Math+: An Advanced Mathematics Learning Opportunity for 6th through 8th graders

Dear 6th through 8th grade parents,
This is John Russell, a Mathematics Instructor at Christian Brothers College High School. I have joined Redwood Prep to teach an Advanced Mathematics class, Math+, this Fall for 6th to 8th graders. This Fall’s course focuses on Probability. 
I strongly believe in Math+ and would encourage your family to participate. Each Math+ course explores 1 major idea included in Stanford University’s introductory math sequence. This is world-class content tailored to younger students. I continue to be impressed by how students get excited and passionate about math during Math+. We want students to be excited about math – and Math+ does a great job doing just that. 

This season’s course will be taught at Christian Brothers College High School on Mondays from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. starting on Monday, October 9th, for six weeks. The program will cost $250. Families can sign up at
As stated above, this Fall’s course focuses on Probability, a mathematical concept with both practical relevance and important mathematical applications. The course will teach probability while exploring many real-world applications, from finance to decision-making to poker. 

Most interested students can succeed in Math+. I find that students with a gift for math or a real desire to participate can succeed and learn a lot. Students interested in advanced math classes, high performance on standardized exams, or general math ability will particularly benefit. 

If you have any questions, please reach out. I hope to work with you and your family on this exciting program.
