Mr. Ahn’s Perfect Circle
Mr. Ahn’s Perfect Circle (MAPC) is MEK’s elite competition math team for elementary and middle school students who are passionate about mathematics and want to take their skills to the next level.
Rookie Club and Pro Club
MAPC has two groups.
MAPC – Pro is for highly competitive students who are advanced math-lovers. In order to qualify they must take a 1-hour pre-competition math assessment. Learn more here. Pro students will prepare for official math competitions.
MAPC – Rookie is for students who love math and want to improve their skills. They do not need to take any qualifying assessment, but they will be working to eventually advance to MAPC – Pro.
Each MAPC class is divided into an elementary and middle school level:
- Rookie Club Team E: 4th to 5th grade
- Rookie Club Team M: 6th to 7th grade
- Pro Club Team E: 4th to 5th grade
- Pro Club Team M: 6th to 7th grade
Rookie Club Elementary Level
Students will develop a deeper understanding of fractions, ratios, proportions, percentages, number sense, and problem-solving skills. The training will support be designed to help them transition to higher level competition math.
Rookie Club Junior Level
Students will develop a deeper understanding or core Pre-Algebra ideas. One main focus will be to conceptualize and apply inverse and direct proportional thinking in problem-solving without the aid of variables. This is key to success in higher level math competitions.
Pro Club Elementary & Junior Level
- Mini Competitions (30 minutes): students complete math problems in a variety of topics
- Peer Workshop/Lecture (60 minutes): students collaborate to review Mini Competition work and learn about new problem-solving methods
Lectures are seminar-style, so students have a chance to exchange ideas, find differences in one another’s approaches, reach consensus, and connect with the material as they learn.
