AMC 10 Contest Preparation Class

         The American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) consist of a series of increasingly difficult tests — the AMC 8, the AMC 10/12, the AIME, and the USA(J)MO — for students from middle school and high school designed to challenge bright students beyond their normal mathematical curriculum and build critical thinking and problem solving skills that will help them throughout their academic career and their lives. The AMC 10 — a 25-question multiple choice contest — serves as most students’ first exposure to high school-level math contests.

      Good AMC scores will also enhance admission opportunities for students to elite colleges.

Time: 1:30 to 3:30pm, Saturday, 9/3 to 12/10 (No class on 11/26.)

AMC 8 training class will start soon. 初中数学竞赛训练班

The AMC 8 contest is for students in the sixth through eighth grade, although accelerated fourth and fifth graders can also take part.

AMC 8 is 25 questions in length, and is multiple-choice with no penalty for guessing. The contest takes 40 minutes. A student’s score is the number of problems correctly solved.

Why participate in AMC-8 (quoted from AMC-8 website)

A special purpose of the AMC 8 is to demonstrate the broad range of topics available for the junior high school mathematics curriculum.

Additional purposes of the AMC 8 are to promote excitement, enthusiasm and positive attitudes towards mathematics and to stimulate interest in continuing the study of mathematics beyond the minimum required for high school graduation. Developmentally, junior high school students are at a point where attitudes toward school and learning, and perceptions of themselves as learners of mathematics are solidified. It is important that they be provided opportunities that foster the development of positive attitudes towards mathematics and positive perceptions of themselves as learners of mathematics. The AMC 8 provides one such opportunity.

Test date: 11/17/2016

Our address is 1340 S De Anza Blvd. Suite 204, San Jose, CA 95129
AP Biology class

Meeting every weekend throughout the fall semester, this class will cover the entire AP Biology course as laid out by the College Board.
(The class is appropriate for students who are currently taking AP Biology or who are self-studying for the exam.)
Students will gain a complete, in-depth understanding of all required AP Biology concepts, as well as plenty of practice and feedback.
All past students have scored well on their exams, even 9th graders and self-studiers.

USABO class
This class is for highly motivated USABO competition students (including the USABO students who started over the summer).
As recommended by the USABO organization, we will be covering every single chapter in the Campbellbiology book (the official book of the competition).  This means students may need to read and review up to 5 chapters a week.
(SpringLight will also offer an in-depth “taking all the exams from previous years” class in Jan-Feb, 2017.)
Our previous students have been extremely successful:
*all our students scored above 20 on the regional (the cutoff for nationals was 23.88)
*50% of our students made it to semifinals
*2 of our students have made it to finals (top 20 in the US)


NEW HOT TOPIC! Add NACLO on your application! Take our class to prepare for next year’s contest!

Computational Linguistics plays a more and more important role in modern technology. It also weighs more in college admission no matter if you want to study computer science or linguistics.

The North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad (NACLO) is a contest in which high-school students solve linguistic puzzles. By solving these puzzles, students learn about the diversity and consistency of language, while exercising logic skills. No prior knowledge of linguistics or second languages is necessary: even the hardest problems require only your logical ability, patient work, and willingness to think outside the box.

The number of students who participate in NACLO every year from the U.S. and Canada is less than 2000, which leaves a strong chance for students to enter the semi-final round.

NACLO is as important as USAMO, USACO, USABO, USAPhO and USNCO, although it is still not widely known by the students and parents.

國際語言學奧林匹克競賽(IOL)是面向全球高中生的十二項科學類奧林匹克競賽之一,北美計算語言學奧賽(NACLO)由美國和加拿大的高中生參加,是出征IOL的選拔賽。此項奧賽與數學,計算機和物理等其他奧賽具有同等的含金量,卻尚不廣為人知,因此相對於其他奧賽,獲得大獎的比例更高,機會更大。參加語言學奧林匹克競賽的學生并不需要預先掌握深奧的語言學知識,而是需要運用洞察力,想象力和邏輯推理能力來解決語言學謎題,機具趣味性。

教授這門課的Nelson Niu 進入過NACLO的全美國前四名,并代表美國隊红队參加IOL國際比賽,獲得個人銀獎,團體金獎。他還獲得過多項數學競賽大獎,並有豐富的教學經驗。
