Math doesn't have to be difficult. With Knowledge Edge Programs, it won't be.
Knowledge Edge offers proven tutoring programs in math ranging from basic math help to pre-algebra and algebra help. In each of these tutoring programs, the lessons are administered using a variety of proven teaching methods. These include paper-and-pencil activities as well as the incorporation of manipulatives to provide hands-on activity to aid in learning abstract concepts. Each of our math programs provides children with the math help they need to succeed.
Basic Math Program
The Basic Math Program helps students learn basic math skills in three general categories: Basic Math Facts, Computation, and Concepts & Applications. The Basic Math Program encourages students to communicate in mathematical terms in all areas of instruction. Mastering these skills provides students with the math help they need for advancement to higher-level math classes.
Basic Math Facts - Students learn and master basic single-digit operations in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Our tutors provide the math help your child needs to develop accuracy and speed, which translates into confidence and success as he or she progresses. These basic math skills provide the foundation for math comprehension that will lead to success as the student moves on to more complex math operations.
Computation - Core computation skills are learned in the areas of whole number operations, fractions, decimals, and at some levels, integers, percentages, and pre-algebraic expressions. With math help in these areas, your child is prepared to advance to the next levels quickly and successfully.
Concepts & Applications - This element of the program deals with concept formation, reasoning, and problem solving. The specific math skills areas learned include: numeration, fraction concepts, decimal concepts, estimating, basic measurement concepts, geometry measurement concepts, problem solving, exponents, graphics, probability and statistics, and ratios
Pre-Algebra Math Program
Once students gain the confidence and mastery of math skills in the Basic Math Program, they are ready to embark onto new challenges in our Pre-Algebra Program. This program bridges the gap from basic math help to algebra by offering students algebra readiness skills. Students will learn how to read, write, and understand the unique language of mathematics so they will be prepared for every type of problem-solving and assessment situation. The Pre-Algebra Program affords students the opportunity to spend the necessary time on these important skill areas to ensure success in algebra.
Some of the pre-algebra skills taught in this program include: integers, equations, factors and fractions, rational numbers, ratios, percent and proportion, equations and inequalities, functions and graphing, right triangles, two-dimensional figures, three-dimensional figures, statistics and probability, polynomials and nonlinear functions, variables, and exponents and powers.
Algebra Math Program
We offer an extensive Algebra Program which teaches the math skills and concepts students need to succeed in high school and beyond. Once students have completed and mastered basic math skills and have a solid understanding of pre-algebra concepts, they can move on to algebra help.
Students will learn, practice, and master the computational algebra skills necessary for successfully applying logical thinking and practicality in school-related algebra courses. The algebra skills and strategies taught in the Algebra Program include: the language of algebra, real numbers, linear equations, linear inequalities, polynomials, factoring, quadratic functions, exponential functions, rational equations, radical expressions, statistics, and probability. Our tutors provide the algebra help needed for mastery of advanced math skills.
Geometry Math Program
Our Geometry program is delivered so that each student focuses only the specific areas needed for improvement. Practical excercises and tests ensure that students move on to new topics only when they've mastered the previous one. The geometry skills and strategies taught in the Geometry Program include: lines & angles, reasoning & proof, triangles, quadrilaterals, circles, area and volume to name a few. Our tutors are able to take the time to explain geometry skills in different ways to enrich the students understanding and success.
