I am a certified teacher (Grades 1-6) with a Master's 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 course 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
-White Board and a dry-erase marker for showing answers
--I will post further materials or workbooks needed in the classroom after enrollment (cost of materials will not exceed $50 for the entire year)
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.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
