Sometimes it's just easier to not do the work. According to a recent study, 42% of freshmen at Harvard admitted to cheating on homework assignments, putting you in good company if you often feel like you've got better things to do than another worksheet. [1] X Research source Instead of going about it foolishly and copying off your friend right before class starts, get smart about your cheating. You can learn the best ways to finish off your math homework, your reading, and even cut some serious corners on your essays.

Cheating on Math or Short-Answer Homework

Step 1 Copy the answers from a friend.

  • First, you've got to make friends with the smartest kids in class, who always do the work correctly. It helps if you can share in the workload sometimes, alternating who does the homework and who copies, night to night. Don't be totally useless.
  • The best times to copy homework are on the bus on the way home, or on the way to school. It's usually better to do it on the way home, so you can still try to actually do the homework if you need to. Never copy homework in class before class starts. Never talk about copying the answers in public, to your parents, or to other students. Keep it quiet.
  • If you use this method, paraphrase. It does cause a little suspicion when two students have the exact same answer.

Step 2 Work on the assignment with a group.

  • To make the homework go faster, split up all the answers among the group. Have one person do the first five, another do the next five, and so on. You should be able to finish before the bus ride is over. Try to keep the group as small as possible.
  • Don't make the group too big. If everyone names the first president of the United States as "George Washington Carver" on the homework, your teacher might be suspicious that something strange was happening. After you copy it, go back over it once by yourself to fix any obvious mistakes and make little changes to make it your own.

Step 3 Change the wording of your answers.

  • Even just fixing the order of words in short answers can throw a teacher off the scent, if the answer is correct. Change "John Glenn was the first American in space" to "The first American in space was John Glenn."
  • To stay extra covert, try to copy off of someone that your teacher doesn't think you're friends with. The teacher may be more likely to look more closely at the homework for signs of cheating if you're neighbors with someone, or if you're sitting next to someone.

Step 4 Google the answers.

  • If you find your answers off the internet, make sure to paraphrase it so your teachers don't find out. Teachers are smart these days, so if you copy it directly, they could definitely find out.

Step 5 Get some answers wrong to throw your teacher off.

  • Online tutoring even exists in some places. Some college students will sometimes answer homework questions or offer assistance online, sometimes for a price. [2] X Research source If you can send copies of the questions, you might at least get some help figuring out the answer for yourself.

Reading Fast

Step 1 Skip everything but the first and last sentence of each paragraph.

  • Skip everything but the vocab words in a textbook. The skipping-around method tends to work better with textbooks, in which the actual explanations aren't that important, but the names and the vocab words are. You can read the textbook very fast this way, and not miss much information.
  • Alternatively, depending on the kind of class, it might be better to read the first and last chapter of a novel, or focus all your attention on a single small part of the book and bring it up in class, to look as if you've read the whole thing and are prepared for discussion.

Step 2 Skip to the chapter summary in the textbook.

  • It's also easy to find a long plot synopsis online, so you can at least get a good list of the characters and the style of the novel.

Step 4 Break up the reading with friends.

  • Ask your friends to summarize their 50 assigned pages (or however many it works out to be) and take good notes on the section, then copy out the notes for everyone in the group. After that, each person's work will be done. It's like reading a whole book by only reading 1/3 or a 1/2.

Step 5 Watch the movie.

  • It's still a good idea to do some research and figure out whether or not the movie is accurate. Lots of movies take serious liberties with the plot lines of books, and you'll likely miss the names of characters and other minor plot points that might get cut out of the movie but be important for the book.
  • Good movies based on books commonly assigned for school include: Grapes of Wrath , Romeo & Juliet , Lord of the Flies,' Pride & Prejudice , Wuthering Heights , Of Mice and Men , and To Kill a Mockingbird .
  • Bad movies to watch instead of reading the book include The Iliad ('don't watch 'Troy , starring Brad Pitt), Fahrenheit 451 , Catcher in the Rye , Beowulf , Romeo & Juliet , and The Great Gatsby . These are good ways to prove you haven't read the book.

Step 6 Find at least one thing to say in class.

  • It's also a good idea to look for possible talking-points online before you even do the reading, so you can know what to look for and have a good idea of something to say in class. Participation points with no actual work.

