Depending on where you are, some schools do Pre-Algebra in 7th grade and some will do Pre-Algebra in 8th grade. Students need to have a solid basic math foundation (such as...
Students will gain the knowledge and confidence of Pre-Algebra concepts on an as-needed basis in order to move up to the next step of Algebra.
Optional homework will be posted to the Outschool Classroom once a week. I will post the assignments and the answers keys so you can check your work. Although homework will not be sent to me for grading, please feel free to message me on Outschool Messages at any time with questions about the optional homework or any topics we cover in class so that you don’t fall behind. The optional homework will be in the form of a PDF. I will provide you with a link to a shared Google Drive folder where all the homework assignments and answer keys will be uploaded to.
Notebook or paper to take notes, pencils and ruler.
Checks for understanding will be used throughout a class. I will ask everyone to participate. This is not a graded class but the optional homework is highly recommended to become proficient in the topics learned in class.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Classkick will be used in class so students can work out problems on the screen and only I (the teacher) can see their work. There is no account necessary. To sign on, I will provide a link at the beginning of class and you would click on the link and put students first name and you will be able to log in without any account. To be Coppa Compliant, you will only be able to access Classkick lessons during class time. Once class ends, you will no longer be able to access the lesson. I will provide you with a link to a shared Google Drive folder where all the homework assignments and answer keys will be uploaded to.
We will be using Classkick.com website for class. I will also post the answers to the class work we do in class at the end of the week in the Outschool Classroom. Optional homework assignments, homework answer keys and materials from classwork will be posted as a PDF in the Outschool Classroom once a week. It will be posted via a link to a shared Google drive folder.
