Class experience

US Grade 6
The goal of the initial class for NEW students, Week 1, is to introduce and learn the format and interactive program which will be used for this 2 week course.  (For returning students, we will jump right into the first topics listed on the syllabus, Week 1.)  New students will interact, be able to ask questions and gain experience using my interactive program.  I will introduce all aspects of my one-hour-per-week class period; fact fluency, computational fluency and the specific targeted skills for this particular class, and then explain how students can use my interactive math program to practice what they learn between scheduled classes. This will only take a few minutes, and then, we will dive into the concepts to be taught for Week 1 (see syllabus above). The following week is detailed in "Class Experience."  Subsequent courses, usually 4 to 11 weeks in length, are listed (or will be soon) and cover the other strands of mathematics:  Ratios and Proportions, The Number System, Expressions and Equations, Geometry and Statistics and Probability.  This course can stand alone, provide extra support or be a part of sequential learning, depending on the need or desire. Conceptualization of math topics is always key, producing an outcome of understanding, efficiency and accuracy.  This course will primarily focus on geometric concepts necessary for 6th graders. See summary above for samples of concepts covered.
Homework Offered
Homework will be assigned weekly and I will monitor students between classes, and even communicate with them through the program itself while they are working when scheduled. I can designate weekly class check-ins if needed. Generally speaking, homework that is assigned on a Monday, for example, would not be due until the following Monday. However, this can be flexible when circumstances require it. Assignments will be differentiated, and there are always ways to remediate, practice grade level concepts, or move ahead. THIS HOMEWORK IS NECESSARY to move learning forward.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
The student will be assessed by the completion of their assigned online work. Grading is instantaneous and visible by the teacher, as well as by the parents and students. Missed problems will be explained instantaneously via the program. I can also monitor student work remotely as they work and offer suggestions in real time. This aspect does not require video conferencing. It is done through my digital math platform, a simply awesome feature. That time would be arranged via email and a determined time to watch the student work could be established. There will be no waiting from class to class to see progress. Misconceptions that may result will provide teacher/student dialog in the next class. Again, the classwork will be differentiated. Students who need more time on a concept will receive it. Those who need challenge can move ahead if desired. I will monitor all aspects of success and struggle and parents will be able to see their student's progress as well. Students will be required to strive for an 80% on each learning target that has been taught and then assigned. This demonstrates a baseline of mastery of the concept for the teacher. If desired, students can move beyond 80% as the questions often become more rigorous. A diagnostic aspect of my program will allow me to see areas of strength and weakness and communicate with parents regarding specific points of need or challenge.
Grades Offered
Paper and pencil is required, of course, and a device to access a student's online subscription (math homework) is needed.  Subscriptions for IXL will be PROVIDED BY ME and included when students enroll with no cost to parents. Students will have access to their IXL subscriptions as long as they are enrolled in my classes that are offered and are actively participating in them.  There are NO books, worksheets, etc. needed; no paperwork to be kept.  Simple, Neat and Mobile!  Take your class with you anywhere you want. There will be a cap size of 6 students per class creating an ideal learning environment. There are continuous, sequential math courses offered by Math You Can Do entitled, "A Creative, Interactive Math Journey...Together, We Can Do This!". Again, these courses can easily provide all of the mathematical training needed for families who homeschool, as well as provide help and support in traditional settings.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Parents, www.ixl.com is used to practice concepts after my weekly instruction has concluded.  This is where students will do their homework. A free subscription is included with enrollment, as long as students are enrolled in my courses that require its usage. Not all of my published courses require it, only private tutoring and my multi-week courses need it.

Hi, there! My name is Mr. Thurman and I enjoy teaching math. And, at “Math You Can Do” we’re always cooking up some good “recipes” for a tasty math experience! I was a public and private school educator for 36 years, and have experience teaching...
