Grade 9 and 10 math is a large leap from elementary school math, especially for those who scored 75% or lower. Many new math concepts are introduced, such as linear equations, quadratics and geometry.
Common challenges in Grade 9 and 10 math include thinking problems and word problems. Students need to strengthen their foundational skills to succeed in Grade 9 and 10, especially if they have gaps in their Grade 8 and 9 learning. Such gaps include integers, fractions, and linear equations. Students must work diligently in these areas in order to proceed on to Grade 11 math successfully.
The major concern for math is that it is cumulative. Each math grade level is a building block to the next, and without a strong knowledge of previous math concepts, students will struggle. For example, math tests often check for understanding of previous math concepts in most steps of the questions asked.
At QEA, we focus on building the student’s math foundations for their long term success. Since QEA is an inspected school under the Ministry of Education, we have in-depth knowledge of the math curriculum and how each math building block leads to the next. Through easy-to-understand lessons and step-by-step explanations, most of our students progress well in math and develop a passion for it.
