    Instructor: Sherene Raisbeck
    5-10 students
    Suggested Ages: 8-11 (not for junior high)

    Time: Fridays, 10:00am to 11:30 am Eastern time, starting September 13th

    NOTE: In the past, this course has been offered over two terms. We are offering it as a single term course with each meeting running 75-90 minutes. We believe this pace better serves our gifted students.

    DESCRIPTION

    Aristotle Leads the Way is the first of three works by Joy Hakim that present the major scientific innovations within the context of work performed by Aristotle, Newton, Einstein, and work which continues in theoretical physics.

    Learning how to observe the world, investigate ideas and sources, and find out what’s really true, are important skills for new scholars! Students develop a rich understanding of the science presented by tracing the historical context and experiments of the greatest thinkers in Western as well as Eastern scientific thought.

    As the first part of The Story of Science series, this class is an excellent foundation for further advanced work in science, mathematics, and computer science. It lays a foundation for Newton at the Center and Einstein Adds a New Dimension. In addition, the story-based instruction utilized will enhance retention for students who are not scientifically oriented. Over the course of the year, we will measure the circumference of the earth, the distance to the moon, and lay the foundations for atomic theory!

    Tests, homework, and grades are provided optionally and may be graded at home or by the instructor. We fully support 2e students and will tailor testing, homework, and class participation so that it is low stress and meaningful for each student. Students do need to be able to do simple multiplication with ratios.

    While some experiments are repeated from the Einstein and Newton courses, students will encounter them on a different level. These courses do NOT need to be taken in a particular order.

    Suggested Ages: enrollment based on ability, not age
    Meets: Fridays at 12:00 noon - 1:00 pm Eastern time, beginning September 10th
        

    Course Description

    This is an opportunity for students working on secondary mathematical concepts (pre-algebra, algebra, geometry & pre-calculus) to solve contest math problems (AMC 8, AIME, Math League, and more) *and* to access tutoring in a small group.  Your student may attend any or all of the 15 hours over the term for fixed rate. Maximum enrollment of 4 students per session.

    I own a wide variety of curricula, but feel free to check to see if I own the one your student is using if you seek tutoring/curricular support.

    Because these sessions are designed to work around individual students' strengths and challenges, there is no weekly syllabus.

    The full course is $350. GHF, SENG, MAGE (Mass), and NHAGE Members pay $330! (But no double dipping, sorry!) Multiple children? Talk to us! Single session $25, if space is available.

    Description

    Einstein Adds a New Dimension is the third of three works in Joy Hakim's Story of Science that present the major scientific innovations within the context of major works produced by Aristotle, Newton, Einstein, and progress which continues in theoretical physics.

    Learning how to make accurate and useful observations, investigate ideas, evaluate sources, and find out what’s really true, are important skills for scholars in all fields of endeavor.

    Students in Einstein Adds a New Dimension continue to develop their understanding of the historical context and great experiments of the world’s innovators.

    As the third part of The Story of Science series, Einstein Adds a New Dimension builds on the foundation set forward in the courses Aristotle Leads the Way and Newton at the Center.  Einstein Adds a New Dimension guides students through discoveries in modern physics, explaining the state of the science, while describing some of the current questions and areas of research.  Building on the themes in courses Aristotle and NewtonEinstein Adds a New Dimension helps students strengthen their solid basis of understanding, understand the nature and pace of change, and develop the insight, imagination, and skill to anticipate, jump in, and move forward with the new work of the future.

    Over the course of the year, we will explore the lines of evidence for the current theory of the universe; we will discover the nature of quarks and strings; and we will discuss alternative hypotheses and theories.  We will continue building the scaffold for later studies in science and other endeavors, and developing skills which will be used in career planning and development.

    Tests, homework, and grades are provided optionally and may be graded at home or by the instructor.  We fully support 2e students and will tailor testing, homework, and class participation so that it is low stress and meaningful for each student.  Students need to be able to do multiplication with fractions and ratios, and to understand the use of algebraic symbols.

    Some experiments are repeated from the Newton and Aristotle courses, students will encounter them on a different level. These courses do NOT need to be taken in a particular order.

    Please note that this is a one semester course!
