Greetings Students & Parents~
As we look forward to summer and the upcoming school year at MIM! we are happy to be offering all classes in-person. Summer intensives and camps will be in-person at our Math is Magic! school house in Eugene and are listed below. If you have a student preparing for a class not listed, just let me know via text and we will create more learning opportunities as needed. In addition to the camps and intensives, our team will be offering private lessons throughout the summer for students who are ﬁlling gaps, enriching and preparing for next year.
Space is limited and classes will be be filled on ﬁrst-come basis so please register asap. This summer, there is again the awesome and strong possibility of classes being offered on full scholarship for 4j students who have current student id numbers. If you’ve already submitted your id number, no need to
do it again, but please let me know asap if you’re interested in receiving scholarship. To register: Please text me at (541)517-4179. The cost of each camp will be $200 for non-scholarship students. Non-scholarship students, please register by sending a check with students name and camp name on the memo line to Math is Magic! 1325 Jefferson Street, Eugene, OR 97402
A.M.E.(Advanced Math Exploration) Level 1:
July 17,18,19,20 from 9am-12pm
This class will be focused on foundations and higher concepts. We will delve into the deepest oceans of number theory, exploring Real and Imaginary numbers, sequences, identities, probability, functions and life on the coordinate plane. Students should bring a daily snack:)
Target grades: 3-5
Algebra 1 ~ Get Set Go :
July 17,18,19,20 from 1pm-3:30 pm
For students taking Algebra 1 in the Fall or those ready for the math of generalization: We begin with an intensive review of Pre-Algebra concepts, including fractions/decimals/percents, proportions, inequalities, absolute value, integers, and move on to properties of equality, variable substitution, simplifying algebraic expressions, solving equations & graphing linear functions.
SAT INTENSIVE Preparation Course:
Aug 7,8,9,10 from 9:30 am-12:30pm
This class is for students who will take college entrance exams over the next few months. Once again, the SAT will be offered on August 27th and many students are planning to take it during this time so they can entirely focus on achieving their target scores. We will learn speciﬁc strategies, methods and content mastery for both the calculator and non-calculator portions of the exam. Course books provided.
Limited to 15 students.
Quadratics Intensive ~ The Parabolic Experience:
Aug 7,8,9,10 from 1pm-3:30pm
We will fully illuminate this conic section: graphing, solving, simplifying and real-world applications. We’ll prove the quadratic formula, not just memorize it! This is an excellent opportunity for students who have just completed Alg 1 or are heading into Alg 2 or PreCalc and need to solidify this core concept. Quadratics are an extremely important part of every upper math class and most often, the least understood.
Geometry ~ Logic & Proof:
Aug 21,22,23,24 from 9:30-11:30 am
In addition to reviewing core algebra techniques used in geometric applications and assuring we’re all ready for the Algebra quiz given the ﬁrst week of school, we will learn to tackle the formal proof, deﬁnitions, postulates and theorems and adjust our visual space perception to see the beauty of the ﬁrst three dimensions.
Algebra 2 ~ Up to Speed:
Aug 21,22,23,24 from 12-2pm
Second year Algebra is notoriously fast-paced and we will boot up the algebraic method, solidify ﬁrst year concepts, introduce the family of functions and transformations in the plane. Exponents, logarithms, polynomials, radicals, non-linear inequalities, and trigonometry are all part of the curriculum.
Pre-Calculus ~ Functions in all forms
(Math 111/FST) Aug 28,29,30,31 from 9:30 am-11:30 noon
This course will bring together all of the maths studied so far, strengthening the complete algebraic method, non-linear inequalities, sequences & series, advanced system solving as well as review of polynomials, exponents and logarithms, domain, range and graphical transformations.
TI -84 plus CE graphing calculators will be used and it is recommended that students have personal calculators.
Calculus~ Limits, Continuity and the Derivative:
Aug 28,29,30,31 from 12:30-3pm
Introduction to limits, continuity and the deﬁnition of the derivative, basic Rules of Differentiation and AP prep. Ideal for students taking both levels of Calculus next year as well as those preparing for college courses.