Cheating on Essays

Step 1 Make friends with an older student or sibling with old essays.

  • Many older teachers will assign the same papers year after year, and won't keep copies of them, making it very difficult for them to remember one students paper after a year or two. Never do this if your teacher collects essays online, or saves digital copies. This makes it very easy to do a quick file search and find copied passages.
  • Buying essays online is basically a scam for chumps, so don't get schemed out of your hard-earned lunch money by some enterprising con artist. If you don't know the person you're getting the essay from, write it yourself. In general, paying to cheat is a bad idea, friend, sibling, or otherwise.

Step 2 ”Translate” the sentences into your own words.

  • Make sure the response to the topic is still up-to-date and not incriminating. If you see opportunities to expand and make more current references, do it to bring everything together.
  • Never copy-paste from online and turn it in without revising. If you do, go over the font and the size to make sure everything is uniform.
  • Copying passages or whole chunks of text from online is always easy to find quickly. If you try this, you risk lots of trouble.

Step 3 Make sure you understand the topic thoroughly.

  • Read the assignment sheet closely as you go over the copied essay, making sure that it does everything that it needs to for you to get a good grade. If it doesn't, you need to add that in. Hey, at least you didn't have to start from scratch.

Step 5 Understand the consequences of plagiarism.

Did You Know? In countries such as Bangladesh and Singapore, this is criminalized and carries severe penalties.

Expert Q&A

  • Copy down friend's work the day its assigned because most people do it in class. Thanks Helpful 0 Not Helpful 0
  • If your homework questions are straight from a textbook, the internet will most likely have answers for them. If you are lucky, you can find a PDF of the teacher’s textbook, which has all the answers. Thanks Helpful 0 Not Helpful 0

Tips from our Readers

  • If your homework questions come straight from a textbook, you can often find the answers online or in a PDF version of the teacher's book. But just copying the textbook's answers word-for-word is dishonest. Use any answers you find as a guide, but explain things in your own words.
  • If an assignment's got you stumped, get help ASAP instead of waiting until the last minute. Talk to your teacher, go to tutoring, or study with friends who get the material. Being proactive will leave you truly prepared, not desperately seeking shortcuts.
  • With group projects, make sure everyone pulls their weight. Don't let some kids copy your work while they slack off. Set ground rules for dividing up the work and keeping each other accountable.
  • If you get busted copying someone's work, don't make excuses or blame others. Own up to your mistake, take the consequences, and learn from it. Your character matters more than one assignment.
  • Prioritize homework by due dates and percentage of each one's worth. It is better to fully complete a big project than rush through busy work just to check it off. Use your time wisely.
  • Break up long readings into 30-45 minute chunks. Take short breaks between sessions to stay focused and absorb more than just cramming it all in one mega study blast.

  • Be discreet. Don't suddenly start getting top marks, ensure you make a slow and steady transition or everyone will know you are cheating. Thanks Helpful 4 Not Helpful 0
  • Some teachers understand that there isn't much they can do to prevent students from copying solutions either from friends or off the internet. Instead, well-written exams will enforce the no copying solutions policy better than the teacher can. Homework will be worth only a small portion of the grade while exams will be the main grade determiner. If you have been copying homework solutions, you may be in trouble when it comes to the exams. Thanks Helpful 2 Not Helpful 1
  • Just because you aren't caught directly cheating doesn't mean that people don't know that you're cheating. News about who cheats gets around the school fast. Don't be surprised if people seem to not want to trust you anymore. Thanks Helpful 2 Not Helpful 2

Why thousands of american parents are sending their kids to 'russian math', copy the code below to embed the wbur audio player on your site.

When Larisa Itina was emigrating from Russia in 2000, her son Boris told her not to bother packing all the toys, games and puzzles she'd collected for helping children learn math.

He said, " 'Mother, you will never use this in the United States,' " she recalls. "All of the people I know said to me, 'You will never teach in the United States. It's not possible.' "

They were very wrong. These days, Itina helps run a thriving after-school program in Brighton called the Studio of Engaging Math . Turns out, a great many American parents want to send their kids to what most of us call simply "Russian math." (As in my nagging refrain when my own children were younger and went to Itina's studio: "Have you done your Russian math homework yet?")

