Hi Grade 7 Parents,

Welcome to the Senior Phase! Grade 7 is a pivotal year for your child’s educational journey, especially in mathematics.
At GradeUp, we’ve designed a self-learning program that provides the tools your child needs to thrive in this challenging subject.

Program Highlights:

Tutorial Videos: Our program kicks off with detailed tutorial videos, including both conceptual overviews and step-by-step examples. These are designed to ensure learners grasp the “how-to” of each topic thoroughly.

Extensive Practice: With over 4,000 practice questions tailored for Grade 7, our program covers various question types to boost all necessary skills and deepen mathematical understanding.

Exam Preparation: Practice exams for Terms 2 and 4, incorporating both provincial past papers and our custom assessments. Help students familiarize with the format, build confidence, and reduce test anxiety.

Video Memos: Unlike traditional text-based solutions, our video memos provide clear, step-by-step explanations for each question. This innovative method supports better understanding and leads to remarkable learning outcomes.

This program is perfect for homeschoolers, students seeking extra help, or any family needing a flexible and comprehensive math resource.
