MAK offers a very vigorous and interactive math program. Students are challenged with critical thinking, story problems and real-life applications.
Our program uses the McDougal Littel series of middle school and high school courses. The 6th and 7th grade courses cover the five major strands of mathematics; Numerical and Proportional Reasoning, Algebraic Reasoning, Geometry and Measurement, Statistics, Data Analysis and Probability, and Problem Solving and Reasoning. Beginning in the 8th grade, students may take Pre-Algebra or can test into an advanced track of high school Algebra followed by Geometry in the 9th grade.
The 7th and 8th grade students will be competing in AMC, an American Math Competition in November, 2010. In the spring, they will then compete in the Gauss Contest, while the 9th grade students compete in the Pascal Contest, which are Canadian Mathematics Competitions.
