Math Masters Spring 2022
Math Masters A
Math Masters A will run every Wednesday (except for Spring Break in early April) from January 12th to April 27th. This course is taught by multiple high schoolers who have excelled in mathematics competitions, with the objective of offering enrichment towards math beyond the typical school level. There is recommended homework in this class, and the cost of the class is free.
What is Math Masters?
Math Masters is a program started in Fall of 2019 by a group of high schoolers who traveled to local elementary schools in Palo Alto to teach students new and interesting concepts outside of the normal school curriculum. The founder of the program, Alan Lee, aims to make this program accessible to all this coming semester due to the current pandemic situation.
As Math Masters enters its third year as a program, we have evolved the program to cater to both our new and returning students. The Math Masters A track will cover similar material the that covered in previous sessions, while Math Masters Problem Solving will deal with much more difficult concepts.

"[My student] learned confusing or rather challenging concepts in easy and fun ways. He felt very comfortable taught by teachers at the similar age...the instructors are like role models to him! His mom never had to remind him about the class every Monday since he was looking forward to it! The curriculum was clearly written every week and very well organized overall."
