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. In this course, first-degree relations are examined exhaustively before higher-order relations are even introduced.

Prerequisites: Students should have finished the first part of Pre-Algebra with me. If parents feel their student has accomplished the material in part one, they are welcome to sign up for part 2. Message me and I will send the unit review of part one so you can be sure. 

Prerequisites: Students should have finished the highest level of Elementary, or General Math available. I believe parents are a good judge of when their child is ready to dive into Pre-Algebra.

How do I know if my child is ready for Pre-Algebra?
* Knows how to add, subtract, multiply and divide using whole numbers, fractions, and decimals.
* Knows "a little" about positive and negative numbers, such as above and below zero on a thermometer, or gaining and losing points in a game.
* Knows how to change fractions to decimals, and decimals to fractions.
* Knows how percent relates to fractions and decimals.
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. 
I will provide the daily problems, quizzes and test in pdf format. Students will need paper and pencil and will be required to upload their work 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 will be a quiz periodically, and one Unit Test at the end of the six weeks. Quizzes will be done in class and the Unit Test will be done on the Student's own time, with parental/guardian signature.
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....
