Class Experience

The objectives of this course are:

-use a simple formula to find the perimeter and area of squares, rectangles and triangles
-use a simple formula to find the circumference and area of circles
-use a simple formula to find surface area and volume of a rectangular prism
-to recognize which formula to use when presented as a word problem
Having taught math for 25 years, I know the importance of being able to evaluate the formulas.  Each lesson will be scaffolded, in order to provide students with the stepping stones they need to become proficient with these skills.  I also have a wide variety of resources at my disposal, in order to offer students the support they need in being successful with these topics.
Because this is a flex class, "homework" will be for students to complete all activities in the lesson prior to the release of the subsequent lessons.  Since practice makes perfect, an additional 10 - 30 minutes daily should be spent reviewing the notes taken from each of the lessons- this will help keep the skills fresh for each upcoming topic.
Students should have a 3-ring binder or some type of math notebook in order to keep track of their notes.  A PDF will be sent to students via messages in Outschool on Sundays with an outline/directions of all the activities that need to be completed prior to the start of the subsequent lesson.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
At the end of each lesson, a 5-10 problem quiz will be available for students to complete and submit.  I will grade these quizzes and provide feedback via Outschool messages.  I will also respond to comments posted on our class Padlet page, as well as any questions sent to me in Outlook messages.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
