The Grade 7 curriculum has a focus on problem solving through 12 topics such as patterns in counting shapes, Pascal’s Triangle, number Bases, combinations, measurement, and among others. Students also work on some of the most challenging types of questions found in contest-level math problems in their independent assignments known as Challengers. In this grade, we foster students’ individual accountability as well as their teamwork accountability. In class, students are empowered to ask questions, share solutions, and take the risks that are necessary for higher learning. Through problem solving, they learn to ask the right questions, pay attention to details, show perseverance, and more. All grade 7 students write an examination at the end of the year. The overall curriculum is engaging to our Grade 7 students and the weekly 1.5-hour class is fast-paced.
