The series follows a syllabus of concepts, vocabulary, and problem solving strategies appropriate for students who are in grade 2 or are in first grade but are advanced in math. The pre-requisite knowledge for this series consists of: addition and subtraction of multi-digit numbers as well as simple multiplications (such as “twice”, “half”, etc.)

The recommended study sequence is: Observation and Logic, Arithmetic, Counting, and Operations.

All four workbooks are also published as a combo edition which is kept in sync with the individual books. Some parents prefer the individual workbooks because young students like to “finish” the task. Some parents prefer the combo because it is not easy to lose it among other study materials.

The series is projected to present a variety of assignments, in test or in math club format. These assignments may be used as homework or as assessments. We recommend using one assessment each month while studying the syllabus-based practice books.

The “6 Practice Tests in Math Kangaroo Style for Students in Grades 1 and 2” provides additional solving material. We recommend using one assessment each month while studying the syllabus-based practice books.

Coming soon… the “Weekly Math Club Materials for Students in Grades 1 and 2” offers a weekly set of activities targeted to form good work habits for problem solving: number sense, drawing skills, and the mixed review of problem strategies.

The series follows a syllabus of concepts, vocabulary, and problem solving strategies appropriate for students who are in grade 4 or are in third grade but are advanced in math. The pre-requisite knowledge for this series consists of: place value, addition and subtraction of multi-digit numbers, multiplication, and long division.

The recommended study sequence is: Arithmetic, Combinatorics, Word Problems, and Operations.

This guide for parents who want to manage their students’ extracurricular math education provides answers to many of the questions that parents ask in the field.

Mrs. Borac provides additional help to parents several times per year by means of a webinar. Parents who have attended the seminar have found the discussion useful and inspiring.

In addition, the articles on our website provide even more detail about the landscape of competitive mathematics in the United States.
