Grades 7-9 Mathematics Preparation Course

Give your child a head start and send them into the new school year with more confidence!

The intensive, back to school crash course is designed for all types of students, including those looking to fill-in some gaps, get a head start on next year, or simply want to maintain their hard-earned skills. This course will send students back to school with more confidence. Your child will be properly prepared to take on the challenges of the year ahead.

These 21 hour in-classroom sessions familiarize students with Grade 8 material ahead of time, giving them a head start in the new school year.

At this time of year, it can sometimes be hard to tell who’s more excited about returning to school, students or their parents.

The excitement for kids about new friends, teachers, and experiences can be overshadowed by anxiety and stress, particularly if they’re moving into high school. The sheer size of a high school building can be overwhelming to new students. In high school, teachers tend to stay in one place while the students rotate through their classrooms. This can be difficult for students who are used to having a homeroom teacher for the majority of their subjects.

Parents and their children can take some steps to make the transition easier. We have designed this High School Preparation Course with this in mind.

  • Day #1: Perfect square, square roots, percentage, ratios and rates
  • Math Lessons Are Prepared in Accordance with BC Math Curriculum
  • Day #2: Graphing and Analysis of two-variable linear relations and expressions
  • Day #3: Two- step equations
  • Day #4: Geometry
  • Day #5: Application and Word Problems
