Description

Class Experience

I am a certified teacher with a Masters Degree in Teaching and over 20 years of classroom, small group and one-on-one experience. Teaching math to middle schoolers has been my focus for the past 4 years, and I have taught this specific Middle School Algebra course multiple times.
Homework will be assigned weekly and will consist of practice problems on Nearpod and Desmos, as well as the weekly math special assignment and teach-a-problem. This homework will be in addition to watching the video slide presentations and completing the corresponding Nearpod lessons. The total weekly time students will need to spend working on this class should be around 4-6 hours (2-3 hours on videos and lessons, 2-3 hours on homework and posting special assignments) All homework, videos and lessons will be posted to the Outschool Classroom.
Students will be expected to:
1. Watch the entire recorded lesson of the google slide presentation introducing the week’s concept
2. Complete the interactive Nearpod activity (no subscription needed)
3. Ask questions via the classroom (written or video) if he or she doesn’t understand something from the video or Nearpod lessons
4. Post either a written, photo, or video response to the Week’s Special Math assignment
5. Choose 1 problem from the homework each week to teach/explain to other students. This can be through video and/or presentation slides, or with a detailed, step-by-step written explanation.

**Once students post their homework,  I will post the answer key for the practice problems and sample answer explanations. The post will also include the weekly Lesson Quiz and a google form link to fill in quiz answers. 
Students should use this 3rd recording to carefully check their work
--graphing paper --ruler --paper --pencil **If joining this session without having previously completed Parts 1 and 2, a list of other supplies to purchase will be sent upon enrollment (cost will not exceed $50 total for the full 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 4+ hours per week outside of class.
I will be providing direct links to educational tools and activities on websites including: Nearpod, Jamboard, Desmos, IXL learning, and Blooket. None of these require students to sign up for their own account (though on some that is an option) or enter any personal information beyond a first name or nickname. Students will simply click on the provided link, enter first name or nickname, and be taken directly to the specific activity created or chosen by me, the teacher. Parent consent is required for students under age 13 to use these resources. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about any of these tools!