From Newton to Brooklyn, from Dallas to San Jose, "Russian math" is a rising trend, driven by a fast-growing chain called the  Russian School of Mathematics . With 22,000 students at latest count, the school is the giant among Russian math programs, boasting 15 branches in Massachusetts, where it began, and 40 in total across the country.

One of those 22,000 students is 10-year-old Liv Davidson from Wellesley, who has been coming to the Russian School of Mathematics since kindergarten. She says she finds it fun — and helpful with her regular-school math: "Well, it's more challenging than school math — way more challenging," she says. "It's like, the next level of math, so I've already learned the stuff I learn in school, which makes it easier."

&quot;We are taking what the Soviets did the best -- math education -- and we bring it out of that awful closed society to the free world,&quot; says Russian School of Mathematics co-founder Inessa Rifkin. (Jesse Costa/WBUR)

Inessa Rifkin, who co-founded the school 20 years ago in Newton, says that one-fifth of the town's elementary school students come to the Russian School of Mathematics these days. "We are taking what the Soviets did the best — math education — and we bring it out of that awful closed society to the free world," she says.

Where, it turns out, demand is rising along with the increasing emphasis on math education.

"I've read articles that, in the future that the kids will live in, math will be one of the most important skills, in addition to computer science," says Lisa Watanabe, whose daughter attends the Russian School of Mathematics branch in Brookline. "I just feel that if she's strong in math, it will open so many doors."

Students usually attend once a week, at a cost of about $2,000 a year. In towns where it's popular, Russian math has a somewhat daunting reputation for rigor — and thick packets of homework.

Rifkin says the school's curriculum is based on Russian teaching traditions that emphasize reasoning and deeper understanding early on, not just memorization and practice drills. "The child should be brought to abstract level as soon as possible," she says, "meaning early introduction of algebra and geometry, not only arithmetic," and helping children figure out principles for themselves rather than spoon-feeding them.

After-school math — what’s called math "enrichment" — is not new, from global chains like Kumon , which originated in Japan, to private tutoring and the online Khan Academy . But Russian math as a big "thing" among American schoolchildren is relatively new — and it's spreading so quickly that some parents say they worry their children will be at a disadvantage if they don’t go to Russian math.

Some parents send their children to Russian math because they're dissatisfied with their school curriculum, or because their child simply loves math and wants more, says professor Jon Star, who researches math education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

For some, there's also an element of keeping-up-with-the-Joneses.

"They may feel that their child will be behind in school if they don't get the after-school help," Star says, "and it sort of leads to this kind of arms race, if you will, of after-school math instruction."

The Real Arms Race

The story of Russian math in America begins with a real arms race: the nuclear face-off between the Soviet Union and the United States during the Cold War. To bolster its science, the Soviet Union created elite math-and-physics schools and funneled the smartest math-minded kids into them.

"Russia has a brilliant mathematical tradition," says professor emeritus Loren Graham of Harvard and MIT, a leading American historian of Russian science. "There was a time in the Soviet period when Moscow was, in my opinion, the strongest center of mathematics in the world. Then it was hurt a lot by emigration — but it’s still strong."

That emigration, mainly of Russian Jews, began as a trickle in the 1970s. But as the Iron Curtain lifted, it turned into a great exodus, including an estimated half a million people who came to the U.S., many to the Boston area.

"I always tell my children, 'If you think about our immigration, we didn’t have anything, you know that, only education,' " says Rifkin, of the Russian School of Math.

She emigrated with her family in 1988 from Minsk, where she worked as a mechanical engineer, to Boston. She and her husband adapted quickly — they found work and bought a home in Newton. Life in America was working out well, until her son Ilya was in eighth grade and she got a life-changing shock: She realized he didn't know any of the math she expected him to know at that age.

"So I started to talk to other Russian families, and they had all the same problem," she recalls. "And the main problem wasn't even attitude; the main problem was performance in math and science. And all of us engineers, and all of us making money with math and science, this is what let us become independent so quickly. And our kids, they don't know it, so what are they going to do?"

When the Russian School of Mathematics opened at her home in 1997, she expected mainly Russian immigrant families to enroll, and many do. But with the rising importance of technology and science in the economy, plenty of other families see the virtues of Russian math, too.

