Golly! I Mastered Pre-Algebra & Had Fun Practicing With Friends | Part 1 of 6 | Operations with Integers (FLEX)

This 5-week FLEX course teaches place value, expanded form, rounding/regrouping, order of operations, writing expressions, arithmetic (commutative/associative/distributive) properties, add, subtract, multiply & divide negatives & opposites. It's the basics of math properties that all pre-algebra classes begin with, but If your student is strong in math, you may consider moving directly to the second part in this series.

How does a "Flex" course work?

No scheduled live video chats

Great if your learner prefers independent pacing or is uncomfortable with live video chat

Description

Class Experience

At the end of this Flex Class, your student will be able to say:

"I can identify Place Value" "I do Rounding, and Regrouping."
"I can perform Order of Operations." I can Write Expressions from a word problem."
"I understand and can easily us Negative Numbers, Opposites, Absolute Values."
"I can perform Operations with Negative Numbers."
"I understand and can apply Arithmetic Properties including Commutative, Associative, and Distributive"
"I know what Rational numbers are and how they are impacted by operations."
I've been certified in the public schools for teaching math in middle and high schools. I received additional certified training for gifted and talented learners. I taught math for sixteen years and I've been a personal SAT tutor for seven years. My students have typically raised their scores between 100 and 300 points.  As a chemical engineer and project management professional in the world of business consulting and information technology consulting, I've completed over five levels of college calculus and applied mathematics and used these math and computing skills throughout my career.  

The students I have taught had varying learning abilities that ranged from one with pronounced learning disabilities to gifted and talented. When it came to PSAT's and SAT's, each of them with impressive improvements in their scores. 

It can be done!  I used a focused approach. We honed in on trouble areas, really understood the underlying math concept, and drilled for mastery.
The class is designed for the student to complete all of their work in class.  Additional problems are provided for students who need additional practice for mastery.
Paper, pencil, and a brain ready for thinking fun!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
On the last week of each level is an assessment for the content of that level.  Feel free as a homeschooled parent to use those assessments to calculate your child's grade.  Or, if your learner is not homeschooled, feel free to use those assessments to benchmark how well your learner is doing.

I intentionally include the assessment as part of the forth week of each level. However, if I were teaching the course to a class, this assessment would take an extra week of time for study review and proctoring. I leave that up to the parent and learner. If you feel you need an extra week, the material will still be available for you work work on through the Nearpod links, and you can simply take an extra week before signing up for the next level.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
If your student is strong in math, you may consider moving directly to the second part in this series. The entire series has six parts. There are challenging concepts throughout, but I often find that a parent signs their child up for this first one as part of the whole series, but finds their student is willing and able to begin with part two immediately.
Students will see the lessons on Nearpod which will not require logging in to view. Students should have  the ability to use their mouse and/or keyboard to annotate.
