Class Experience

This class meets the NCTM Numbers and Operations standard for Mathematics Grades 3-5: Students will develop an understanding of algebra, problem solving, communication, and representation. Specifically, students will be able to:
• Represent the idea of a variable as an unknown quantity using a letter or a symbol
• Develop fluency in adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing whole numbers
• Select and use various types of reasoning and methods of proof
• Create and use representations to organize, record, and communicate mathematical ideas
• Apply and adapt a variety of appropriate strategies to solve problems
• Use the language of mathematics to express mathematical ideas precisely
• Communicate mathematical thinking coherently and clearly to peers and teachers
I’m so excited to offer this class as both a teacher who is a math nut and as a mom with kids who love math! I am a certified teacher, and in addition to teaching education courses for the local university, I currently teach math to small groups in my 2nd grader’s classroom and accelerated math (the Hands-On Equations method) to a small group in my 4th grader’s classroom. Through my small group teaching experiences and background as a professional educator, I have learned so many great strategies for making early math fun and interactive. I’m looking forward to sharing my enthusiasm and experience with you!
Learners will be assigned a practice activity to complete following each lesson.
Printable handouts available upon enrollment. Learners also have the option to purchase the Hands-on Equations student kit available from Amazon for $15.25.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will be assessed through class participation and through performance on assigned practice activities. Grades can be provided upon request.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
