Common Math challenges and QE Approaches

In high school, next to English is math in order of importance. Essentially, achieving a good math grade is a prerequisite to get accepted to study most university programs today. Currently, about 85% of all university programs require good math grades.

Math is a cumulative subject. Hence, each grade level gradually builds into the next one, and serves as a building block to the next grade. When a student lacks good understanding of the concepts in the preceding grades, he or she will likely struggle. For instance, most math tests check for understanding of previous math concepts in solution steps.

QEA focuses on building students’ foundations in fundamental math concepts so they don't have issues in the future. QEA is accredited and regulated by the Ministry of Education. Expectedly, we have in-depth knowledge of math curriculum for all high school grades. Additionally, we understand how each math building block leads to the next. We use easy-to-understand lessons and step-by-step explanations in teaching these concepts, thereby helping our students progress well in math. Some even develop a passion for it!

 

Common challenges that most students from Markham face in math:

 

1. Weak foundational skills in math.

We often advise that students should begin learning math and building foundational skills in Grade 7 or 8. This is where they`re introduced to integers foundational concepts, such as fractions.In high school, they`ll learn graphing, algebra, and more complex manipulations. These are eseni bacus without the, the students will have a hard time progressing in math study. When we notice foundation gaps, we patch them up with lessons and practice questions to strengthen the students` understanding.

2. Word problems

This is common in most math courses, and is a major challenge for lots of students. Many students are unable to translate word problems into actual equations and variables. So we use different word problem scenarios under each topic to explain how to identify the given variables, the unknown(s), and place them in an equation.

3. Complex math concepts are confusing

Grade 10 maths often marks the beginning of complicated maths for most students. This level of maths has many complex parts. But knowing which equation and concept to use is a major step towards solving most questions.

At Queen Elizabeth Academy, we have a particular strategy that we use to make the process of learning math easier for our students. Our tutors use the “big picture” strategy. This involves showing them why each part exists and how all the parts are connected to each other, rather than going straight into the technical details. Once a student understands this “big picture”, solving word problems becomes very easy.

The QEA math tutoring program is one-on-one, private tutoring.

We build the student’s understanding of math concepts as well as their foundations through our coaching and the extra practice we provide.

How to get the most out of QE Math Tutoring Markham

Math tutoring Markham

1. Read ahead

It is important for you to know what you don’t know. This involves reading ahead before the tutoring session. Our Math tutors in Markham will explain to you the concepts during our lessons and attempt to find out your gaps. However, it will be very effective if you know your gaps ahead of time. All our top students do that, they read ahead, circle on the parts they don’t understand, and seek clarifications right away.

Inquiry for Math Tutoring Markham: (905) 257 9009

2. Make your own study notes

After the sessions in our Math tutoring in Markham, we advise you to write your own notes. To start off, you can screenshot your lessons our math tutors in Markham write on screen, when it’s conducted online. You can then organize it. From our lessons, read over the textbook and try out the practice questions. You can then summarize in your own words, with the example questions you attempted. Why not just rely on QE math tutor’s notes? Yes you can do this, but you can understand much better if you summarize them in your own words, and you can apply better on tests.

3.How to manage your time better with QE Math Tutors in Markham?

Time management is a key to your success, especially when you enter senior high school grades. The key to time management is to dedicate a time that you can put 100% of your efforts in your studies. We recommend you to use a calendar, so you can visualize your plan.

All our top students do this. You can pencil down a dedicated time, say Mon to Fri 5-6pm, for math, or other subjects. During this time, you take out all the distractions - turn off your phone, wifi, and focus solely on your work. You want to dedicate 100% of your effort to your work. QE Math tutors in Markham will provide you with homework, plus you get the ones from your school. Therefore, you time in making your own study notes and practice through the homework is important.

If I am doing poorly, how can I use the help from QE Math tutoring in Markham?

