#### Math Level J

Concepts learned through Level I are expanded and reinforced in Level J. Students are introduced to advanced factoring methods, complex numbers, the discriminant, and the Factor and Remainder theorems. At the end of Level J, students conduct proofs of algebraic equalities and inequalities.

● Level J Goals:

Expansion of Polynomial Products

Factorization

Fractional Expressions

Irrational Numbers

Quadratic Equations

Quadratic Equations and Complex Numbers

Discriminate

Root-Coefficient Relationship

Simultaneous Equations

Dividing Polynomials

Remainder Theorem

Factor Theorem

Proof of Identities and Equalities

Proof of Equalities and Inequalities

● Good Work Skills in this level include:

Reading directions and examples carefully

Writing all example problems in their Kumon notebook

Showing ALL STEPS

Studying incorrect answers and erase only the part that is incorrect, then correct it

● Time Goal:

6-10 minutes per page

The study time goal is approximately 30 minutes per day.

Your Instructor will continually adjust the number of pages your child is studying to adhere to this goal

● Solution Manuals:

Solution Manuals are available for check out by students

Solution Manuals show the student step by step how to do Kumon problems

If the student gets stuck, they may study the Solution Manual to learn how to do the steps correctly

Once they have studied the steps, they should close the manual and then attempt the problem set

They should not copy out of the Solution Manual

● Grading Reminders:

Students must be able to learn from their mistakes daily

Take the time to grade and let them find and correct their own errors independently

Students can use what they have learned and apply it to the next day’s assignment allowing them to move smoothly and independently through the assignments.
