Math is the core of STEM education because Math is the foundation of all modern science and technology. Whether it is cutting-edge technology such as artificial intelligence and block chain, or it is "classic" fields such as medicine or political science, skill is always a basic requirement or merit. Does your child's public school put enough emphasis and set high standard on math? Is math fun for your child to study? Will your child achieve SAT math score asked by the university she/he dreams to enter? If you are not sure about or not satisfied with the answer to these questions, you should explore the Math Competition classes offered at Huaxia. Here are some of the things your child can learn from this class:
Shine like a star and travel around like an athlete! Huaxia Math Competition student Mike Weng was awarded First Place in 2019 Houston Mathleague Competition and 5th Place in 2019 Texas State Mathleague Competition. He is now invited to attend national level math competitions around the country.
Solid problem-solving skills - Math competitions require not only knowledge and concepts, but also efficient problem-solving skills. Both efficiency and skills come from rigorous training and persistent practice of solving math problems at higher difficulty level. There is a great variety of problems in math competition. Some problems are straight-forward while others are tricky or require combining different math methods. Some problems can be solved in a systematic way while other problems ask for creative thinking. The "learn by problem solving" method is vastly adopted in China and can be complementary to math education in the US.
Fun factor - If the only math a student has been exposed to is through textbooks taught in school, then she/he has missed many different flavors that math has to offer. Math can be played, explored and enjoyed just like any other extracurricular activities. Many math problems in this class will take the form of puzzles or riddles. Card games will be played to teach students from arithmetic operations to probability. Fun and joy are some of the most important factors in our course design.
Competitiveness - Solid math education prepares a student to triumph in a world that becomes increasingly more dynamic and competitive. Not only the class will reinforce and expand math knowledge learned in school, the systematic and creative problem-solving skills sharpened in this class will be precious to a student's ability to deal with her/his future career, whether it is scientific research, technological applications or a Whole New World yet to be discovered.