If you aren’t performing well in the subject, chances are you have foundation gaps. The first step is really to address your foundation gaps. That’s also one of the focus on QE Math tutors in Markham. Once we discover your gaps during the tutoring session, we will re-teach you that particular component. Take an example, a lot of grade 11 and 12 students struggle with factoring, that’s one of the common foundation gaps. We will then re-teach it. Now, once you understand how to perform it, you need to practice at least 10-15 questions, so it sinks with you.

The next step is to review the lessons after the tutoring session. The best way is to write your own study notes. Then you need to practice homework problems. If you do all these 3 things, you will see measurable improvements from QE Math tutoring in Markham.

MCR3U Functions
Course Overview

MCR3U / Functions is one of the most important Math courses in grade 11 for university admission

MCR3U Functions - Course Description

This course introduces the mathematical concept of the function by extending students’ experiences with linear and quadratic relations. Students will investigate properties of discrete and continuous functions, including trigonometric and exponential functions; represent functions numerically, algebraically, and graphically; solve problems involving applications of functions; investigate inverse functions; and develop facility in determining equivalent algebraic expressions. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems.

Inquiry for Math Tutoring Markham: (905) 257 9009

What is taking MCR3U Functions like?

In preparing for Grade 12 Mathematics, students must have a solid grasp of Grade 11 Mathematics. Although, what we see is that students at this stage are often faced with the difficult choice of choosing between the Mixed level course and the Academic level course. From experience, we advise students to stick with the Grade 11 Academic Math, as it is a more flexible option. However, the challenge with most students is that the course requires a bit more work. But it also creates multiple opportunities for university programs to pick from, typically ranging from engineering to business courses. So, unless a student is absolutely sure of the path he/she wishes to take after high school, they should stick with a flexible option.

Grade 11 Math has several difficult units, including exponents, transformation, trigonometry graphing, and trigonometry identities. This is also the first time they'll encounter proofs. The simpler units include Quadratics, series, and sequences, which are mostly a review of grade 10 topics.

Inquiry for Math Tutoring Markham: (905) 257 9009

Tips to succeed in MCR3U Functions

It's advisable to build strong foundational skills in grade 10 before taking this course. Factoring (especially trinomials), fractions (grade 8-9 level), Linear systems, and quadratics are the critical skills at this stage. Additionally, students will need a good understanding of domain and range, x and y intercepts, and asymptotes to excel in this course. It is always easier to keep pace with all lessons and course work in this course once the student has mastered the foundational skills.

The thing about grade 11 questions is that they involve multiple steps. To ensure an easy flow, you must understand the logic and concept behind each step you take, and then pinpoint why you`re taking those steps. In other words, “what am I trying to solve?” Work through the steps again after you have done this. This is essentially how you demystify mathematical problems.

MHF4U Advanced Functions Course Overview

MHF4U / Advanced Functions is one of the most important Math courses in grade 12 for university admission

MHF4U Advanced Functions - Course Description

MHF4U / Advanced Functions extends students’ experience with functions. Students will investigate the properties of polynomial, rational, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions; develop techniques for combining functions; broaden their understanding of rates of change; and develop facility in applying these concepts and skills. Students will also refine their use of the mathematical processes necessary for success in senior mathematics.

MHF4U is intended both for students taking the Calculus and Vectors course as a prerequisite for a university program and for those wishing to consolidate their understanding of mathematics before proceeding to any one of a variety of university programs.

Inquiry for Math Tutoring Markham: (905) 257 9009

What is taking MHF4U Advanced Functions like?

MHF4U is a very important course for many students because most university programs require this course as a pre-requisite. The skills learned in the Grade 11 course are built upon in this course, including factoring, graphing, trigonometry and exponents.

Students will likely have varying levels of proficiency when taking this course, as some units, such as polynomial functions, are quite simple, while others, such as trigonometry and proofs. Some students have thus described it as a roller coaster ride of a course, with all the thrills (and challenges) that that entails.
