j.	the modulus of a vector
k.	the direction of a vector,
l.	adding of vectors – unit vector notation
m.	unit vectors that are not parallel to the x and y axes
n.	proofs in vectors

4.	Investigations

a.	Patterns in Mathematics
b.	Continuing a pattern
In order for each student to determine their own level of understanding of the Middle (Junior High) School Math course I will provide free of charge and outside of the sixty (60) minutes class questions to be answered. This of course is optional and solely based on the individual student. I would urge ALL students to answer as many questions as possible so that they would know where they need to improve, but it is optional.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Every class will have questions to be answered and graded outside of the sixty (60) minutes class. This  questions and answers will be done free of charge, as it will not be part of the sixty (60) minutes class.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
During the course of seventeen (17) years I have compiled a complete Middle (Junior High) School Math tutorial that I have assembled from various text books to keep up with the changing syllabus, as well as to cater for the various learning levels of every student that I have taught. I have tutored to students that were getting Fs and Ds elevated them to Bs and As.
