Description

Entering 8th grade, approximately half of students exhibit difficulty translating math skills to real world problems, manifested in story problems, the application of scale drawings to real-world measurements, and the use of percentages in real-world discount and tax scenarios. Because the true aim of math education is to help students leverage math in everyday life, these skills are critical, and this class will provide students with that foundation to excel in applied math situations this school year and beyond.

Powered by the Learning Lab

  • The Varsity Tutors Learning Lab leverages artificial intelligence to serve adaptive diagnostic assessments and create customized learning plans for each student. With tens of thousands of student responses, the Learning Lab also offers deep insights into the skills that are most critical to success in future grades, and into the skills that most often hold students back from that success. The Most Misunderstood series uses that data to ensure that learners solidify the skills most likely to otherwise stand in their way.
