This semester we will learn math with Saxon Math 8/7 (required book) using the first half of the curriculum.

Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
I have taught and tutored math for about twenty years. I hold a current teaching certificate in K-8 elementary school, with a focus on math. I am halfway to my master's in secondary math. I really enjoy math - it is very relate-able to food and money! 
Homework Offered
Please contact the teacher if the learner has any questions about the work. 1) "Warm-up Activities" - Learners are expected to complete the warm-up activities. 2) "Lesson Practice" - Learners should complete every problem. The "Lesson Practice" covers the material from the "New Concepts". 3) "Mixed Practice" - Learners should complete every problem. Saxon scaffolds upon previous lessons, so completing all the problems is important. Learners or guardians should check the answers in the "Solutions Book". 4) "Tests" - Guardians should check the answers using the "Solutions book". 5) "Fact Quizzes" - Fact quizzes should be completed with each lesson. No more than one per day should be completed to ensure repetition for learning. 6) "Investigations" - These should be completed as intended. 7) "Topics" - These should be completed as intended. 8) "Supplemental" problems - These are found at the back of the big book for additional problems. They can be completed as needed for additional practice. These will not be reviewed unless a learner requests a specific question.
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Progress will be evaluated during the lessons based on learner work. The teacher may contact the learner's guardians as needed. Guardians are welcome to contact the teacher as needed. Progress will be evaluated with the Saxon tests if requesting a grade. Minute fact tests should be completed without any assistance from calculators, parents, etc. Assigned Saxon tests should be completed without assistance from parents or other people. Calculators may or may not be used, and this will be stated by your teacher when the assessment is assigned.
