If your child is a fourth- or fifth-grader preparing to attend an independent or a magnet school next year, you probably already know that he will be required to take the Middle Level Independent School Entrance Examination. This test is typically used to determine admissions, scholarship qualifications, and proper course placement for your child. The Middle Level ISEE includes content regarding verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, reading comprehension, and proficiency in mathematics. The quantitative reasoning portion of the ISEE contains 37 questions to be completed in only 35 minutes, so adequate preparation is the key to your child’s success. Learn by Concept provides a free interactive online Middle Level Quantitative ISEE study guide to help with test preparation. It’s set up like an interactive syllabus, enabling your child to quickly assess their strengths and weaknesses. This helps your child to focus on the areas in which they need improvement.
When using Learn by Concept to review for the Middle Level ISEE Quantitative section, your child has the ability to choose to practice algebraic concepts, geometry, numbers and operations, square roots, and more. Inside each of these subjects are two to three more layers of subtopics from which to choose. For instance, within the numbers and operations topic, your child could choose the subtopic regarding fractions, and within the subtopic regarding fractions, your child could choose to review how to add, subtract, multiply, or divide fractions, or how to find the decimal equivalent of fractions.
Learn by Concept’s Middle Level ISEE Quantitative practice questions are presented in a multiple-choice format that simulates the actual exam. Below the possible solutions, your child will find the correct answer, accompanied by a detailed explanation. Along with the explanation, your child will find links to relevant formulas and concepts. The multiple-choice answers are randomly shuffled each time your child refreshes the page. This reassignment strategy reinforces your child’s review of the content by avoiding useless memorization and association with the correct answer based on the order in which the choices are presented.
The variety of additional Learning Tools available to help your child in their Middle Level ISEE Quantitative review include online Flashcards, a Question of the Day, and Practice Tests. Online Flashcards assist in studying for the quantitative reasoning portion of the Middle Level ISEE by strengthening memorization skills and allowing your student to use their study time wisely. The Question of the Day presents your child with a randomly selected question each day to keep the priority of studying for the ISEE at the top of their daily priorities.
