Math can sometimes seem easy and boring, but oftentimes, that's just the school curriculum. In YAPA Kids Math, we'll be tackling a unique curriculum and a new type of problem for the more advanced students: AMC 8 competition math problems. These are fun, interesting, and most of all, out-of-the-box questions that will significantly improve the students' logical abilities, applicable to all fields of STEM. Logical reasoning skills, when trained from an early age, can give students an edge in high school and in life for any problem solving. We will start of with the easier questions that anyone in grades 4-7 can solve, and gradually move up to more challenging questions as students become better equipped and skilled at creating solutions. Other than these problems, each class has their own quiz-style curriculum that aims to help students practice their math fundamentals. We aim towards providing weekly practice that can help many improve and polish their math skills.
