###### Beginner - Intermediate Level

Experience: I have a BS in Mathematics and a Masters in Education. I have taught Basic Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra( Regular and Honors), Geometry(Regular and Honors) and Pre-Calculus. Algebra1: This is an ongoing Algebra 1 class that will meet twice a week and involves student interacting with the teacher and complete one or two weekly assignments/assessments. Since this is an ongoing class, you are welcome to join at any time and attend for as many weeks as you need. This offering will be good for homeschool students and for students who want to get extra help in specific concepts. There will be an ongoing update of what will be taught each week. I will be updating the outline often so as to keep parents informed of the concepts that will be taught. I will be offering this class on a Monday/Wednesday 10 am central time schedule and also on a Tuesday/Thursday 9 am or 1pm central time schedule. If there are enough parents who want to create a class during the early evening, I will definitely consider this option. Homeschool Parents: This course will continue the entire school year and will give your child an opportunity to earn credit for the Algebra 1 course. Please note that there will be a place where students will be assessed that you can access to assure your child is successful in the Algebra 1 course. In addition, students will have access to worksheets for homework assignments and answer keys to check their understanding that you can have them put into a binder for proper assessment of the course. Class Structure: I like to teach with the I do, we do, you do method of teaching. Each class I will introduce a topic, work on some examples, have students work examples with me, and then have students work on the examples by themselves to ensure understanding. Hopefully students will have an opportunity to start the assignment during class time and sometimes complete it during the class time. This will give students an opportunity to ask questions as needed. I will post notes and assignments as pdf files on the class page as needed. In addition, I will invite students to join a classroom through ck-12..org This is where I will assign some assignments and assessments. You will be able to access their reports to see their grades at any time. Here is an overview of concepts that will be learned: UNIT 1: Fundamental Concepts UNIT 2: Equations and Inequalities UNIT 3:Functions and Graphs UNIT 4: Systems of Linear Equations and Inequalities UNIT 5: Polynomials UNIT 6: Quadratic Equations UNIT 7: Radical Expressions UNIT 8: Exponential Functions Weekly breakdown: (This will be updated as the school year progresses) Sept 9-12 Review of Order of Operations, Exponents, Absolute Value, Signed Numbers, and Simplifying Algebraic Expressions.

##### Teacher expertise and credentials

###### Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics from Eastern New Mexico University

`Hi! My name is Gail Dykhuis. I have a BS in Mathematics and a Masters in Education. I have taught High School mathematics for 29 years. I have taught basic math, Pre-Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra 2 and Pre-Calculus. I have been Department Lead Teacher for the last 10 years. I have recently decided to join Outschool because I have a passion for Math and enjoy teaching and hope to connect with many students across the world. My teaching style is "I Do, We Do, You Do" . I work some problems to show you about the specific concept, We work some problems together to ensure you understand the process and then finally you do problems on your own to solidify your understanding.`
