This 4-week FLEX course teaches about exponents, square & cube roots, coordinate plane, 2 variable equations, linear functions. . Specifically, how to simplify square roots and cube roots, how to identify exponent properties and negative exponents, simplify exponents with variables, and apply scientific notation and order of magnitude. We'll then address linear equations and plots and graphs of linear equations With Pre-Algebra, mastery has to be the goal. And the right teacher knows she can...
By the end of this course, your learner will be able to say "I can square roots and cube roots." "I can simplify square roots and cube roots." "I can identify exponent properties and negative exponents." "I can simplify exponents with variables." "I can identify scientific notation and order of magnitude." "I can apply exponents and scientific notation." "I can recognize linear equations and plots." "I can plot linear equations ."
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!
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 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.
Your student should be comfortable with standard elementary math concepts using operations and fractions. I am using Nearpod as an external resource. No log in is required and the tool is completely private to the students. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, your learner will be guided to a link to a specific Nearpod lesson. He/she won't need to log in in any way. They simply click on the link and the Nearpod lesson will open. That lesson is private to our class only and any inputs your learner provides on that page link will only be seen by me. Videos played on that Nearpod lesson are privately listed youtubes that are made for younger kids by me. By the time the four weeks of the class is over, all Nearpod links will expire. All of this to reassure that a younger learner this FLEX class will not have access through this tool to anything other than math resources and presentations created and presented by me.
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. Nearpod will access YouTube which has videos for this class which were created by the teacher.
