Having taught math for 25 years, I know the importance of being fluent in basic math operations.  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.

Assessment
Frequency: included
Details: At the end of each lesson, a 5-10 problem quiz will be available for the student to complete and submit (optional). I will provide feedback as needed, as well as respond to any questions (typically within 24 hours).
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 with directions on how to get started/how to access all the materials for the lesson.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
