Super Mario Math: Quadratic Equations With Mario (Flex Class w/ Office Hours)
Introduce your learner to quadratic equations and methods for solving them in order to guide Mario in his quest to collect all the coins and stars, defeat Bowser, and rescue Princess Peach. Previous exposure to some algebra recommended.

In this activity, students will construct various quadratics to collect coins and stars in a series of Super Mario levels. Learners begin by learning how to recognize quadratic equations from linear ones before and while constructing quadratic functions that move Mario through each task and on to increasingly difficult worlds. Lesson videos will be released 1-2 times per week to guide learners in introducing new algebra techniques and demonstrating their use in the games. Learners and...
By the end of this course, learners will be able to... + Use function transformations to describe features of a quadratic function + Recognize the difference in features between linear and non-linear equations + Utilize multiple strategies for factoring quadratic equations + Write and systems of linear equations for given points on a parabola + Write systems of equations as a matrix equation and solve by matrix methods

I am certified through the Praxis II (5161) exam to teach high school mathematics (pre-algebra through calculus), but my range of subjects has included ACT/SAT test prep, college-level mathematics, science, logic, languages, and philosophy. As of March of 2019, I have had over 1000 registered tutoring hours on top of 3+ years of experience teaching in the classroom. This background, coupled with my bent for lifelong learning, has given me a knack for finding and rounding out students' weak spots and boosting their confidence in themselves. I've helped many students find the joy in learning math, language, and philosophy by helping them "crack the code" and dissolve the illusion so often impressed on us that everything about these subjects is difficult, complicated, or even impenetrable. It's not. See my Teacher Bio below for further details.
Learners will be expected to complete the Super Mario Quadratics showcase activities assigned at the end of each lesson. All homework will be due by the end of the course, giving students time and flexibility with which to complete them. Learners will additionally have short checks for understanding (called CFU; at other times, "Mastery Checks" or "MCs") posted after each lesson to test for comprehension. Students are expected as part of their homework to complete a short Google Form with their answers to each CFU or MC. Live "office hours" meetings will also be offered for learners who still have questions following lessons (or just want to explore math together) during the week.
Check for understanding (CFUs) will be given throughout the lesson, as well as at the end of the lesson (titled "Mastery Check") to review material and test for general comprehension. Learners should enter their CFU and MC answers in the forms provided in lessons and/or in the forum. There will also be a short comprehensive quiz given toward the end of the course to assess learners' overall comprehension of the concepts presented.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This course uses Google Forms for organizational and tracking purposes. Learners will need to be logged into a Google account (temporary or otherwise) in order to complete the Mastery Checks and final quiz if they wish to receive credit for doing these. We will also be using the publicly available Desmos graphing calculator for lessons and assignments. Desmos is a completely free powerful tool, with no ads and no requirements for creating an account to use.
We will be using the Super Mario Quadratics module in Desmos created by John Rowe. (Note, however, that we will be utilizing a different curriculum than the one detailed in the module.) You can find details at this link: https://teacher.desmos.com/activitybuilder/custom/5c7614041509d870d4838bfd
