Class Experience

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

-use PEMDAS in order to evaluate expressions
-use integer rules to simplify expressions with negative numbers
-use inverse operations to solve equations
-combine like terms in order to simplify expressions
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.  
Students will be provided with 2 assignments each week to complete, focusing on the topic that was covered.  They will complete this assignment independently so that the feedback provided is reflective of the individual's work.  The time spent to complete homework could range from 10 minutes - 30 minutes, depending on the assignment.
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).
The assessments will be the puzzles students will solve.  Students are encouraged to send me the answers to each of the puzzles for grading and feedback, and I will assist in making corrections as needed.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
