Do-Re-Mi School of Music & the Arts
113 South Livingston Avenue
Learning Through Play Programs for 4.5-7 year old
The goal of these programs is to spark a child's interest in math, to develop his or her logical thinking. Should we try to develop child's interest to math so early? To see examples of outstanding results of children's early introduction to math and science, please click here.
We introduce elements of probability theory and statistics. Given the children's age, we don't write formulas and we don ns except for simple counting of objects. Basic math concepts are introduced through hands-on experience (e.g. children learn what Number Line is by marking numbers on a string.) In addition, every lesson includes logic puzzles/questions.
This program prepares for Kangaroo Math levels 1-2 and builds the fundamentals for any type of olympiad.
Comprehensive Math Enrichment Program for grades 2 through 8.
Our Math Enrichment Program for school ages has been developed in classical traditions of systematic education and is based on the best principles of advanced math schools in Russia and USA. It has been adapted to the USA educational environment.
Children work differently, but from our experience majority of the kids will spend for homework:
Grade K-1: one hour a week
Grade 3 and up: 1-1.5 hours a week.
Olympiad Math for Elementary and Middle Schools
If student expresses interest in math, masters the school math with ease and is showing certain aptitude, we suggest Olympiad Math. This program does not review what children learn at schools, but is focusing on challenging problems and concepts that often are not addressed by school programs. The Do-Re-Mi School Math team is qualified as an institutional team for MOEMS competitions, 5 monthly contests starting in November. Each child is also eligible for participation in Kangaroo Math Contest, International contest taking place in March. We use materials offered by various Olympiads from previous years, American and European.
In the MOEMS 2013-2014 we prepared a team of four 6th-graders. Two of them made top 2%, and the other two made the top 10%.
Please notice, the schedule is tentative and may be adjusted according to demand.
For enrollment, Math placement test is required.
