In this beginners class, we will collaboratively review the characteristics of simple shapes, such as a square, a rectangle, a triangle, a parallelogram, and a trapezoid (trapezium). Next, the students will learn some simple formulas to determine the area of these shapes. Then, I will work out some simple problems so that it all begins to make sense. Next, we will work out some problems together. Then, the students will solve some simple problems so that I can confirm their understanding...
Students will learn how their knowledge of different shapes and ability to measure area can solve real life questions.
My experience has been that students need to fully understand the basics pertaining to shapes and area before they can be expected to successfully tackle more difficult concepts such as surface area and volume. I love studying math, teaching math, and demonstrating that understanding different mathematical concepts can be useful.
Optional: Some challenge problems may be given so that students can continue to practice their skills.
Please have students come prepared. A spiral notebook and several pencils are recommended.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
During the initial, collaborative time, students will be able to show what they already know about different shapes. Then, they will be able to demonstrate what they learned about area by solving a variety of problems.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