A few voices from parents who send their children to the Brookline branch:

Joanna Messing: "We looked at the American mathematics program and American scores, and it was underwhelming to say the least." Dominic Nicholas: "[Our son] had some natural proclivity for math, and we wanted to have him reach his maximal potential. And it didn't feel like that was necessarily going to happen in public school." Rafael Irizarry: "Our biggest fear was that she would think math was boring and not interesting and not like it, and Russian math has saved us from that."

Deep Understanding Of 'Why'

Slava Gerovitch, a math historian at MIT, says that despite the American parental shorthand, there’s actually no single thing called "Russian math."

"It’s not that the Russians particularly have a gene for math or anything like that," he says. "But I think there are some systemic features of the Soviet school system that helped kids learn math easier and better."

Among them: strong training for teachers, and well-honed textbooks used by virtually the entire country. They were "not just sets of problems but also deep explanations," Gerovitch says, helpful references if students couldn't understand classroom work.

"The way Russians teach is that they make sure that every student, when they perform a mathematical operation, they understand why it is performed this way, not just learn how to do it," Gerovitch says.

Itina, at the Studio of Engaging Math, helped write some of those Russian textbooks, and now enlivens and adapts that material for children in Brighton. She says math inevitably involves some work — just as playing an instrument requires practice — but the key to teaching math to kids is to understand that they can work well only if they're emotionally invested.

"If I give to a child some problem in the academic style, he will say, 'I don't understand that, I hate it,' and go away," she says.

So a typical math problem at the studio might involve the geometry of a princess' castle, says Itina's daughter, Anya, who teaches there. Students at the studio play extensively with "manipulatives," shapes and puzzles that help them learn using their hands — a collection vastly expanded beyond the paraphernalia Itina brought from Russia.

"What I think I do," Anya Itina says, "is to develop critical thinking, as well as certain math skills, through understanding and not memorization, while trying to make it more fun, in small groups."

Here's the irony: To Americans, she teaches "Russian math," but as the product of real Russian schools, she can see how dramatically "Russian" teaching in this country differs from back in the USSR. For example, in contrast to big Russian classes at regimented desks, the studio teaches only in small groups of a half-dozen children around a table. And it divides the groups by ability levels, so it might have five or six different leveled groups for children who are all in the same grade at school.

"This is not a Russian thought," Anya Itina says. "Russian thought is everyone learning the same way."

At a recent Studio of Engaging Math class for kindergartners, the students solve some basic addition and subtraction problems on paper, but also a harder puzzle that teacher Elina Starobinets presents on the chalkboard:

First line: A blank box shaped like a triangle + a blank box shaped like a circle = 12. Second line: A triangle box + a triangle box = 16.

The kids figure out right away that the triangles have to be 8 and so the circle has to be 4, but Starobinets pushes them a little further:

"Why did you start with the triangles first?" She calls on Sonia Shroff, who's raising her hand. In a piping but confident voice, Sonia asserts her idea: "You should do the bottom one first, because they're the same."

Right, Starobinets affirms. "They're the same number, so I'm only guessing one number."

Sonia has just derived the principle that it's best to solve equations with only one unknown. At age 6.

Challenges For American Schools?

The rise of Russian math classes can pose challenges for American schools. For example: when a teacher introduces a new topic, only to find that a quarter of the students have already covered it in Russian math.

Some teachers find Russian math may also make some kids overconfident about how well they understand a math topic, says Steven Rattendi, the chair of the math department at Newton South High School.

And there’s concern that Russian math could increase the math performance gaps between rich and poor, between families that can afford $2,000 a year for weekly after-school classes and those that can’t.

But Russian math also seems to be helping to expand the pool of American kids who are comfortable with math. In every town where the Russian School of Math establishes itself, says co-founder Rifkin, "very quickly the number of honors classes, especially in high school, grows tremendously."

At Newton South, the percentage of students in honors math classes has gone up from about 20 percent to 30 percent over the last decade, Rattendi says. But is that thanks to Russian math? Without data, he cannot say.

He does worry that the sheer numbers of students in Russian math may add to pressure on parents and kids.

"'My neighbor's child is in Russian math, I need to be in Russian math,' " Rattendi says he hears. "And I think the answer to that is probably no. You don't have to be in Russian math to be successful in math. Does extra math certainly help? Absolutely. I can't take that away. Just like extra music lessons outside the school day are going to make you better at playing the violin."

