### How does an "Ongoing" course work?

Meets on a weekly schedule, join any week, no need to catch up on previous material
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Automatic payment every Sunday, cancel any time
Great for clubs and for practicing skills

## Description

### Class Experience

```In all classes:  Students will always have the opportunity to engage in communicating about ideas and problem solving methods with other students.

When playing 24:  Students will improve the speed and accuracy of their computational skills.

Students will think flexibly and divergently to consider all possible combinations of number and operation to arrive at 24.

Students will communicate their reasoning clearly for their own solutions or if they object to another player’s solution.

In our rotating games, students will:

Think flexibly and logically

Utilize and sharpen mental math and computation skills

In Dogit-Place:
Students will improve their focus, strategy, and assessment of information to improve their ability to find the number.

Students will embrace mathematical logic and have fun!

In SET:
Students will use visual problem solving to determine which three cards on the board make a set, using four categories: shape, color, number, and shading.

Students will learn to predict what is needed to complete a set given two of the three cards.

Students will formulate informal proofs (such as: I see these two parts of a set, therefore I must look for this part.)

```Math is fun!  Don't believe me?  Give this fun math games club a try!  We will engage our brains, think mathematically, and have a great time as play our games.  Your child will get to know theIr classmates as we share thinking, answers, and strategies.

I taught full-time for sixteen years, and math is one of my favorite subjects! I excel in teaching thinking, problem solving, and pattern finding, not just teaching isolated methods that may not mean much to students.  I believe in providing for play, discussion, and materials you can hold and move in math.  I have a Masters of Special Education of Academically and Intellectually Gifted Students, and taught in a magnet school for gifted students for eight years.  This means I am an expert at challenging students, delving deep into topics, and helping those for whom math isn't their greatest strength.   ```
`Some games require dice.  Some require paper and pencil.   I will post what is needed for each particular class before class begins on the classroom page.`
`50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.`
