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. 
Homework Offered
Homework will be to complete the activities of each lesson prior to beginning the next lesson.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
The student will have the option of submitting work to the classroom for feedback (typically provided within 24 hours). For certain lessons, a decoder puzzle will be attached so the student can track their own progress.
Grades Offered
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).
