I am a certified teacher with a Masters in Teaching and over 20 years of classroom, small group and one-on-one experience. Math has been my focus for the past 7 years, and I have taught this specific Pre-Algebra class for 5 years.
Homework OfferedHomework will be assigned through Nearpod lessons, practice on IXL and in the optional workbook. It should total around 2-3 hours per week.
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedThere will be ongoing informal assessment, as well as optional weekly lesson tests and Unit assessments. Parents, please contact me about the level of assessment and feedback you prefer for your student.
-Notebook and pencil for taking notes and working problems -White board and dry-erase marker (Optional) -I will post further optional materials or workbooks in the classroom after enrollment (cost of extra materials will not exceed $50 for the entire year)
We will be using the third-party websites listed below that provide interactive, fun opportunities for building mastery and fluency of math concepts and skills: Desmos: An online graphing calculator and so much more! Fun activities that we can work on together as a class that really make math concepts come alive! I will post a direct link in the Zoom chat that will take students directly into the lesson, they only need to enter their first name or nickname so that I know who is who within the lesson. * No account or personal information needed. Nearpod: Educational, interactive tool for presenting my own slide-show lessons and activities (such as matching, drag-and-drop, etc.) I will post a direct link in the Zoom chat that will take students directly into the lesson, they only need to enter their first name or nickname so that I know who is who within the lesson. * No account or personal information needed. Google Jamboard: A great interactive tool for collaborative learning and sharing ideas. I will send a direct link in the Zoom chat that will allow students to enter directly into the specific Jamboard without any kind of sign-up * No account or personal information needed Blooket & Gimkit: Students love playing these fun, fast-paced games with math question banks that I am able to create and tailor to the needs of the class. The report I see after each game serves as a great informal assessment. I will post a direct link in the Zoom chat, students will simply enter their first name of nickname and begin playing the game. *No account or personal information needed Google Slides: I will usually use Google Slides to present lessons through the screen share function, but may at times give students a direct link for activities or games that I have created. *No account or personal information needed IXL: A comprehensive math skill practice website. I will provide students with individual login information (user name and password), so no separate student or parent account is needed and no personal information is shared
