#### Math Level K

Students acquire the basic properties of functions through a thorough study of quadratic functions. Level K introduces higher degree, fractional, irrational and exponential functions, and their corresponding graphs. The skills developed here will ease students into the calculus exercises of Level L.

● Level K Goals:

Functions

Graphs and Equations of Quadratic Functions

Maxima and Minima of Quadratic Functions

Quadratic Functions, Equations, and Inequalities

Quadratic Functions, Solutions of Quadratic Equations

Higher Degree Functions, Equations, and Inequalities

Graphs of Fractional Functions

Fractional Equations and Inequalities

Graphs of Irrational Functions

Irrational Equations and Inequalities

Exponential Functions and Graphs

Exponential Equations 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:

8-16 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.
