I am offering this class specifically in response to a request for "Introductory math for older unschooled kids". Therefore, I will start by determining what math the student or students do know. We will build on what they do know, and then add knowledge in math gradually. I am also offering this as a one-time class to start, but with the potential of making it a recurring class if desired. We will start with addition, then, if the students would like to continue, proceed to subtraction,...
Students will start by showing me what they do know about math. Then, we will build on the basics - being able to add numbers quickly and correctly. Next, if the student desires to make this into a multi-day course, we will work on understanding subtraction and how it is related to addition. After addition and subtraction are comfortable processes, then multiplication will be addressed, first as a concept (what it is and why we use it) and then working on facts. After multiplication facts become comfortable, then we will approach multi-digit multiplication. Finally, we could look at division - first understanding what it is and why we use it, and then practicing examples in growing complexity as the knowledge base grows.
For this class, no homework will be assigned or expected. If the student desires to make this into a multi-meeting class, then homework would be assigned after each meeting. These assignments would be specific to the concept discussed in that meeting (i.e. addition problems with double digit numbers, if that is what we discussed in class) and a small to moderate amount (fewer than 10 problems at a time). The emphasis would always be on quality of work, and understanding the process, rather than quantity.
Paper and pencil will be needed.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
As requested, no grading would be done of the work. The student/students would be taught how to check their own work, to make sure that it is correct.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
