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

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。

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)
