This Pre-Algebra flex curriculum is divided into 6 parts (a flex class is one in which the classes are pre-recorded and watched on the student’s schedule. NO LIVE INSTRUCTION). In each of these parts your child will be taught the skill and then asked to apply the skill in a discovery lesson (Math Lab). Skill learning will be circular within each part. Meaning a skill that you learned in Part 1 will be retaught with further learning in another part. Below is a breakdown of what you will see in...
In this class we will be discovering ratio, rates, and proportions and how they can be used to solve percentages, consumer questions, and convert measurements. By the end of this class your student will be able to do the following skills: • Understand ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems • Analyze Proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems • Apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to multiply and divide rational and irrational numbers. • Solve problems involving simple interest, sales tax, markups and markdowns, tips and commissions, and percent error. • Compare rational and irrational numbers • Interpret the sum, product, or quotient of two rational numbers in a real-world context. • Compute unit rates where terms are given in fractional units or decimals. • Recognize that a constant of proportionality can be a unit rate • Use proportional reasoning to solve multi-step ratio and percent problems. • Use ratio reasoning to convert measurement units; manipulate and transform units appropriately when multiplying or dividing quantities.
Before coming to Outschool, I worked at a community college for 4 years. During that time, my job consisted of instructing math classes and working with students below college level math and English. During this time, I saw a lot of students who were not prepared for the discovery and problem-solving element of math in college. Most students struggle with middle school math concepts in real-world applications. Without this foundation of math fluency and problem-solving student struggle with harder math concepts. As my child starts middle math the urgency of making sure she has a proper foundation of math became real. I decided to homeschool and joined this community of homeschoolers. I believe all students can succeed when they are taught in a style they understand. I would describe my style as Charlotte Mason or discovery, but I feel students need a mix of drill or classical method for foundational math concepts. If you believe that this style is how your learner understands, then I encourage you to sign up for my course.
30 worksheets with homework videos for grading and re-teaching. 8 quizzes
An assessment will be given to students who turn in all 8 quizzes and do all 8 discussion questions.
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
