Math Tutoring Class (1st-8th Grade)
In this semi-private math class, our certified teacher with over ten years of experience at SpiderSmart focuses on a curriculum specific to the student's individual needs. This course is designed to help students emphasizes reviewing past material, learning new concepts, and preparing for tests and quizzes. Additionally, SpiderSmart has been increasingly successful in cultivating students who excel in major tests including the CBE test and the GT test.
The course will follow the Texas Algebra I TEKS blueprint. Students will study linear, quadratic, and exponential functions along with their graphs, transformations, and how to solve their related equations and inequalities. In addition, students will learn to set-up and solve 2 x 2 systems of linear equations using various methods and apply them to real-world problems. Other topics along the way include polynomial expressions, radical expressions, laws of exponents, and arithmetic/geometric sequences. This course will help students get ready for the CBE test.
The course will follow the Texas state Geometry blueprint. Within this course, students will begin to focus on more precise terminology, symbolic representations, and the development of proofs. Students will explore concepts covering coordinate and transformational geometry; logical argument and constructions; proof and congruence; similarity, proof, and trigonometry; two- and three-dimensional figures; circles; and probability.
The course is designed for students preparing for State and National MATHCOUNTS and AMC8 competition. The course will cover Number Theory, Algebra, Word problem, Sequences, Counting, Probability, Geometry, Logic and imagination, and countdown.
