Firecracker Math offers group classes and private instruction on extra-curricular math topics to kids Grades K-11. We spark children’s interest in math, deepen their knowledge and further develop their aptitude and talent in math.
Our curriculum focuses on exploration and understanding of mathematical concepts, and on teaching kids the skills
of problem-solving and logical reasoning. We foster a creative learning environment by employing well-trained, enthusiastic teachers with advanced degrees in math or science. Small group size ensures close teacher-to students interaction and attention to each child’s needs and pace of learning.
Students are introduced topics from number theory, geometry, combinatorics, probability, and more. We focus on conceptual understanding of a topic, on logical reasoning, and on problem-solving techniques. Theoretical instructions are combined with practical exercises that employ games, puzzles, and magic tricks to demonstrate mathematical concepts.
