California High School Exit Exam

At Math Masters we have a complete curriculum detailing the entire Math Exit Exam. There are six areas of knowledge that all students are tested on:

- Number Sense
- Statistics, Data Analysis & Probability
- Algebra & Functions
- Measurement & Geometry
- Mathematical Reasoning
- Algebra

### What We Will Cover in Your Exit Exam Program:

All exit exam students take a math diagnostic test (at no cost to parents) once they are enrolled. The diagnostic will show strengths and weakness in the students’ math foundation. Then students will be tutored on the areas that need the most work. This will help them gain the most points on the test.

Math Masters incorporates the Accelerated Math California Exit Exam Library and actual test questions taken from prior versions of the test in order to fully prepare your student.

The following is an index of the 227 Math Objectives that Math Masters will use to provide worksheets and instruction for all exit exam preparation (Students only need to work on areas of weakness indicated by the diagnostic test):

Exit Exam Students are tutored by professional teachers skilled in problem solving. They meet once per week for 90 minutes but if necessary can come for extra sessions with second and third sessions per week being provided at a discounted price. Students enroll for a minimum of 4 sessions and work in groups of 3.
