Best Remedial Math Prep Courses
If you are rusty in math or need a pick-me-up in critical math areas tested in GMAT, GRE, SAT, ACT, and Pre-Med examinations, you should register in MLIC Remedial Math prep course and stop being rusty in math..
MLIC Remedial Math Prep
The standardized tests such as the GMAT, GRE, SAT and ACT include a quantitative assessment section that tests your ability to engage in logical reasoning, using math concepts and basics that were learned during the final years of high school education. Some employers administer math-competency tests for employment purposes, and some pre-med programs emphasize math proficiency as well. So, in order to do well in these various math-proficiency tests, you need to develop strong conceptual and procedural grasp in the following areas:
- Properties of Numbers: Real numbers; Rational and irrational numbers, prime integers, number line, absolute value, factoring including prime-factoring, multiples, remainders;
- Ratios and Proportions: Relationship between and among values in a group, proportions and probability, conditional probability; percentages, percent change;
- Algebra: Basic algebra (rules of commutation, distribution, association); solving simultaneous equations; factoring algebraic expressions including Quadratic expressions; functions and crazy-symbol representation; exponents; inequalities; radicals;
- Statistics: Exclusive and independent Sets; Mean, Median, Mode, Standard Deviation; Weighted Averages;
- Counting Methods: Permutation and Combination; Conditional probability involving permutations
- Geometry: Straight line, polygons (triangles, rectangles, circles, trapezoids, irregular polygons); 3-D objects (rectangular prism, cubes, cylinder, cone); Areas, perimeter, and volume problems; Coordinate Geometry (slope, intercepts);
- Logical Decision-making: Quantitative reasoning; testing for consistency by actively attempting to create inconsistency.
MLIC Remedial Math prep course is designed to bring you up to speed in these critical but basis math assessment areas so that you can ace the standardized tests such as GMAT, GRE, SAT, ACT, and pre-med tests. Who knows, your employment chances are also dependent on your developing math proficiency in these critical areas.
Who will benefit?
If you were a C or B student in high school level mathematics, or if you did not take math in Grades 11 and 12, and/or are rusty now in math basics tested on the GMAT, GRE, SAT, ACT, and Pre-med exams, you will benefit from our remedial math preparation course.
If you did take high school level math courses but feel that your fundamentals are shaky, you should choose MLIC remedial math prep course.
All standardized tests for admission to undergraduate and graduate programs feature quantitative assessment section that tests your firm understanding of concepts, rules, and procedures in those conceptual areas. A good conceptual understanding is an essential requirement for a good score on the standardized tests such as GMAT, GRE, and SAT/ACT, and the objective of the MLIC Remedial Math Course is to provide and reinforce the conceptual framework for successfully dealing with the quantitative sections on these various exams.
All Business Schools will require a GMAT MATH scaled score of at least 42 out of 52, and other Graduate degree programs a GRE quantitative Score of at least 160 out of 170. The SAT test-takers should strive to get a score of at least 700 out of 800 in order to be actively considered for admission to leading undergraduate institutions and for scholarships. The objective of MLIC Remedial-Math prep course is to meet and exceed this threshold requirement for Quantitative (Math) scores on the GMAT, SAT/ACT, and GRE tests.
METHOD OF COACHING: MLIC prep courses rely on Socratic method of learning in which the instructor will explain to the the trainees concepts and procedures in all the critical areas of math reasoning, and then the trainees are required to demonstrate their understanding of concepts/procedures, and their competencies by being 'asked' to show the instructor and the rest of the group that they have acquired the required competencies.
- Learn the relevant concepts and procedures.
- Demonstrate your understanding as learned.
- Practice and Improve.
- Acquire math proficiency under professional guidance.
