Russian School of Mathematics

<< More Summer Camps

The Russian School of Mathematics (RSM) is an award-winning K-12 math program that encourages students to ask “why?” and not just “how?”

With three locations in Northern Virginia, you can find them in Ashburn, Herndon, and Tysons Corner. Their programs include afterschool opportunities, summer camps and classes, and year-round enrichment and skill-building programs.

The Russian School of Mathematics’ Statement on the Russian Military Invasion of Ukraine

RSM uses the rigorous study of mathematics to develop students’ math fluency, intellect, and character. Their students are guided to think about mathematics logically and conceptually, building deep connections between concepts, all in an environment of their peers that keeps them consistently challenged!

They invite you to learn more and schedule a free evaluation.

This summer, join the Russian School of Mathematics’ new Summer School Program! Students in grades 2-6 will have the opportunity to spend the day at RSM (8:30 am-4 pm). During a two-week session (Mon-Fri), kids will reinforce their math skills and enjoy more challenges from STEM courses as well!

2022 summer opportunities include:

Grade 2
Challenge and prepare your rising 2nd-grader for competitions like the Math Kangaroo. Have fun with non-standard problems requiring clever solutions. This course is perfect for those students who enjoy and seek out math challenges and who wish to explore non-standard questions.

This course uses RSM’s unique methodology to work with rising 2nd-graders on the development of their abstract thinking and reasoning ability. RSM sparks an early interest in mathematics by exploring numbers and the connections between them, studying geometric shapes, practicing math language development, and developing problem-solving skills.

This course allows rising 3rd-graders to explore abstract concepts intuitively. In addition, students will develop reasoning skills and explore and build a foundation in mathematical concepts such as operations with numbers and the connections between them, strategies for problem-solving, and geometric shapes.

Grades 3-4
Challenge and prepare your rising 3rd- and 4th-graders for national and international math competitions like the Math Kangaroo. Have fun with non-standard problems requiring clever solutions. This course is perfect for those students who enjoy and seek out math challenges and who wish to explore non-standard questions.

This course uses RSM’s unique approach to work with rising 4th-graders to develop their ability to use logic to reason through problems. Students will expand and apply their knowledge of operations, discover the secrets of mental calculations, and be challenged to apply their foundational knowledge of operating with numbers to composite problems and word problems.

Grades 5-6
Challenge and prepare your rising 5th- and 6th-grader for math competitions like the Math Kangaroo and MOEMS E and gain essential skills to start preparing for the AMC-8. While covering many topics, the focus is to teach students how to approach combinatorics, word, and logic problems. Special attention is paid to developing students’ mental math ability, a vital skill for success in various math contests. The curriculum incorporates in-class competitions, games, and other activities to make students’ learning active and engaging. Time constraints are added often so that students can practice thinking quickly and cleverly, as they will be expected to do in a real math competition.

This course is designed to guide rising 5th-graders to use logic to reason through problems. Students get ahead of the tracking that awaits them in middle school by developing their reasoning skills, advancing in efficient mental calculations, operating with signed numbers and fractions, and exploring early algebra. Special attention is given to word problems.

Grade 6
This course uses RSM’s unique methodology to prepare students for the algebra readiness assessment test. The course is designed to review and strengthen kids’ grasp of the topics that are essential for success. In addition, students will hone their test-taking skills by taking practice tests, where they will analyze and correct their mistakes with RSM’s experienced teachers.

Grades 2-4
Has your child ever wondered what lies beyond the stars or what lives deep under the ocean? Mission Exploration is a fun-filled course that teaches young explorers the world of science through a series of cool, individualized, hands-on experiments. RSM’s mission is to nurture curious minds to become tomorrow’s leaders in science and technology. The topics to be explored together include life science, Physics, Chemistry, STEM, and so much more!

Grades 4-6

In this unique course, students will hone their problem-solving and creative thinking skills as they discover a wide range of engineering and technology concepts through hands-on experiments using LWGO Mindstorms, Snap Electronics, student-designed handmade home appliances, computer assembly/disassembly, and more. Kids will also discuss historical STEM highlights and engineering careers.

Grades 5-7
In this course, students will leverage Python, a multipurpose programming language, to develop interactive games. As they progress toward building their games, kids will strengthen their algorithmic thinking skills and learn the principles of software development, style, and testing. Students will also learn about data structures, data analysis, computer graphics, and automation.
