  • 金融数学 (The Mathematics of Money)

    This course provides students with a mathematical grounding in central concepts of business and finance. Students investigate the mathematics of buying and selling, and apply these principles to real-world situations. Students investigate various forms of taxes, considering their impact on personal and governmental budgets. They gain fluency with the concepts of simple and compound interest and learn how these affect the present and future value of loans, mortgages, and interest-bearing accounts. In their examination of these topics, students manipulate and solve algebraic expressions, and also learn to apply a wide range of mathematical concepts.)

  • AP 物理 (AP Physics)

    to be added...

  • SAT数学 (SAT Math)


  • Scratch语言 (Scratch Programming)

    2017秋季主题:Draw Like a Robot. (Spring 2018 will focus on game programming using Scratch).

    时间:4:30pm - 5:30pm

    内容:We'll use the famous visual programming tool Scratch from MIT to learn some real coding techniques like repetitions, conditionals, functions, recursion, and object oriented programming.
    We'll learn Scratch by working on different projects, instead of blocks by blocks. It is more effective and fun.
    The class will also help the kids to build up some mathematical understanding on angles, geometric shapes, coordinates, modular operation, fractals through a very intuitive and interactive way.

    要求: The kid should be able to read and know how to do long divisions. A good solid laptop (iPad doesn't work). No textbook is required.

    The class is for both beginner and intermediate levels. Beginners will be provided with detailed instructions. Intermediate students will be guided and challenged.

    Maximum 15 students.
