Calculus includes two different sections, one is derivative, or rather extends from work in Advanced Functions, while the other is Vectors Calculus, which is completely new. Vector Calculus bears some resemblance to Physics in terms of problem solving. The Calculus derivative section will branch out from the work done in Advanced Functions and will include algebra, graphing, trigonometry and logarithms. The vector component is entirely new, involving 3D equation of lines and planes. The problem solving aspects of Vectors Calculus are similar to physics, and many students find this component of the course particularly difficult.
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.
