Problem Solving Lab

The one class every student should take!

Math Team

Math Plus Academy Problem Solving Lab participants compete in mathematical competitions year-round. The labs meet weekly to practice for these competitions. Competitions include Math Olympiads, Math League, and Online Math League. (Tuition includes all registration fees).

Each week, students dive into mathematical challenges designed to test their perseverance, develop their critical thinking, and help them see the beauty of mathematics. They’ll work individually and in small groups to try and solve these problems. Our experienced teacher will act as a guide and coach. In addition, students receive weekly homework assignment designed to prepare them for competition.

As students tackle non-routine math problems, they’ll learn how and when to implement important problems solving strategies like working backwards, drawing diagrams, and making tables to search for patterns to name a few.
