Summer - Frequently Asked Questions

What are the two types of classes and how do I know which class to choose?
The two types of classes offered this summer are Fun Math and Competition Math.  In both classes kids practice math skills, out-of the box thinking, and problem solving. The focus of Fun Math is more on fun math games, logic problems, riddles and is a lively class that our students love. Competition Math is a more serious class (with its own share of fun problems). The emphasis is on presenting kids with various competition problem types to explore different ways of thinking and solving problems. Classes complement each other and many families choose to enroll in both.
Will you run your regular circles, summer intensives, Beast Academy review courses etc in the summer?
We will continue some of the circles from the year, as well as open new ones on demand.  If you have a specific interest for a course, please reach out!  info@engagingmathcircles.com  
How do I know which class to register for?
Select classes based on the grade level that your child will be in the fall of 2021.  If homeschooling - choose based on the level of math your child will be covering in the fall.  We can always adjust level / switch classes later if needed. 
How do I register for classes?
Please select the class/grade level you wish to register your child for and click the ‘register’ link next to it.  You will be taken to a registration form.  Please complete it to register for the class.  If you are a current EMC family you can register for the class through the Parent Portal. 
How long are the lessons? What is the fee?
Lessons are once a week and are 1 hr long.  The fee is $30 per class ($210 per session).  10% discount given off the total session fee if registering for both competition math and fun math lessons.
Are classes In Person or Online?
Classes will be online for the duration of the summer. 
How many students are in a class?
We teach in small groups.  We will aim for 6 students per class for the summer.  Make-up classes could alter that number occasionally.  Any time that the number of kids exceeds the capacity of the class, we will have another teacher come in and split the kids into two groups. 
I see many time slots available.  Can I sign up for more than one class? 
There are many time slots available for each class type to give parents the flexibility of choosing a summer schedule that works for their family.  Each class, however, is only taught once a week, repeating on different days/times.  If you register for two fun math classes, your student will be repeating the same material.  Please register for one fun math class and one competition math class if you would like a twice per week option.
What happens if we miss a class?
If you know you will miss a class, please give us 48hr notice to schedule a make-up.  You can make up in any of the other available time slots.  Each lesson is a standalone class.  If your student is registered for fun math they can make up in competition math, and vice versa; space permitting.     
Do families pay monthly, weekly, or per drop-in session?
In the summer, families pay per session.  The session is 7 weeks.  Session fee for the classes that fall on the 4th of July weekend is adjusted to reflect the fewer number of classes.  You only pay for the lessons that are held! 
What happens if we go on a long vacation?
Talk to us if you have a vacation planned.  We will be able to adjust your enrollment as needed.  We can work out make-up days and/or pause enrollment for that period.  A week’s notice in writing is required to make any vacation related pauses.
None of the times work for me, but I really want to join your school. What can I do?
Talk to us!  We open new groups all the time.  4 kids is the minimum for starting a new group.  Invite your friends!
We registered for a certain grade level, but after a few lessons the class seems to hard/too easy for my child
Talk to us!  It is easy to switch groups.
