Class Experience

In this FLEX class, students will:

-use mental math to solve puzzles
-use inverse operations to solve equations and inequalities
-add, subtract, multiply and divide with negative integers
-graph solutions to inequalities
I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics as well as a Master's Degree in Education with a concentration in STEM.  I have created and collected a wide variety of resources to help students engage in a fun and comfortable way while building a strong foundation in mathematics.   With 20 years of experience teaching in the classroom coupled with 5+ years of experience teaching online to students with varying abilities and needs, I feel extremely qualified to deliver this instruction to learners via Outschool. 
Homework will be to complete the activities of each lesson prior to beginning the next lesson.
It would be nice for students to have a three-ring binder in order to keep track of assignments and notes each week.  I will provide a PDF via Outschool messages that will explain to students what needs to be for the week (objective, discussion question, notes and assessment).  A calculator and graph paper would be nice items to have, however, when possible, I will suggest websites that may have the tools that a learner may need (example: online calculators).
Students will have the option of submitting work to the classroom for feedback.  For certain lessons, a decoder puzzle will be attached, and students will know that they are on the right track by correctly solving the puzzle. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
