schools Inc.

A thorough investigation of transformations is covered in this course. Reflections, slides, and rotations will be explored, as well as the combination of the transformations. 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 evening courses due to an introduction of new topics in the senior grades.
