If you find Math challenging, allow me to assist in constructing a strong foundation by simplifying and breaking down key concepts.

Elementary School Math (Grades K - 5)


For students in grades K-5, our program comprehensively addresses fundamental mathematical topics, establishing a robust foundation for the mastery of advanced concepts in subsequent grades. Here is a breakdown for key topics that are covered:

  • Understanding numbers and counting sequences.
  • Counting objects and understanding one-to-one correspondence.
  • Addition and subtraction, including basic facts and strategies.
  •  Introduction to multiplication and division concepts.
  •  Solving word problems and understanding mathematical symbols.
  • Place value concepts, including understanding ones, tens, hundreds, etc.
  •  Working with multi-digit numbers.
  •  Addition and subtraction with regrouping.
  • Introduction to fractions and understanding the concept of a whole and parts.
  • Understanding units of measurement (length, weight, capacity, time, etc.).
  • Collecting and interpreting data.
  • Reading and interpreting graphs and charts.
  • Recognizing and understanding two-dimensional shapes (ex: squares, rectangles, triangles).
  • Introduction to three-dimensional shapes (ex:  cubes, spheres).
  • Understanding concepts like symmetry and congruence.
  • Developing problem-solving skills.
  • Reasoning and justifying solutions.
  • Communicating mathematically.
  • Using mathematical tools, models, and representations.
  • Recognizing and creating patterns.
  •  Understanding relationships between numbers and shapes.
  • Telling time on both analog and digital clocks.
  • Identifying and counting money (coins and bills).
  • Introduction to probability and chance.
  • Collecting and analyzing data to make predictions.

These concepts are progressively introduced and elaborated upon across various grade levels, gaining complexity and depth as students advance from kindergarten through fifth grade. They form the foundational bedrock of mathematical understanding expected during the kindergarten years.

Middle School

In the realm of grades 6-8 mathematics, students advance beyond foundational concepts acquired in earlier grades to delve into more sophisticated topics. The principal subjects covered in middle school mathematics (grades 6-8) are: 

Grade 6

  • Understanding and working with ratios, rates, and percentages.
  • Solving problems involving ratios and proportions.
  • Evaluating expressions with variables.
  •  Solving simple one-variable equations and inequalities.
  • Understanding and working with area, surface area, and volume of geometric figures.
  •  Investigating angles, triangles, and polygons.
  • Introducing the concept of the coordinate plane.
  • Organizing, interpreting, and displaying data.
  • Introducing basic probability concepts.

Grade 7

  • Scaling and finding equivalent ratios.
  •  Solving real-world problems using ratios and proportions.
  • Working with expressions involving rational numbers.
  • Solving multi-step equations and inequalities.
  • Investigating properties of two-dimensional figures.
  • Solving problems related to angles and circles.
  • Understanding geometric transformations.
  • Investigating random sampling and variability.
  •  Analyzing and interpreting data distributions.

Grade 8

  • Extending understanding of the number system to include rational and irrational numbers.
  • Working with exponents and square roots.
  • Analyzing and solving linear equations and systems of equations.
  •  Understanding functions and the concept of slope.
  •  Investigating transformations and congruence.
  • Understanding the Pythagorean Theorem.
  • Exploring the concept of volume.
  • Constructing and interpreting scatterplots.
  • Understanding concepts related to probability.

These subjects establish a robust mathematical foundation for students, equipping them with the necessary skills to tackle more advanced concepts in high school. It’s worth noting that the specific curriculum and the sequence in which these topics are presented may vary, adhering to regional and school district standards.

Middle School Math (Grades 6 - 8)

High School Math
(Grades 9-12)

High School

In grades 9-12 mathematics, students engage with a diverse array of advanced mathematical concepts that expand upon foundational knowledge acquired in preceding grades. The specific topics covered vary according to course selection and the level of mathematics undertaken. The following outlines some key subjects addressed in high school mathematics:

  • Solving and graphing linear equations and inequalities.
  • Working with quadratic equations.
  • Polynomials and factoring.
  • Rational expressions and equations.
  • Radical and exponential expressions.
  • Systems of linear equations and inequalities.
  • Advanced study of geometric concepts, proofs, and constructions.
  • Trigonometry, including sine, cosine, and tangent functions.
  • Coordinate geometry.
  • Area and volume of geometric shapes.
  • Rational functions and rational expressions.
  • Exponential and logarithmic functions.
  • Conic sections (circles, ellipses, hyperbolas, and parabolas).
  • Complex numbers.
  • Sequences and series.
  • Matrices and determinants.
  • Probability and statistics.
  • Advanced trigonometry, including trigonometric identities and functions.
  • Analyzing conic sections (circles, ellipses, hyperbolas, and parabolas).
  • Exponential and logarithmic functions in greater depth.
  • Limits and continuity.
  • Introduction to calculus concepts (optional).
  • Differentiation and integration.
  • Limits and continuity.
  • Applications of calculus in physics, engineering, and other fields.
  • Advanced statistical concepts, hypothesis testing, and inferential statistics.
  • Probability distributions and combinatorics.
  • Regression analysis.
  • 1. Depending on the curriculum and course offerings, students may delve into more specialized areas of mathematics, such as linear algebra, discrete mathematics, number theory, mathematical modeling, or advanced calculus topics.

It’s important to note that the specific topics studied in grades 9-12 can vary depending on the level of the course (ex: standard, honors, AP), regional curriculum standards, and individual student interests and course choices. High school mathematics provides students with a solid mathematical foundation and prepares them for college or careers in STEM fields.
