Math Preparation for Standardized Tests
FPLA Math Placement Test
Following the free 30 minutes need assessment meeting, we administer KEY Math-3 Diagnostic Assessment test (KM-3 DA; Connolly, A. J. (2008). Key Math-3 Diagnostic Assessment. San Antonio, TX: Pearson, Reston, VA, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (2000). Principles and standards for school mathematics). The contents covered in the test meet the standards set by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). KM-3 DA tests students’ academic proficiency in three main content areas: Basic Concepts, Operations, and Applications. Results are given as percentiles and as grade level equivalents and pinpoints the areas of strengths and weaknesses. Results are further split into subcategories as described below.
- Basic Concepts: Numeration, Algebra, Geometry, Measurement.
- Operations: Mental Computation and Estimation, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Division.
- Applications: Foundations of Problem Solving and Applied Problem solving. This area tests students’ abilities to interpret word problems and identify missing elements, as well strategies, and operations required to solve the problem.
The results of KM-3 DA have been found to accurately correspond to students’ actual grade levels (Kim et al. 2015).
Math Topics we Cover
Elementary School Math
Infants innately have number sense (https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2013/10/babies-are-born-some-math-skills, #Starr A, Libertus M.E., Brannon E.M (2013). Number sense in infancy predicts mathematical abilities in childhood. PNAS USA, 10.1073/pnas.1302751110/-/DCSupplemental). We need to nurture and introduce them to more complex and formalized world of mathematics. At FPLA – we familiarize early learners to increasingly complex number concepts. As children advance to higher grades, we gradually present them with
We adapt our teaching method to the child’s learning style. In this process we use a variety of time-tested learning tools.
Middle School Math
As children transition from the elementary school to middle school, the complexity of math increases. From two- or three- digit numbers, we introduce the concepts of multi digit numbers, the magic of power (exponents), basic equations and more.
High School Math
- Algebra I
- Algebra II
- College Algebra
Algebra I covers solving equations and inequalities with an unknown variable. Our Algebra I tutors will help you understand how to solve variables and graphing, as well as factoring. Students should have completed Pre-Algebra to take this course.
Algebra II covers systems of equations with more than one variable, matrices, polynomials, and quadratic equations. Graphing in Algebra 2 extends beyond just linear equations and introduces parabolas, circles, and ellipses. Simple trigonometry is also typically introduced. Our tutors will offer the skills you need to solve complicated functions, remember the properties of parabolas, and perform operations with matrices. Students taking this course should have successfully completed Algebra I and Geometry.
Algebra II contains a lot of polynomial-based math, an advanced version of arithmetic. When you ace arithmetic, you will have the foundation to accomplish higher levels of algebra and the comprehension to expand on as you advance. This course contains cases of the most commonly performed functions of polynomial math.
To add or subtract in polynomial math, you must have like terms, meaning the variables and their powers must be the same. If you have like terms, you can add or subtract the numbers connected to the variable (coefficients). The variable itself is unaltered. Here is an example:
-3x + 4y +5x - 3y
(-3x + 5x)+(4y - 3y)
(-3 + 5)x+(4 - 3) y
2x + y
Geometry is the mathematics of shapes and angles. The fundamental concepts in Geometry are reasoning, proofs, and pattern recognition, known as Euclidean geometry. Our tutors can help you understand the properties of angles, as well as triangles and other polygons in order to solve problems. Students taking this course should have successfully completed Algebra I.
Plane geometry deals with 2-dimensional shapes like lines, circles, and triangles: all of which are shapes that can be drawn on a paper (which is a flat plane itself). Plane geometry also deals with lines, angles, surfaces, and some solid planes. Here are some basic angles, an important characteristic in essential geometry: Types Of Angles
Solid geometry is about 3-dimensional items like cubes, prisms, cylinders and other forms of shapes with a length, width, and height. High school geometry typically requires students to calculate the surface area and volume for three dimensional shapes.
Trigonometry is the branch of science focused on particular elements of angles and applying various calculations to gather information. There are six elements of an angle normally utilized in trigonometry: namely sine (sin), cosine (cos), digression (tan), cotangent (cot), secant (sec), and co secant (csc). These six trig functions connect the measurements of the triangle together, shown in the figure below.
For instance, the triangle contains a line An, and the angle of the side opposite of An and the side inverse to the right angle (the hypotenuse) is known as the sine of An, or sin A. Other trigonometry functions have comparable capabilities. Their capacities are often utilized in finding angles and distances from known or estimated edges in geometric figures.
Pre-Calculus: Algebra and Trigonometry. Pre-Calculus course prepares students by focusing on graphs of various functions and their properties. Focusing on the behavior of graphs is an important skillset that Pre-Calculus students will learn in preparation of more advanced topics such as Calculus. Trigonometry continues to build off what students learned in geometry and algebra courses.
Trigonometry is the study of triangles, their sides, their angles, and the functions used to determine their values. There are six elements of an edge normally utilized in trigonometry namely sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, secant, and cosecant. Each of these is used, along with properties of triangles to deduce any unknown value. FPLA certified tutors will help students understand the properties of various functions, trigonometric functions, and trigonometric identities.
This course is also often split into two semesters. Students taking these courses must have passed Algebra II or College Algebra.
College Algebra covers systems of equations, graphing, functions, matrices, and transformations. Graphing extends beyond simple linear equations to parabolas, hyperbolas, circles, and ellipses. Equations will have more than one variable.
Advanced Placement Program® (AP) and College Math
American Statistical Association (ASA) defines Statistics as "the art of gaining information and estimating, controlling, and conveying its vulnerability." Although not every statistician would concur with this definition, it is a basic description that is built upon with comprehensive steps.
Statistics is useful for finding trends in groups. Sampling from a larger population, and calculating statistics for those samples, can be used to infer the parameters of the larger group. Statistics also deals with probability, and distributions curves. Statistics is typically split into two semesters.
Analysts should have the capacity to think in at least three different ways: measurably, scientifically, and computationally. These paths of thought examine information differently than those gathered when working with numerical determinations, which also varies from composing computational code.

Calculus covers limits, derivatives, and integrals. The most basic operation in calculus is the limit. By using limits instantaneous rates of change, or derivatives, can be found. Calculus is used in engineering, physics, and business. This course requires familiarity with logarithmic, trigonometric, and various other functions, as well as familiarity with graph behavior. This course should be taken by students who have completed Pre-Calculus, Algebra and Trigonometry.
College Algebra: College Algebra covers systems of equations, graphing, functions, matrices, and transformations. Graphing extends beyond simple linear equations to parabolas, hyperbolas, circles, and ellipses. Equations will have more than one variable.
