数学竞赛 Math Contest training camp starts from next week

Counting and Probability 与Number Theory 是各种数学竞赛的必要知识。而且这些都是学校数学没有包括进来的。在暑期修好这两门课,可以为以后的数学竞赛学习打下良好基础。

教授这两门课的两位优秀年青人Nelson和Kevin 不仅自己都进了美国国家数学奥赛集训队(MOSP,全美50人),和MIT Primes(全美17人),还都有其他国家级的竞赛大奖。他们都富有教学经验。(Kevin在A star 教过暑期班,Nelson在春晖教育有数年的教学经验。)

Counting and Probability

A topic ranging from the number of digits used to number the pages in a 100 page book, to the probability of rolling doubles on two dice. This topic is prevalent in middle and high school competitions, including Mathcounts and AMC, as well as being a part of high school Algebra 2/Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus courses. After taking the class students will have mastered and will be able to solve commonly found problems on these competitions.

Number Theory

A topic rarely covered in high school, from divisibility rules to prime numbers, this topic appears on Mathcounts and AMC problems quite often. Mastering this often helps with understanding more abstract math concepts in high school and college, such as in Calculus and beyond. This also will touch on several proof methods, such as proof by contradiction and induction, which are essential for proof-level mathematics competitions such as BAMO or USA(J)MO.

Biology Honors class (for 6th-9th graders)

Meeting twice a week throughout the summer, this class is designed for students with little to no biology background, preparing them for high school biology classes. This class will teach the same level of biology as the 9th grade classes in public schools and some private middle schools.​ Students will leave with prepared, with a complete, in-depth understanding of high school biology and honors biology topics.  The students will even conduct some experiments and submit lab reports.Textbook: Biology by Kenneth R. Miller

 

AP biology class

​Meeting twice a week throughout the summer, this class will preview the entire AP Biology course as laid out by the College Board, with a special emphasis on the most challenging chapters (photosynthesis, cell signaling, etc).
(The class is appropriate for students who have already completed a HS-level science course or that are highly motivated.)
Students will leave with a complete, in-depth understanding of all required AP Biology concepts.  (Those who are self-studying for the exam will still need to practice and review, but they will have a complete basic understanding of all required concepts.)
All past students have received a 4 or a 5 on their exams, even 9th graders and self-studiers.

 

Bio SAT II class

Are you ready for the October 1st SAT II Biology exam?
This class will help you prepare by reviewing every single subject necessary for the exam according to the College Board.  We will use practice questions from multiple sources and complete >5 practice exams before test date.
Recommended books: Campbell biology (any edition), Barons SATII Biology test prep.  (A biology background such as Freshman Biology is highly recommended.)

 

USABO class
This class is for first-time USABO competition students who are highly motivated.
​As recommended by the USABO organization, we will be covering every single chapter in the Campbell biology book (the official book of the competition), beginning in summer and continuing throughout the fall semester.  (Yes, this means you will also be fully prepared for the AP Bio and SATII bio.)
By beginning so early, we will not be too rushed, but students should still invest 2-5 hours every week reading and reviewing materials outside of class. (SpringLight will also offer a “cram” class over winter break, and 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)

Instructor Mrs. Webster: With over 10 years of tutoring and editing experience, Mrs. Webster teaches biology, test prep, and writing(including application writing).  Funny, articulate, and knowledgeable, she is often called “the best teacher” by her students.
Mrs. Webster’s students have been very successful indeed: her application-writing students have been accepted to Ivy League schools; her USABO students have made it to nationals; her ACT students have achieved dramatic, 10 point increases in their scores—and sometimes even perfect scores. 
Raised by Jewish tiger parents, Mrs. Webster was a National Merit Scholar, receiving 1560/1600 on her SATs and 5′s on her APs. Funded by a 30 thousand dollar writing scholarship, she earned a BS in biology with a minor in studio art from Lake Forest College, IL. She then studied neuroscience at UAB and received an MS in biomedical science.

1. Every class will review  physics concept Mechanics, Wave, Electromagnetic, Optical and Modern Physics.
2. Review the Questions over the years and explain the difficult ones, and help with the wrong problems.
 

How the Contest Works

Each year, approximately 10,000 students take a 40-question, 45-minute timed, multiple-choice test under their school’s supervision. The 2016 exam will be given between March 30 and April 15, 2016. Exam questions are based on topics and concepts covered in a typical high school physicscourse.

To enhance the distribution of awards, Division I is for first-year physics students and Division II is for second-year physics students. Each Division has 14 regions that have been established across the country to allow schools in each region to compete against one another. Specialized math and science schools compete in their own region.

Division: There are 2 divisions for students…

  • Division 01 - (Students will answer only questions 1 – 40)
    This is for students taking their first course in physics. The level of the course does not matter. Students taking AP Physics have an advantage in depth of material, but students in non-AP curriculum have an advantage of potentially discussing other topics on the contest that do not appear in the AP curriculum.
  • Division 02 -(Students will answer only questions 11 – 50)
    This is for students taking their 2nd physics course (or more)… OR students wishing a challenge… so anyone can take Div. 02
Winners are lists of
  • the overall top 10 students in each division
  • the overall top 5 schools in each division
  • the first and second place students in each division by region.
  • the top 4 schools in each region by division
  • a list of the top 20 student scores in each division that did not win a prize
