This course is designed to provide a comprehensive coverage of the concepts in an Algebra 1 course. During this class we will get through 3 chapters. This is a continuation of the first section. Students will apply previous mathematical experiences to solve real world problems. Every class will follow a similar outline. All classes will begin with a short warm up. This could be skills that they may have previously learned before taking this course, or those that we have just reviewed....
In this class students will gain an understanding of a few of the algebraic concepts such as equations of Linear Functions, Linear Inequalities, and Systems of Linear Equation & Inequalities. This will prepare them for the final section of this comprehensive algebra course.
I am certified to teach children for grades K-12. I have been working in education for many years and have seen students gain success with interactive programs. As a special educator, I have learned different techniques to work with all students to support their learning It is my knowledge, skill set, and love of learning that would make me a great educator for your child.
Homework will be a review of the concepts given in class. It will be given at the end of each class and will be expected to be completed by the next class. If the student turns it in at least an hour before class, it will be graded and returned before class starts. Review will happen in the classroom if many students didn't understand the concept and a reteach needs to happen or there is a specific question.
1 file available upon enrollmentMost materials will be provided by the instructor. This will include worksheets and assignments needed to review. Students will need access to a printer to print notes and assignments. A basic calculator is needed (TI-30x) or a graphing calculator (TI-84). If students have access to a smart phone or tablet they can use a calculator app similar to Graphing Calc 2. They can also use the scientific calculator at desmos.com/scientific or the graphing calculator at desmos.com/graphing. These are my favorite. Students should also have blank paper (lined or unlined) for taking notes and writing examples, graph paper for the graphing sections.
Students will be assessed with a mid chapter quiz for all chapters and a test at the end of each topic. There will be a review and practice to ensure that students are learning what they are supposed to be learning.
2 hours 45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Parents should be aware that this course is the second part of an algebra course and students will be expected to have some knowledge of algebra skills gained in the first course. Please note: if there isn't anyone in attendance, there will not be a class recording. I will wait in the class for the first ten minutes. If no one arrives after that, I will leave. I will post notes of what was to be discussed during class.
