Description

Class Experience

Students will leave this class with an understanding of what a fraction is and with the ability to perform a variety of operations with fractional numbers including addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Students will be able to identify equivalent fractions and will be able to use their understanding of fractional quantities to compare and order fractions with confidence.
As a recently retired Math/Science teacher I have spent countless hours helping elementary school aged children discover the wonder of learning. I was privileged to begin my career in the world of Special Education, taught many years in the general education setting, and ended my career in Gifted Education. Helping students discover their talents, passions, and strengths is one of the things that brings me the greatest fulfillment in life. Encouraging each child to find a way to plug those talents into his or her learning is a vital part of who I am. My work as a Gifted and Talented Specialist taught me the importance of inspiring children to look beyond the obvious to the abstract and helped me to see the joy that comes from viewing every child through the lens of his or her strengths. My hope is that, through my teaching, I can help each child to see himself, or herself, through that lens as well. 
Homework will not be assigned but students may want to practice what we learn in between sessions. I will provide an OPTIONAL challenge opportunity each week. 
Please bring a white board and marker with eraser to each session. If that is not available, paper and pencil will work. At times, students may be asked to bring other household items to demonstrate fractions. (i.e. a student might bring 3 red marbles and 1 blue marble to represent 3/4) I will always let the students know ahead of time if/when they need to bring the "extra" items.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • Kahoot
1 hour 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
