Algebra 1, Full Curriculum, Ongoing Class, Three Days per Week, With a Licensed Math Teacher
This rigorous, ongoing course will cover the full year of Common Core Algebra 1.
US Grade 6 - 9
Beginner - Advanced Level
This ongoing course will cover all of Common Core Algebra. Students completing the entire course will be ready to move onto Geometry and Algebra 2. This is a teacher lead, interactive class; I will present the lesson and we will practice together. My goal is to build a classroom community where students are comfortable asking questions and commenting as I believe this drives the learning for the whole cohort. The topics covered and intended pace, Please understand that different cohorts of...

I am a licensed mathematics teacher and have fourteen years of classroom experience teaching Pre-Algebra, Algebra and Geometry. My students have consistently experienced exceptional growth in comparison to local, state and national metrics.
Homework OfferedHomework with an answer key will be provided with each lesson; it is optional be strongly recommended. I will be available prior to class to answer any questions on homework.
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedStudents will be formatively assessed during each lesson with observation and targeted questioning. Summative assessments and grades will be available upon request.
0The students should be ready for each class with: Formatted notes printed (provided) Pencil and eraser calculator Whiteboard with a coordinate plane for extra practice when time allows
