Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn and apply concepts from the second half of the PreAlgebra curriculum. Focus concepts are: Roots, Exponents, & Scientific Notation; Multi-Step Equations & Two-Variable Equations; Functions, Linear Models, & Systems of Equations; and Geometry.
I have taught and tutored mathematics to 3rd - 8th graders for over 20 years - including my own 3 children:-). I have my Masters Degree in Education along with my 7th - 9th grade math certification. I coached middle school robotics teams for 20 years, taught college-level education classes, and served as a consultant to Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Academy writing math & science robotics curriculum. 
Homework will be assigned at the end of each class on Khan Academy, will connect to our daily lessons, and will be due one hour before the next class. Students should expect to spend 10 - 20 minutes/class day outside of class on their homework depending on their skill level, which allows for independent practice on the skills covered in that day's lesson. Khan Academy provides practice exercises and instructional videos and gives immediate feedback to the student if their solutions are correct or not. 

Khan Academy is an online tool that allows me to assess the student's strengths and see the exact problems they struggled with. Students will join my Khan Academy class with a code given that will be posted before the first day of class in the Outschool Classroom. Parents will also be given information on how to sign up to view their child's progress on Khan Academy.

Students should have a notebook to write down our class work and notes on, as well as use it for their homework problems. Students should use either a pencil or erasable pen to keep their work clear and organized. A dry erase board and marker could also be used. Students will be provided with daily notes that will be available as part of their "PreAlgebra 7th & 8th Grade Math | Spring Semester 2" Welcome Packet once they enroll. Students can either print out the notes or view them as a PDF on their device. Students can paste the daily notes into a notebook as we go and then use following pages for their classwork and homework, or put them in a binder or folder to have as a resource during class. Students will need to access www.khanacademy.org for daily homework. Instructions how to access Khan Academy are in the "PreAlgebra 7th & 8th Grade Math | Spring Semester 2" Welcome Packet and will be on the Outschool Classroom. I will stay after our 1st class to make sure all students have successfully joined our Khan Academy class, so they are set for the first night's homework assignment.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
In addition to informally assessing the learner through class activities and participation, the student will be assessed through their homework exercises and quizzes & tests on Khan Academy. 

Parents will receive a percentage grade and an individual write-up of their child's progress half way through the semester (after Day 11) and again at the end of the semester (after Day 22).
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
