  • Middle School Math Refresher – REMOTE FORMAT

    June 13 - July 1 (3 weeks) 
    9:50 am - 11:00 am or 1:30-2:40 pm
    July 5 – July 22 (3 weeks)
    9:50 am - 11:00 am or 1:30-2:40 pm
    $435 per 3-week session
     
    This remote refresher program will provide students with additional instruction on and opportunity to practice the concepts/skills presented in middle school mathematics and pre-algebra while receiving feedback from the teacher to guide improvement. Areas of focus will include solving proportional relationships and unit rate; conversions between decimal, percentage, and fraction forms; graphing a line and different forms of a linear equation; distributive property, fraction clearing with LCM; and balancing equations and solving for unknowns.
  • Algebra 1 Refresher – REMOTE FORMAT

    June 13 - July 1 (3 weeks) 
    11:10 am - 12:20 pm
    July 5 – July 22 (3 weeks)
    11:10 am - 12:20 pm
    $435 per 3-week session
     
    This remote refresher program will provide students with the opportunity to review and practice essential Algebra 1 concepts while receiving feedback from the teacher to guide improvement. Areas of focus will include laws of exponents, exponential functions, completing the square and vertex form of a quadratic equation, writing and solving systems of equations, and solving and graphing linear inequalities.
  • Algebra II (Full Credit) – IN-PERSON FORMAT

    Students entering Grades 9 - 12
    June 13 – July 22 (6 weeks)
    8:30 am - 12:20 pm
    $1,700
     
    In addition to reviewing and expanding on the material in Algebra I, this rigorous, fast-paced, full credit course covers complex numbers; polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions; systems in two and three variables; sequences and series; introductory trigonometry; introductory probability; and applications of all of these topics. Instruction will emphasize multiple representations of concepts, including a strong expectation of technology use (graphing calculators and dynamic Web-based tools). Daily sessions will combine independent, group, and instructor-led work sessions. Students will be expected to complete additional work at home in preparation for each class. Hawken students must have permission from the Math Department Chair prior to taking this course for academic credit. Non-Hawken students need to check with their school to determine if the class will be accepted for credit.
  • Geometry (Full Credit) – REMOTE FORMAT

    Students entering Grades 9 - 12
    June 13 – July 22 (6 weeks)
    9:00 am - 1:20 pm
    $1,700
     
    Geometry is a full-credit course in Euclidean plane and solid geometry, designed for strong mathematics students. The daily schedule of this fast-paced course will consist of group sessions with the instructor and independent student work sessions. Each day’s work is roughly equivalent to a week of classes during the regular school year, so missing class due to trips out of town or other events is greatly discouraged. Students will also be expected to do additional work at home each day. Hawken students must have permission from the Math Department Chair prior to taking this course for academic credit. Non-Hawken students need to check with their school to determine if the class will be accepted for credit. This remote class will be a combination of synchronous (online) and asynchronous (independent) work and students are expected to begin synchronous attendance at 9:00 a.m. each morning.
