Class Experience

Students will learn the basic actions as well as common code words for the four main math functions.  They will also learn commonly used "code words" to help them know which function will help them solve the problem.  Then we will go over additional strategies for solving word problems.  To make sure they understand, we will be doing examples as we go and, at the end of class, they will have the opportunity to make up their own word problems.
It might be advantageous to have paper and pencil handy for working out some problems or writing their own.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
