Algebra Applications: All About Exponents
Algebra Applications is series of classes that drills down and explores key concepts in algebra to ensure a thorough understanding of challenging topics. The class will explore real-life uses and applications for complex algebraic functions. A deeper comprehension of these topics is critical to success in advanced algebra, geometry, calculus, AP mathematics, and college entrance exams. The Applications series will cover: Linear Equations (Quarter 1), Absolute Value Functions (Quarter 2), Quadratic Functions (Quarter 3), and All About Exponents (Quarter 4). This quarter will examine apply the properties of exponents to evaluate and simplify expressions involving powers. Students will also learn how to use exponents and scientific notation to model real-world occurrences. This is a 7-week class that will not meet on May 14.

Each week students will tackle math puzzles, challenges, and learn new "tricks" and techniques to solving a variety of math questions, all while learning about the masterminds behind founding principles of modern mathematics. Each week students will overview the life and times of a great mathematician and then explore key concepts, principles, and formulas introduced by the featured master. Students' problem solving skills will be honed as they examine the historical, cultural, and personal context for discoveries in mathematics. Students will learn "when" and "why" these real people made contributions to modern math and "what" lead them to their discoveries. The class will work sample problems and use experiments and manipulatives to demonstrate the formulas, theories, short-cuts, or alternate approaches suggested by famous mathematicians. Students will be exposed to a wide variety of math terms and concepts. Mathematicians explored in Quarter 4 include: Heron, Babbage, Kovalevsky, Ramanujan, and Galois. This class is not a repeat of Math Masterminds classes from 1st, 2nd, or 3rd quarter and may be taken without prerequisites. This is a 7-week class that will not meet on May 14.

Cracking Codes: Cryptology for Kids
Students will learn the language of spies and secret agents in this children's cryptology class. Cryptology is the science of secret writing which uses math and reasoning such as number patterns, sequences, and symbols to create and decode mystery alphabets. Each week students will learn one or more ciphers and will practice using them to write coded messages to each other and to decode class examples. Code systems used in Quarter 4 the matrix ciphers and substitution ciphers. This class is not a repeat of cryptology classes from 1st, 2nd, or 3rd and may be taken without prerequisites. This is a 7-week class that will not meet on May 14.
