Description

Class Experience

Students will learn key concepts about multiplication: skip-counting, factors, multiples, least common multiple, the commutative property, the distributive property, prime vs. composite numbers. 
I love making math visible to students. When I work with visual and hands-on models, it helps my students internalize core concepts and build number sense. I have been teaching with these kinds of models for 12+ years and I have fun doing it!
Three to five "Practice and Participation Opportunities" are offered each week. These are tasks that learners can use to practice the skills that they have been working on. Learners may respond to one or more of these with videos, or with photographs and written responses to the Outschool classroom. 
Students will need access to a set of LEGO® bricks* in a variety of rectangular sizes. I recommend trying to have the following: About twenty 1x1 bricks Sixteen 1x2 bricks Eight 2x2 bricks Eight 1x3 bricks Eight 2x2 bricks Four 2x3 bricks Four 2x4 bricks Students should also have a pencil or pen and graph paper. *The brand is unimportant — students can use another LEGO®-like toy and the concepts will be the same. I use this kit: https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00NAPJ8DM. If you look at the "What's in the Bag?" picture, you can see what kinds of brick sizes and shapes I like to have on hand. Only rectangular bricks are used in this class. I also pre-sort my bricks into bags according to size/shape (ex: all the 8x2 bricks are in a bag, all the 4x4 are in a bag, all the 6x1 are in a bag, etc). The advantage of flexible-scheduling is that learners can take the time to find what they need for each activity.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
