`This class is taught in English.`
```In this FLEX class, students will:

-convert fractions to decimals and percents
-simplify fractions, use equivalent fractions to find percents
-use whole number operations to find mean, median, and range
-strengthen math vocabulary (quartiles, outliers, maximum, etc.)
-analyze and display data```
`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. `

`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).`
