### Beginning-of-Year Review | Precalculus, Module 1

#### Class experience

###### US Grade 10 - 12

Class sessions will include group activities, opportunities for learners to ask questions, and demonstration and discussion of tricky problems. Between class sessions, learners will be given information in written and video form, as needed based on the topic (for example, a process of how to solve a problem would usually be given in video rather than written form, to allow for proper notation and verbal step-by-step explanation), in the class discussion area. The general topic outline for...

Learners will review prerequisites: the basics of the real number system; exponents and radicals, including scientific notation and rational exponents; key concepts and calculations with polynomials including factoring; and, working with rational expressions. Learners will graph solution-sets to equations. Learners will reliably solve one-variable equations which are linear, quadratic, or absolute value, accurately identifying situations in which solutions do not exist. When studied techniques are applicable, learners will solve one-variable equations which are higher order polynomial, radical, rational, or related to a quadratic equation. Learners will solve linear and absolute value inequalities, expressing answers as graphs or in interval notation. Learners will use the constant velocity formula d=rt. Learners will use plane geometry formulae for area and perimeter of rectangles. Learners will use the solid geometry formula for volume of a rectangular prism. Learners will use analytic geometry formulae for distance and midpoint.

I have a master's degree in math education for grades 5-12, as well as further graduate coursework in mathematics, and teach developmental, dual credit, and regular math classes for my local junior college.

## Homework Offered

Learners will have practice assignments in TeacherMade for each lesson, and sometimes also quizzes and tasks using skills from many lessons. Occasionally, such as to clear group time for interactive tasks, learners will be assigned informational videos to watch outside class time.## 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class

## Assessments Offered

## Grades Offered

Scratch paper and pencils, or a whiteboard and markers. Learners who are preparing for college admissions are advised to keep a portfolio (digital or on paper) of major assignments and 2-3 different types of problems, fully worked, per routine practice assignment; the materials of the student's choice should be available for this from the beginning of class. Examples include a Google Drive or Dropbox folder, LibreOffice software (Writer and Math), a binder and hole-punched printer paper or a hole puncher, etc. Consider that if you are applying to multiple colleges, a digital portfolio is easier to duplicate, and can be printed out if a physical copy is wanted. For this class, learners can use GeoGebra exclusively as their graphing calculator, but students whose intent is to take a credit-bearing exam should begin practicing with a calculator approved for that exam as soon as possible.

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:

TeacherMade is a site designed for school use which allows learners to access and complete worksheets, tutorials, and practice problems. If they wish, such as for added privacy, learners can sign in using a nickname or pseudonym. GeoGebra is a free, open-source math calculator, graphing calculator, and dynamic geometry site. Learners do not need an account to use it. Explain Everything is a shared whiteboard, similar to Google Jamboard but more flexible. Learners do not need an account and can access the board to write on it through a link. Learners who do not specifically want to write on the board don’t need to access Explain Everything at all – I will share the screen in Zoom and they can watch. myOpenMath is a math practice site designed for school use.
