  1. Levels and Placement

The Laureates Academy Math and Computing Club program is divided into 14 distinct levels, Basic Levels (A-F), Intermediate Levels (G-J) and Advanced Levels (K-N).

Upon program entry, students undergo an initial assessment to determine the most suitable level for their current abilities. A second assessment is conducted within the first two weeks to finalize placement. Existing students are evaluated by their teachers to determine readiness for progression to the next level. It is important to note that placement is based on internal evaluations and a student’s demonstrated skills, rather than solely on age or academic grade. This allows for classes with students of various age groups who share similar abilities. Instructors provide comprehensive guidance to both students and parents regarding appropriate contest selection. This guidance takes into account each student’s unique strengths and abilities.

  1. Measures of Achievement and Homework Assignments

Students follow a comprehensive weekly curriculum designed to reinforce the concepts covered in class. Homework assignments and projects are strategically integrated to solidify understanding. Throughout the academic year, teachers administer regular quizzes to monitor student progress. Students take monthly official benchmark tests throughout the year. These test results, along with factors like class participation and homework completion, form the primary basis for evaluating a student’s readiness to progress to a higher level. The program strives for continuous improvement, aiming for positive outcomes in both regular school mathematics and internal assessments, as well as external competitions. If a student experiences difficulty advancing, the instructors will work collaboratively with the student and parents to identify and address any underlying challenges.

  1. Why contests?

Engaging in math and computing contests provides numerous benefits for students, particularly those with a passion for these subjects. Participating in these competitive events can be likened to athletes competing in tournaments or musicians performing in competitions, offering an exciting and challenging environment to showcase their skills. The Laureates Academy Math and Computing Club strives to nurture this passion and equip students with the necessary skills to excel in these domains. Contest preparation can significantly enhance a student’s:

  • Confidence and self-belief: Preparing and participating in competitions can instill a sense of self-assurance and belief in one’s abilities. The club’s history of success in regional and international contests further fosters a sense of pride and community within the program.
  • Problem-solving and critical thinking skills: Contests typically require creative approaches and strategic problem-solving, contributing to the development of valuable cognitive skills.
  • Collaboration and teamwork: Working with peers towards a common goal fosters collaborative skills and a sense of community among students with shared interests in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).
  • Academic preparation: Contest preparation reinforces mathematical and computational knowledge and skills, ultimately enhancing a student’s academic profile. Universities often seek students with demonstrably strong math and computing skills, and participation in these contests can provide evidence of a student’s commitment and ability. While mere participation offers advantages, achieving outstanding results represents a significant accomplishment. This benefit extends to students of all ages, as success often requires years of dedicated practice and preparation.

Compulsory Education

In 1739, Denmark became the first nation to declare education not a privilege, but a compulsory waltz for all its young minds. Soon, a domino effect swept across Europe and into the eager arms of North America. But with this shift from right to responsibility, a thorny question sprouted: who gets to craft the curriculum, the grand symphony of knowledge our children learn? Should the state be the domineering conductor, or should parents hold the sheet music close, whispering its lessons?  This age-old debate continues to resonate, a discordant note in the otherwise harmonious pursuit of learning. Head over to the Laureates Blog to explore the fascinating melody of this ongoing conversation!
