Class Experience

Students will learn how to read a map in multiple ways, including using an alphanumeric grid, cardinal directions, and measuring distance by using the map scale. While using the map, we will discuss ratios and work through multi-step word problems requiring students to measure distances on the map and convert between different units.
No homework will be assigned. Optional practice problems will be provided if desired.
Please provide paper and pencil or whiteboard and marker, as well as a ruler if you have one.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress is assessed through teacher observation throughout the lesson and an exit ticket problem at the end of each lesson. 
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
