Math and Science Courses for Older Children
We are happy to offer the following math and science courses in English for older elementary and middle school children:
This course will take the students through the basics of mathematics and pre-algebra topics. It will prepare them for further studying of higher level mathematical subjects such as Algebra, Precalculus, Calculus and Statistics. It will also teach them some important tools that they will use in their daily life. The course includes review of arithmetic skills, operating with whole numbers, fractions and decimals, solving equations and proportions, solving percent and other word problems, operations with polynomials and exponents.
This course is designed to introduce students to basic algebraic concepts. It will serve as a foundation for further studying of higher level of mathematical subjects such as Intermediate Algebra, Precalculus, Calculus and Statistics. Topics studied include linear and quadratic equations, operations with polynomials, products and factoring, radicals and algebraic fractions.
Instructor: Luda Balanovich, MA in Applied Mathematics and BA in Economics, taught and tutored various Math courses at the University of New Hampshire (Manchester, NH), New England College and Hesser College.
