Math Topics

We teach a broad range of students, from 2nd through 12th grade.

The math concepts they learn will help them in their regular classroom math environment and beyond. We even offer classes that adults can participate in! Here's a quick look at our general course offerings:

  • 2nd-3rd Grade: Foundational Math. In this class, we teach our precocious kids math concepts well beyond common core standards and help set a foundation for MOEMS.
  • 4th-5th Grade: Division E Contest Math. Specifically for Elementary school students. Kids participate in Math Olympiad competitions. Honors classes for advanced students.
  • 6th-8th Grade: Division M Contest Math. Specifically for Middle school students. Kids participate in more advanced Math Olympiad competitions. Accelerated classes for advanced students.
  • 6th-8th Grade: Math Explorations. A deep dive into very advanced math concepts and competitions beyond MOEMS.
  • Grade 8-12: Advanced Topics in Math. Exceptionally challenging math course geared towards prepping students for AMC10, AMC12, and AIME competitions. This class will challenge advanced adult students as well.

How Divisions Work...

Division M: Middle School, or grades 6-8. Math Olympiads contests are by grade. Students in grades 4-5 almost always take Division E. Students in grades 7-8 must take Division M. Students in 6th grade usually take M; in rare cases, we will allow a 6th grader to take division E.

Honors/Accelerated sections are by instructor approval only. Students earn admittance to an Honors section in one of two ways:

  • Performance in the previous year’s contests (90th percentile or higher), or...
  • Qualification from the diagnostic exam which all students take during the first week of class.

Content in the E Honors and M Accelerated sections is the same as in regular sections; additional lessons are provided when there is extra class time. The main difference lies in the speed of teaching.

What about 2nd and 3rd grade math?


By popular demand, Dynamic Teaching will be offering a Math Olympiads class geared towards 2nd and 3rd graders for the first time! The class will be different in two ways:

1) Duration. This class is for 50 minutes instead of the typical 75 minutes. This will allow the younger students to concentrate even after a full day of regular school.

2) Expectations. Because students haven’t mastered writing yet, we will not expect them to show all their work (as we do for all students in grades 4 and up). We will, however, still explain problems step by step.

Keep in mind that the kids in this class will be tackling concepts normally geared towards 4th and 5th graders. They will also take the official MOEMS contests for the sake of experience, but the real purpose of the class is to broaden their math knowledge well ahead of the typical school curriculum.
