Class Experience

The objective for this class is to help students be more comfortable with their algebra skills.  Students will review ideas such as:

Combining Like Terms
Operations with Negatives
Solving Multi-Step Equations
Order of Operations
I've been a secondary educator for 25 years.  I LOVE using games and puzzles to help students build their math foundation.  This 30-minute boost for math will be a quick, fun way to develop math fluency and walk away with a good joke to share with others!
No homework will be assigned.  If we are not able to complete a puzzle with the time frame, problems will be provided for students in the classroom as a PDF to finish on their own.  An answer key will be provided for them to check their work.
Scrap paper and pencil should be used while solving problems.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will provide feedback to students as we are working.  If they are able to find the answers in the decoder as we are working, they will know that they are doing the problems correctly, and I will assist as needed.  By the end of class, students should have a complete answer to the decoder (answer to the joke). 
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
