# Traditional Algebra and Nothing Else, Part 3 Of 5

This six-week course is a continuation of the previous Pre-Algebra Mastery course. Part 2 of the pre-algebra course is a prerequisite. (Message me for a placement test if to determine which section is the right class for your student.)

### How does a "Multi-Day" course work?

Meets multiple times at scheduled times

Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality

Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher

Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

## Description

### Class Experience

The study of Algebra is the study of relations. Algebra is a comprehensive exploration of mathematical relationships, including both equations and inequalities. In this course, equations and inequalities are studied together, and distinctions are made only when necessary, to clarify functional differences. The concepts of Algebra develop by degrees. Relations of first-degree should be mastered first. We will continue our investigation of first-degree relations with two placeholders, by examining systems of relations (considering more than one relation at a time), working with special cases, and finishing up with our adventure into story problems. Weekly Breakdown of Lessons: 1. Solution Sets of Equations 2. Solution Sets of Inequalities 3. Graphing Terminology 4. Graphing Techniques for y = mx 5. Graphing Techniques for y = mx + b 6. Graphing Techniques - Intercepts 7. Special Cases - y =a, y > a, y < a 8. Special Cases - x = a, x > a, x < a 9. Absolute Value 10. Finding Relations from Solution Sets: Given the slope and y-intercept 11. :Given the slope and one solution 12. :Given two solutions 13: Special Cases - Given parallel or perpendicular lines and one solution 14. Systems of two open sentences: graphic solutions for equations 15: Systems...: graphic solutions for inequalities Review Mid-Term 16. Algebraic Solution for Equations - elimination by addition 17. Elimination by substitution 18. Special Cases of Solution Sets for Systems: no solution 19. Special Cases...Infinite number of solutions 20. Problem-solving using two placeholders: General setup 21. ...two placeholders: "Number" problems 22. "Age" problems 23. "Geometric Figure" problems 24. "Motion" problems 25. "Percent" problems 26. "Value" or "Mixture" problems Review Prerequisites: Students should have finished the first two units of Pre-Algebra with me. I cannot enroll students who have not taken the previous part two course of Pre-Algebra.

Daily problems will be worked in class, a portion of them together and the rest individually. What is not finished in class will be homework.

This section will require graph paper and a ruler. I will upload a sheet in the classroom so you can print it out if you do not have access to graph paper. I will provide the daily problems, quizzes and test in pdf format in the Outschool classroom. Students will need paper and pencil and will be required to upload their homework into the classroom. I like to see their work, there is no better way to see what they might not be understanding.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.

There are extra days built in for review, if needed, and one Mid-Term and then the Unit Review at the end of the six weeks. If you feel like your student needs extra practice on any of these lessons, let me know...I have extra worksheets and quizzes that I can provide.

3 hours 45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.

#### About Me

I teach Algebra and sewing. I'm passionate about Algebra because I believe it is a fundamental to building the life skills of critical thinking and problem-solving. I also teach some life skills classes, various sewing and needlework classes....
