  • Middle School Math Refresher

    Term 1: June 15 – July 2 (3 weeks)
    9:50 am - 11:00 am
    Term 2: July 6 – July 24 (3 weeks)
    9:50 am - 11:00 am
    $330 per 3-week session
     
    This refresher program will provide students with additional instruction on and opportunity to practice the concepts/skills present 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.

    $330 per 3-week session
     
    This 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, solving and graphing linear inequalities.
  • Algebra I (Full Credit)

    Students entering Grades 8 - 12
    June 15 – July 24 (6 weeks)

    Algebra I is a full-credit, fast-paced course in first-year algebra (regular level), designed primarily for good mathematics students who have not had the opportunity to accelerate their progress in the middle school years. This course can be taken by those wanting to comprehensively review Algebra before enrolling in Algebra II in the fall. Non-Hawken students may also utilize this course as a way to re-take Algebra I in order to strengthen a grade. 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. The daily schedule will consist of group sessions with the instructor and independent student work sessions. Students will also be expected to do additional work at home each day. Hawken students must see their current math teacher about a mandatory permission form prior to taking this course for credit. This form will be reviewed by the chair of the math department before registration can be finalized. 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.
  • Algebra II (Full Credit)

    Students entering Grades 9 - 12
    June 15 – July 24 (6 weeks)
    9:00 am - 1:20 pm
    $1,275

    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 who take this course are awarded full academic credit for Algebra II. 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.
  • Geometry (Full Credit)

    Students entering Grades 9 - 12
    June 15 – July 24 (6 weeks)

    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 see their current math teacher about a mandatory permission form prior to taking this course for credit. This form will be reviewed by the chair of the math department before registration can be finalized. Non-Hawken students need to check with their school to determine if the class will be accepted for credit.
