This Hands-on Equations Word Problems class gives learners a chance to expand and apply what they learned in Hands-on Equations Level 1 and Level 2. Learners will simplify and solve for an unknown variable in word problems using a prescribed process. The class atmosphere will be fun and engaging for learners! In this Word Problems class, learners will continue the process of solving algebraic equations using a physical and visual model to solve for unknown variables. We will take abstract...
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 have taught accelerated math (the Hands-On Equations method) to small groups in the 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 complete a practice sheet after each lesson. They can expect to spend 15-30 minutes completing each activity sheet. The practice activities are important to help learners internalize each of the lesson concepts.
Printable handouts available upon enrollment. Learners also have the option to purchase the Hands-on Equations student kit available from Amazon for $15.25. Link to student kit: https://www.amazon.com/Hands-Equations-Additional-Student-Kit/dp/B004JXSKRO/.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will be assessed through observation of participation and problem-solving. Learners will solve problems with teacher guidance during class. Learners will have access to the chat feature to communicate answers individually to ensure understanding. Grade reports are available upon request.
2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
