Summer Terms - More Information and to Register: www.ecae.net

Math I -
On Saturdays during the summer, the two half-terms (the three-week July module or the three-week August module) of the 11:00am section will be the "year 1" (Math I) sections, covering basic principles of statistics during the July half-term and basic combinatorics (counting) and probability in the August half-term. Students may take either the July half-term, the August half-term, or both whether they are new to the ECAE course (as some students will be) or alumni of the school-year ECAE course (as some students will be). Problems for the Math I summer course come not just from the assigned textbook but also from other sources around the world, especially for the fourth week of the four week July half-term. The summer courses at either level (Math I or Math II) are good introductions for first-time students to the school-year ECAE courses. All ECAE mathematics courses especially emphasize building a foundation for numeracy in adult life, proficiency in secondary school mathematics, and success in university mathematics courses. Problem sources are not limited to the course textbook but include problems from many other sources, including problems originally written in Russia, China, or India.

Math II -
On Saturdays during the two summer half-terms (the three-week July half-term or the three-week August half-term), the 9:00am section will be the "year 2" (Math II) section, covering general problem-solving techniques such as finding patterns in problem situations, listing information as a problem-solving technique, diagramming to focus on essential details of a problem, and working backwards to generate possible solutions. Problems for the Math II summer course come not just from the assigned textbook but also from other sources around the world, especially for the fourth week of the four-week July half-term. Except for the supplementary material in the fourth week of the July half term, the year 2 half-terms for Math II in summer 2016 cover the same topics. The summer courses at either level (Math I or Math II) are good introductions for first-time students to the school-year ECAE courses. All ECAE mathematics courses especially emphasize building a foundation for numeracy in adult life, proficiency in secondary school mathematics, and success in university mathematics courses.

Winter 2016 course registration is now open.
The Edina Center for Academic Excellence focuses on offering courses that are not available in schools.
Classes are taught by instructors who focus on the learning needs of gifted learners who are looking for more challenge than school-year courses provide.
Click here to register online: www.ecae.net

Dates: 10 Saturdays - 9 January thru 12 March


Physics Teams I & II: 7:30-9:00pm; (September – April, includes F=ma and Physics Olympiad) Students may still join!

* In addition to the West Metro Physics Team, we also offer two physics contests which any student may register for if they are unable to take it at their school. We order a set number of test packets, registration priority is given to WMPT members (exam fee is included with membership):
1) The F=ma Contest: Multiple-choice only, focusing on mechanics; problems can be solved without the use of calculus. Exam time: 75 minutes (allow 90 minutes total to administer the exam). Given January 22; there is a $15 fee to students not a member of WMPT.
2) Physics Bowl Contest: is a 40-question, 45-minute timed, multiple-choice test given April 15. There is a $15 fee to students not a member of WMPT.

Summer Math Class Registration! Math I Grades: 3, 4, 5. Location: South View Middle School, Edina #135. Instructor: Karl Bunday, 2007 Edyth May Sliffe award recipient for middle school mathematics teaching. Dates: 16 August, 23 August, 30 August 2014 (August module, three weeks) Fee: $65 Summer II (August) Bright, mathematically precocious younger students now have an opportunity to investigate problem solving and topics beyond the school curriculum. A student who has picked up basic methods of calculation quickly and exhibits a good grounding in beginning prealgebra concepts will find this course a natural extension of personal talents and interests. Focus will be on approaches to problem solving, understanding mathematical algorithms, through preparation for algebra, and deep topics of interest to young learners. The summer program focuses especially on topics almost never covered in K-12 school math courses. The course will include both returning and new students. A bonus of the class is friendships with eager math-learners from six different counties. Registration: http://ecae.net/register/
