Description: An after-school math enrichment program "based on the best practices of advanced math schools in Russia and Europe and adapted to the US educational environment." Co-founded in 1997 by Inessa Rifkin and Irina Khavinson — who recall that, in the former Soviet republic, "every mathematical formula and rule had to be proven" — the Russian School of Mathematics (RSM) focuses "on understanding, not memorization." RSM programs include summer school, tutoring, and overnight camps in Massachusetts, California, Washington, Kentucky, Illinois, and Connecticut. Blog posts have included "The Top 3 Reasons why Math Tutoring is a Mistake," "2013 PISA Report: Wake-Up Call on US Math Education," and "On Grade Inflation, Harvard Gets an F."
