Problem of the Week 2 - Click here. Have fun!

O-OPS! There was a mistake in the last week problem for 7th year. The right wording is: 

  A child has a box with a kilogram of assorted candies. Each minute he takes a candy from the box and eats it right away, without looking. In order to eat at least 4 candies of the same kind, he needs to eat at least 55 candies. How many different kinds of candies are there in the box? And will he suffer a stomach ache after that?
Thanks to Ms. Inna who noticed a mistake :-)

Learning Through Play 

Programs for 3-7 year old

The goal of these programs is to sparkle 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.




The program for 6-7 year olds

We introduce elements of probability theory and statistics. Given the children's age, we don't write formulas and we don't perform calculations 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.
