Class Experience

During the first weeks of class, there will be a focus on working with fractions. From there we will begin to look at decimals and percentages as well and how to convert between fractions, decimals and percentages. In the second half of the course, we will continue our work with all three concepts and there will be time spent computing decimals and percentages as well, using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The focus will be shaped as the teacher works with the students who attend, based on where the most practice is needed. 
There may be practice sheets or problems that students are asked to complete between classes each week to practice the material covered before moving on, and which we will review together as needed. 
It will be important to have blank or graph paper and pencils or a notebook that is dedicated to this subject. Both graphite and colored pencils are helpful for note taking.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress will be assessed through class participation and activities that they are assigned as well as informal in-class assessment.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