Russian math teaching methods have not been extensively studied by American researchers, says Harvard professor Star, probably because Russia doesn't top the list of international math scores as, say, Singapore and Finland do.

But its popularity has reached the point, he says, that if it is making public school teachers' jobs harder because it increases the gaps among students, then "we have to think about what challenges this creates for the school system and how we can solve those challenges. And that's something that we should be doing."

It remains to be seen how big Russian math will grow, and what effect it will have overall.

For now, at the individual level, Rifkin says her teachers see a difference when their students face a hard problem. They go from a knee-jerk "I don't get it," she says, to "Hmmm, let me think..."

Who can take benefit from RSM

RSM has one of the most dynamic curricula and a passionate team. The team comprises of knowledgeable individuals who work day in and day out and help add innovative research into the kid’s mental upbringing.

The curriculum is quite unique in the USA and all the lessons are designed keeping in mind the concepts that are introduced earlier years. The teaching method is quite unique and doesn’t only teach for the sake of taking a test or rushing through concepts.

The goal of the course is to provide students with insights about deep mathematical how-know. This is going to help students develop the habit of critical thinking.

To accomplish this RSM takes the following things in mind and make sure that students and teachers follow the right direction and make the learning process easier. These areas covered by:

Being Patient:

It is nothing to worry about the level of mathematical proficiency that is associated with the kid. The course and study material are designed in a systematic way to make things equally challenging for students.

Students also feel enthusiasm when they experience victory in a challenging situation. The curriculum and study material at RSM is designed keeping in view this intellectual level of your kid.

It is ok if the kid doesn’t catch up with the lectures and the lessons at first. One has to be patient if one has to learn a new skill or simply mathematics. When the time comes and the kid becomes skillful enough it automatically becomes a confidence booster for the kid.  

The Goal Is To Make RSM Feel Like A Family:

The kids are a reflection of what their parents are. If any of the parents are skillful in maths then the kid is going to find the subject quite interesting as well. It is a good approach that you involve your child in a discussion.

Also, it is a good idea if you would appreciate your child while he does his homework. The idea is to make studying mathematics a fun-filled experience.

Don’t Be Shy If You Don’t Understand A Question of Rsm Student Portal:

RSM Homework Answers Help

The math problems are designed to meet the needs of the modern-day approaches to mathematics.

Students are required to apply different steps and methods and get the correct answers for themselves.

The problems are created in a way that they always keep the hunger to get more and more done in the class and at home.

Make Sure That Your Kid Owns Their Homework:

The assignments and homework given to the kids are designed in a way to actually build confidence and boost their confidence level.

This is going to help them learn stuff more effectively and efficiently.

If the kid successfully solves problems without major assistance then it’s good.

If not and he is getting stuck on a problem, then it is time to explain it to him and make sure that you help him learn the difficult aspects of the problem.

This is why this exercise is very beneficial to help them own the learning process. Make sure that you identify aspects of the problem where your kid needs your guidance and help.

Involve Your Kid’s Teacher in the Process:

A teacher is qualified enough to have a broader picture of the kid and another aspect of his or her personality.

It is something good and very helpful for the kid to use different resources at their disposal to get in touch with their teacher.

One can simply communicate with their teachers using messages, emails, and phone calls, etc.

Parents can guide their kids regarding the adequate use of such devices.

RSM is one of the best institutions that is working to make the most out of their resources at hand. With a huge network of students.

Campuses and schools RSM becomes one of the high-ranking institutions working to make students shine in the field of Mathematics.

The success of an educational institution rests with the success of the students.

Russian School of Math co-founder blasted for saying Ukraine shares blame in death toll

The co-founder and CEO of the nationally-known Russian School of Mathematics and a related summer camp for children is under fire from some parents and supporters of Ukraine.

In comments posted to a private Facebook page for the school's summer program that were later shared on other public platforms, Inessa Rifkin suggested that Ukraine’s president shared blame for the mounting civilian deaths caused by Russia’s invasion. Rifkin's post challenged those who support Ukraine, and said that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy bore some responsibility for the loss of life there by refusing to "surrender peacefully" to Putin.

