Do you still need to pass the Core Subjects EC-6 391 Math section? If so, you are in the right place!
Keep in mind you only have one hour and ten minutes to answer 40 math questions on the Core Subjects EC-6 391 Math section. Both accuracy and speed are important!
No formula chart or calculators are provided or allowed. You need to memorize basic formulas, like area and volume, and be able to add, subtract, multiply, and divide quickly.
The Math questions will test your knowledge of how to teach Math, as well as your ability to answer basic algebra, geometry, and probability questions.
If you need to practice speed and accuracy for basic operations, there are free apps to improve your speed on adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. For more advanced math skills, Khan Academy is excellent and free!
My digital course teaches you the content you need to know to pass, and has a full length sample test with realistic questions to check your comprehension.
Another free way to prepare is to take released STAAR tests for grades 3 through 8. Then, when you miss questions, look up more information about those topics and concepts.
I am also available for tutoring on Zoom. I have passed the Core Subjects EC-6 and have years of experience tutoring.
Be sure to also learn more about how to answer situational questions, since those will be on every section of the exam, including Math.
