Description

Class Experience

Weekly individual homework, taking about 1 hour per week. Required reading from a textbook and some other open sourced materials, in particular Euler's classic textbook.
Pencil, paper, graph paper, ruler. Required textbook: Algebra Structure and Method, Part 1 by Dolciani et al. $24 used on Amazon, $31 or $8 (!) used on thiftbooks.com. --I hesitate to require a textbook, however, most students find the explanations and examples in this book useful. The best things about this book, however, are the prolific problems. So when a subject is difficult, it's easy for me to immediately point a student to the problems they need to practice, especially word problems. Also, this book is an excellent reference for the future. Unlike, say, the AoPS books, this book will allow a student to rapidly review a rusty topic that. AoPS books are great, but Structure and Method covers many crucial topics not found in AoPS (those books have their advantages too, you can even do an "Algebra 3 and Algebra 4" with the plethora of advanced topics in their books).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Parents will receive a written report for each student after the course
3 hours per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