On the private RSM summer camp Facebook page, Rifkin wrote:

“Ukraine had a choice of surrender peacefully with min human casualties and min property loss to Putin. President Zelensky made a choice to fight back. He is risking not only his own life but by now thousands of civilians already lost their lives, among them a lot of children. On top of it almost 3,000,000 people become refugees. Theoretically one could argue that President Zelensky also, not only Putin, is responsible for human suffering. Was he right? Did he have a right to decide for other people’s children?"

According to RSM’s website, the school was founded in 1997 by Rifkin and Irina Khavinson in Massachusetts. Rifkin, born in Belarus, and Khavinson, from Ukraine, were immigrants from the Soviet Union. The first class was held in Rifkin's home in 1997 using methods from Soviet math academies. Two years later, the first dedicated school building opened in Newton. RSM grew nationwide and today includes more than 50 schools in 12 states, Washington DC, and Canada.

Immediately following Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the school issued a statement condemning the war. But Rifkin's subsequent comments produced an immediate backlash, locally and nationally.

In the parking lot at RSM's building in Newton, Massachusetts, a woman dropping off her son said she had not heard about the controversy and was taken aback when told about the words attributed to the school's founder.

"It's unfortunate. I don't feel great about it." she said. "The school sent out an email that I felt was supportive of Ukraine earlier when the war first started. So that's not great."

She and others waiting in vehicles did not want their names used for this story. But Kathy Eno of Newton, whose daughter has attended RSM for 10 years, while praising the program also said it was important for those who disagree with Rifkin on this issue to speak out. GBH News reached her by phone.

"I vehemently disagree with her view on this topic, of course. And I've always had a lot of respect for her," said Eno. "But in this case, I'm completely opposed to this statement and I'm in agreement with the other parents that have also expressed the same. I think she runs a wonderful school, and I don't think this is the place for her to come out and say such divisive comments like this."

Another parent, Olena Stadykuk, went even further in her condemnation. Originally from Ukraine, Stadykuk said she no longer supports RSM. Speaking to GBH News from her home in Northern California, Stadykuk said Rifkin's stated position presumes that Zelenskyy had a real option in ending the bloodshed in her home country.

"I was really upset about it because that statement assumes that Ukrainians have the choice. And that statement assumes that surrendering is just a change in political power that doesn't cause any additional harm to people," she said.

GBH News attempted to get a response from Rifkin or other RSM officials in person at the school's Newton location and was greeted by campus principal Angela Eidelman, who requested we take a seat in the waiting room of the school and said that someone would be right out to speak with us about this controversy. Eidelman walked into an office with another staffer, closed the door, and emerged within minutes to say, "there is no one here to speak with you. But we will call you.” No one did, and all further inquiries from GBH News went unanswered.

In a follow-up statement on the school's Facebook page Tuesday, Rifkin addressed the concerns over her criticism of Zelenskyy:

"Two days ago, I posted a series of provocative questions in our Camp RSM group, a private Facebook group for families that attend my long-running overnight summer camp of 25 years. Unlike our school (in which politics is never discussed in our classrooms), my camp hosts 'serious nights' to allow campers to openly discuss current events.

The questions I proposed in the Camp RSM group were the starting points for discussion for one of these 'serious nights,' and were purposefully controversial in nature, as all of the questions I pose to my older campers are. Over the years, I have posed similar questions about the Holocaust, Israel, and many other topics. I am a teacher, and the purpose of these questions is always the same - to challenge my campers to think, to develop clear and logical arguments for not only their viewpoints but to also understand opposing viewpoints and how to argue against them."

Some parents pushed back against Rifkin's suggestion that her original statement was intended as an excercise in Socratic thinking, noting that her questions were preceded by "the following is my stand." The school's Facebook page was flooded with more than 500 comments, many critical of Rifkin and others defending her leadership, if not her contentious remarks. GBH News confirmed the authenticity of the comments quoted.

One indignant parent said she was from Ukraine and had already pulled her child out of RSM. Another individual identified as Igor Grunskiy asked, “Inessa Rifkin do you think you owe apology for all the damage and confusion caused by your choice of words?”

Someone named Anastasiya Qu wrote: “Asking question 'if Zelensky is responsible for people suffering' sounds like 'should rape victim be responsible for the rape'? And imagine this question is being asked by a doctor to a victim to promote critical thinking?'”

