## Homework Offered

Homework is assigned every week in either the form of a PDF worksheet or a Khan Academy assignment. If the homework is in PDF form, learners can submit it to me as an attachment through messages in the form of an image, scan, PDF, or DOC.## 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class

## Assessments Offered

To receive a letter grade or a letter of completion, learners are required to complete all assignments, participate in class, and take a cumulative course review test.## Grades Offered

In this class, you can receive a letter of completion, a letter grade, or a pass/no pass option, along with a certificate of completion.

For Algebra 1, learners should have completed pre-algebra, with a strong understanding of arithmetic, basic geometry, and problem-solving skills. Proficiency in working with integers, graphing, and critical thinking is crucial for success.

A working mic, camera, physical scientific calculator and of course pencil/pen and paper! :D

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:

In addition to utilizing Khan Academy, a complimentary online learning platform, this course will incorporate Google classroom for viewing my self-produced lesson videos, which will be similar to my live lessons in classes. YouTube may also be utilized for this purpose, though communication between learners and myself is not possible on either platform due to communication restrictions. All interaction will be conducted exclusively through Outschool and live meetings.
