## Description

### Class Experience

```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 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.

```Core objectives
-Use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions.
-apply properties of operations as strategies to add subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions with rational coefficients.
-Understand that rewriting an expression in different forms in a problem context can shed light on that problem and how the quantities in it are related.
- Solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations.
- Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.
-know the properties of integer exponents to generate equivalent numerical expressions.
- Identify rational and irrational square and cube roots.
-Use numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of 10 to estimate very large or very small quantities, and to express how many times as much one is than the other.
-Perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimal and scientific notation are used.
- know that numbers that are not rational are called irrational.
