DDC & IDEA MATH Summer Program 2019 DDC and IDEA MATH will hold IDEA MATH course from 15th July to 26th July (11 days excluding Sunday 21st July) at The British School of Beijing (BSB) Shunyi

DDC and IDEA MATH will hold IDEA MATH course from 15th July to 26th July  (11 days excluding Sunday 21st July) at The British School of Beijing (BSB) Shunyi

Children who are interested in mathematics need to be enlighten their talent in the best way! The DDC& American IDEA MATH program would be an excellent choice! DDC and IDEA MATH will hold IDEA MATH course in Beijing from 15th July to 26th July. Feng Zuming, the former head coach of the U.S. IMO, will come to Beijing to help you improve the art of mathematical problems solving.



IDEA MATH adopts the comprehensive and well-tested teaching materials, modeled after training material of the Philips Exeter Academy math team, one of the strongest teams in the U.S. Students will benefit for the rest of their lives by developing their leadership, learning, observation and thinking skills, and a positive attitude toward learning through IDEA MATH philosophy.

Our Philosophy

We believe that the study of mathematics is not linear. Rather, it is a network. Simple, but curious, facts are the nodes of this network. Studying mathematics is like building spirals around these nodes and making connections between the spirals. Mathematics is a field that demands not only flexibility with numbers, symbols, and geometric objects, but also the patience to be exposed to something which is completely new and different, eventually integrating it into an ever-widening but coherent body of knowledge. Curiosity is the real driver of mathematics, science, and technological explorations, however successes can be gained only by the repetitive, sometimes even torturous, processes of investigation, false starts, inspiration, and attention to detail.

Feng Zuming:

  • Former Head Coach of the U.S. IMO
  • Math Teacher of Philips Exeter Academy
  • Founder and Teaching Director of IDEA MATH



Course Content:

Pre-algebra (G4-6): Number theory, Real Numbers, Solving Equations, Proportions and Percentage, Exponents and Square Roots, Introduction to Graphing and Statistics, Triangles, Basic Counting& Probability;

Algebra +AMC8 (G6-7): Number line and Real number, Mixed algebra problems, Algebraic expression and operation, units and percentage, AMC8.

Advanced Algebra+ Geometry + AMC8-10 (G6-8): Linear systems and convex regions, Operations with Algebraic Expressions, Absolute Value Equations, Special Quadrilateral, Triangular Congruence, Trapezoid, Geometric Computations, AMC8-10.

In order to fulfill the potential of every student, DDC and IDEA MATH will cooperate to hold a Placement Test. We sincerely invite you and your child to take the Test. Feng Zuming, founder of IDEA MATH, former head coach of the U.S. IMO and general director of the MATH team at Phillips Exeter Academy, will introduce parents to the fascinating MATH courses and teaching methods of IDEA MATH. The detailed information is as follows:

Each test covers the preliminary knowledge that we expect students to have for the target curriculum. The first part is basic Knowledge, and the second part is more challenging.
