The Mathematics department has planned a mathematically intense, yet fun-filled summer for your child/children. As we end this academic year, and keeping the beginning of next school year in mind, we are pleased to once again offer Math Mania this coming summer (June 20th – July 1st). The cost of each course is $190 inclusive of VAT and course materials. These special courses will be held Monday-Friday. Math Mania is designed to accomplish two goals:
1. JUMPSTART PROGRAMME & BRIDGING THE GAP- To give students a head start by exposing them to the concepts they will cover in the upcoming school year; and
2. MATH BOOSTER PROGRAMME - To strengthen students’ skills at the BGCSE Core level, as success in future courses such as the BGCSE Extended, SATII, and AP Calculus AB courses will require a mathematically sound foundation.
