# Question Block 0

Is my student showing an interest in numbers and counting?

Can my student focus for 5-10 minutes?

# Question Block 1

Unsure what we're asking? No problem. Select "Unsure" and we'll give you a couple of questions in a Quick Check guide to work through with your student so you can select "Yes" or "Not Yet".

Can my student read and write numerals from 0 to 9?

Does my student have one-to-one correspondence (e.g., the numeral 7 represents seven objects)?

Do I think my student is ready to start formal instruction?

Can my student explain how regrouping (a.k.a. "carrying" or "borrowing") works using the language of place value?

If they solved 147 + 385 using only a pencil and paper, would they be able to explain why they wrote a "1" above the "4"?

(i.e. "When there are more than 9 in the units or ones place, 10 of them have to be regrouped as 1 ten in the tens place")

Does my student understand multiplication in terms of repeated addition and in geometric (i.e. rectangular area) terms?

Would they be able to express 3 × 4 as 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 (repeated addition)?

Would they also be able to identify the multiplication problem this rectangle (3 × 4 geometric area) represents?

# Question Block 11

Can my student use discriminants and an understanding of the quadratic formula to predict the nature of the solutions to a quadratic equation?

Would they be able to predict whether the roots to 7*x*^{2} − 3*x* = 20 will be real or complex, rational or irrational, and equal or unequal without using a calculator or solving the equation?

# Question Block 12

Can my student identify parts of a quadratic function responsible for translation, direction, and amplitude?

Given *y* = −2*x*^{2} + 4*x* + 3, would they be able to predict that the graph will be a parabola, that the negative sign indicates that the vertex will be at the top of the curve, and that the curve will be steeper than the curve for *y* = −*x*^{2}?

Can my student identify parts of a trigonometric function responsible for amplitude, translation, and period?

Given *y* = 2sin(4*x*) + 3, would they be able to predict that the 2 indicates the amplitude, that the 3 indicates the vertical translation, and would they be able to use the 4 to find the period $\left(\frac{\mathrm{\pi}}{2}\right)$ ?

Can my student work with expressions which contain trigonometric functions, logarithms, radical expressions, irrational numbers, and/or complex numbers?

Would they be able to evaluate the expression $\left(-3\mathrm{i}\right)\left(5\sqrt{-81}\right)$ as equal to 135?

Would they also be able to rewrite the expression log_{x}36 = 2 as *x*^{2} = 36?
