Grades: 9 and below
Homework: 2-5+ hours per week
Placement Guidelines: We strongly recommend that students in grades 8-9 who are new to Math-M-Addicts start in Group S. Students may join Group S for a total of two years.
Course Description: Group S revisits topics from Group Y such as combinatorics, number theory, and proofs at greater depth and difficulty. Group S also covers new topics such as mathematical induction, geometry, basic inequalities, and invariants. A fraction of the class is dedicated to games, contests, and working in teams.
Prerequisites: Algebra is used extensively; familiarity with algebra is of great help.