That statement assumes that surrendering is just a change in political power that doesn't cause any additional harm to people. Olena Stadykuk, Ukrainian immigrant and former RSM parent

But Rifkin also had her defenders.

A woman named Elena Ulanovski cheered Rifkin, addressing her by her nickname: “We with you Inna! Proud of you as always.”

Someone else named Yudit Bolotovsky wrote: “To the people who disagree or find negativity in Mrs. Rifkin’s posts or actions- totally their loss completely. Their kids can miss out on wonderful opportunities to grow and understand their culture.”

Alexander Sova, a Ukrainian immigrant whose children attend RSM in the San Francisco Bay area, said in a phone interview with GBH News that the positions held by Rifkin, who is open about having deeply conservative views, are no different than the views put forth by FOX News' Tucker Carlson and others in conservative media.

He said while he disagrees with Rifkin, he "would not blame her exactly right now. I think she is a victim of these conservative pundits and she made a mistake. And she kinda apologized." Sova added, "Inna has always said she is pro-Ukrainian and she did a lot of good stuff for Ukrainian refugees, but it's very possible to be for Ukrainians and still hold this position."

On Tuesday, the school re-issued its official statement on Ukraine made weeks ago that reflected RSM's co-founders' own experiences as Jewish refugees fleeing the Soviet Union.

"We are keenly aware that their fate could have been ours. It could have been our children, spouses, and siblings caught up in a war they didn't ask for," the statement read.

One commentator on Facebook said those words stood arguably in contrast to Rifkin’s assertion that Ukraine's President had an option to "surrender peacefully."

Have a background in and passion for math?

Frequently asked questions, why are you called the "russian" school of math.

The “Russian” comes from our approach - which is based on elite math schools in the former Soviet Union, adapted to the U.S. environment. According to Russian tradition - the study of mathematics is the pre-eminent tool of mental development. We teach math in a way that not only builds mathematical excellence, but also develops intellect and character.

Where does your curriculum come from?

We offer one continuous curriculum, from K-12. Our curriculum and methodology, perfected over 20 years by our team of gifted academics, is inspired by elite mathematical schools in the former Soviet Union, adapted for the American educational environment.

How big are your classes? What is the teacher to student ratio?

Our average class size is 12, and with three levels per grade we're able to ensure that each child is placed in a class that is appropriately challenging. Classrooms are an essential part of our methodology and curriculum as the environment enables students to verbalize and debate their ideas and exposes them to different ways of thinking.

How long are your classes? Can an elementary school child sit that long?

Our class-times vary depending on a child’s age. Starting anywhere from 1.5 hours for kindergarteners to 2-4 hours in high school. In the younger grades, we regularly mix activities and work with manipulatives to keep students engaged.

How much homework should I expect?

The goal of homework is to reinforce what was taught in class. Our teachers assign just enough to strengthen the skills developed in class. Homework is an excellent tool for you to gauge your child’s learning. It should take approximately half the length of your child’s lesson to complete. If the homework takes an unreasonably long or short amount of time, that may be a red flag indicating that your child is not in an appropriate level.

Who are your teachers?

All of our teachers have a background in mathematics or a related field and have a passion for the subject. They also go through extensive training to teach according to our specific methodology and curriculum.

What is the best age to join?

It takes many years to develop a deep mathematical foundation as well as the type of mindset we focus on building. With mathematics, as with a language or a sport, the earlier a child starts the better. Our students begin to reason with abstract concepts in elementary school, and by middle school they are not only familiar with essential elements of algebra but can easily apply them in problem solving.

What is your tuition?

Please submit the tuition request form above and we will automatically email you a pdf with our tuition costs by grade.

Is your program right for my child?

We have designed multiple levels for every grade specifically to be able to serve each child's development based on his or her knowledge and ability. We recommend scheduling a free evaluation, as these sessions enable us to get a sense of each child's needs and recommend a class that is best suited to him or her.

Will your program confuse my child in school?

The concepts that we cover are fundamental and we study them in depth. Children see concepts from a variety of different angles. This doesn’t lead to confusion but rather empowers students by deepening their understanding. Since our curriculum is generally ahead of public school, children will often first learn concepts at RSM. Once they master them, we find they can adapt to any school format.
