- Registration begins August 1.
- Online Fall Classes will start in October.

**SET A**

**Class Information:**

- Students in grades 1-2 with limited or no math competition experience are invited to join the Exploring course.
- In this course, students will be introduced to 2D and 3D visualization as well as the problem-solving strategies of Draw a Picture, Find a Pattern, Make an Organized List, Build a Table, Work Backwards, and Guess and Check through a mixture of Level 1-2 Kangaroo problems.
- Homework for this course will be problems very similar to those seen in class to reinforce the use of the strategies taught each week.
- The course will culminate in working through the entire 2012 Level 1-2 contest together as a group.
- This class is planned to meet 10 times for 1 hour each.
- The class size: 12 students.
