The registration period for Gateway Mathematics Summer 2021 will begin in early May.
Please subscribe below to be notified of all upcoming courses and classes from Math Potentials, including the next opportunity to take Gateway Mathematics.
In Gateway Mathematics students will learn how to solve challenging, multi-step problems with understanding and confidence by using a visual method known as the Singapore Math Bar Model. The Bar Model approach is key in developing proportional reasoning which is a gateway to algebraic thinking. Singapore Math is a world-class curriculum which we use in the Alpha and Beta levels of Math Circles.
Gateway Mathematics is an online program taught in a flipped classroom style, where students watch a lesson video first and then come to a live virtual class to practice with problems. Homework is assigned after class in order to reinforce concepts.
Who is Gateway Mathematics for?
This course is designed for students entering Grades 5 - 8 in September who have not attended Math Circles previously. It will also be beneficial to Math Circles students who have just completed Alpha or Beta but joined late in the year or simply feel they could use a review of the Singapore Math Bar Model.
What is the weekly time commitment?
3 to 4 hours per week which includes watching on-demand lesson videos, attending virtual classes, and completing homework.
Classes in this summer program are 1.5 hours long, once a week for six weeks. Classes are conducted virtually through Zoom.
Exploration level is for students entering Grade 5-6 who have never attended Math Circles
Discovery level is for students entering Grade 7-8, or Grade 6 students who have completed Alpha Class
The detailed class schedule will be posted before registration opens in early May 2021.
