Class Experience

At the end of this course, the student will be able to say, "I can..."
- tell you what polynomials and quadratics are (including monomials, binomials, trinomials, degree of equations, leading coefficients, standard, vertex, and factored forms)
- determine the real roots (zeros or x-intercepts) of a quadratic
- complete the square
- plot / graph quadratics (axis of symmetry, vertex, upward/downward facing)
- apply the quadratic formula
- solve word problems that have quadratics in them (including SAT/ACT test questions on quadratics).
I've been certified in the public schools for teaching math in middle and high schools. I received additional certified training for gifted and talented learners. I taught math for sixteen years and I've been a personal SAT tutor for seven years. My students have typically raised their scores between 100 and 300 points.  As a chemical engineer and project management professional in the world of business consulting and information technology consulting, I've completed over five levels of college calculus and applied mathematics and used these math and computing skills throughout my career.  

The students I have taught had varying learning abilities that ranged from one with pronounced learning disabilities to gifted and talented. When it came to PSAT's and SAT's, each of them with impressive improvements in their scores. 

It can be done!  I used a focused approach. We honed in on trouble areas, really understood the underlying math concept, and drilled for mastery.
I have lots of drill problems done interactively through nearpod.com.  Your student will have terrific and ample opportunity to practice.
A graphic calculator is required. (TI-84 is an example). Bring paper and pencil and a great attitude for learning.
My assessments are done on nearpod.  The students have their system of tracking their scores clearly laid out for them on each assessment so that by the end of the course, you will have all grades and can report a score. Assessments are provided weekly.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
You, as a parent or as a learner, should make sure that someone beginning this class has the foundational skills for working with linear equations including understanding the coordinate plane, slope, intercepts, equation forms, plotting, and developing the equation from a graph.

As far as external resources, here is a parental guidance statement for each tool used:

I am using Nearpod as an external resource. No log in is required and the tool is completely private to the students.  On Tuesdays and Thursdays, your learner will be guided to a link to a specific Nearpod lesson.  He/she won't need to log in in any way. They simply click on the link and the Nearpod lesson will open. That lesson is private to our class only and any inputs your learner provides on that page link will only be seen by me.   By the time the four weeks of the class is over, all Nearpod links will expire.

Videos played on that Nearpod lesson are privately listed youtubes that are made for younger kids by me.  All of this to reassure that a younger learner this FLEX class will not have access through this tool to anything other than math resources and presentations created and presented by me.
Students will see the lessons on Nearpod which will not require logging in to view. Students should have  the ability to use their mouse and/or keyboard to annotate. Nearpod will access YouTube which has videos for this class which were created by the teacher.
