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

Note that the Thursday 11AM session continues to meet under the old format of 40 minutes once per week because these students have been on the same schedule since spring of 2021.  All other sections will be twice a week for 25 minutes per week.

For the student to increase proficiency, understanding, and speed on the following topics:  
1 | Points, Lines, Segments, Rays, Angles, Sets - Points, Lines, Rays, & Line Segments, Planes and Sets,Angles,Parallel and Perpendicular Lines, Supplementary and Complementary Angles, Transversals

2 | Area, Volume, Surface Area: Rectangular Solid, Cylinder, Pyramid, Cone, Prism, Sphere - Area, Volume, & Surface Area of Rectangular Solid, Cylinder, Pyramid, Cone, Prism, and Sphere, and Surface Area of Solids

3 | Transformations, Similarity, & Congruency - transformations, distance, midpoints, triangles, angles, acute, obtuse, complimentary, supplementary, vertical angles, perpendicular, parallel, angle sum theorem, parallel lines cut by a transversal, side-angle-side, similarity, angle-angle-side, side-side-side. 

4 | SOH-CAH-TOA Basic Trigonometry - SOH CAH TOA; sine, cosine, tangent, Inverse Trigonometry functions, finding the angles, Solving right triangles, Trig short cuts - triples and complementary angles, Applications in trigonometry- word problems, Reciprocal Trig Functions

5 | Circle Theorem - Area of Circle, Sphere and Ellipse, Inscribed Circumscribed, Chords, Arcs, Secants, Tangents, Theorems: (Perpendicular Tangent, Perpendicular Diameter, Congruent Chord, Congruent Tangent Segments, Inscribed Angle, Tangent Chord, Exterior Intersection, Chord Product, Secant Secant, Secant Tangent , Non-Central Angles formed by Chords, Exterior Angle formed by Tangents & Secants)
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.  
No homework will be assigned for this class.
Learners should have a graphing calculator (TI-84 or similar), a compass, and a protractor. It's a good idea to always have pencil and paper when taking a math class. Most learners assume it, but as a parent, perhaps remind them because I notice that many times students are having to run in the other room to look for tools to write with and paper to write on. The compass is good to have on hand because I insert into the teaching lots of points where we pull out the compass and draw what we are talking about. Students really enjoy this but it only works if the compass is right there for them to use.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The learner's progress is assessed by how well the learner participates in the interactions during class.  
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
It's a tutoring session. The parents and student determine the content within the constraints of Geometry.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
