I am a certified teacher (Grades 1-6) with a Masters in Teaching and over 20 years of classroom, small group and one-on-one experience. Math has been my focus for the past 5 years, and I have taught this specific 5th grade Mastery Math Method for 3 years.
Homework will be assigned weekly through various materials posted to the Outschool Classroom. These should generally not take more than 1-2 hours total to complete. Additionally, on class days I suggest that students take a few minutes directly following class to finish any assigned classwork they were unable to complete

-Notebook and pencil for taking notes and working problems
--I will post further materials or workbooks needed in the classroom after enrollment (cost of materials will not exceed $50 for the entire year)

Optional (may be helpful to have some of these as visuals/manipulatives if available at home):
--base ten or other math blocks 
--small snacks such as raisins or Cheerios
--ruler showing inches down to ⅛ or 1/16 of inch (for weeks 6-8)
--objects to measure with inch ruler
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Ongoing informal assessment through interactive student activities and responses, as well as monitoring student classwork and homework. Weekly lesson quizzes and a final unit test at the end of the session will also be given. Parents, please contact me about the level of assessment and feedback you prefer for your student.
2 hours 45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
