Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Learners will understand that the field of astronomy depends on math, and also that math can help explain scientific ideas and discoveries.
I specialize in finding fun twists to standard curriculum to help my students build critical thinking skills as well as scientific knowledge.  By adding a new twist to a familiar topic we can expand our thinking to include new possibilities. I have taught math to homeschool students for the last 16 years and during that time I have developed many teaching techniques and hands-on projects to help students explore concepts in new and exciting ways. 
For each class learners will need blank paper and a pencil. Some classes may require additional materials such as a compass/circle tool, protractor, ruler, colors, or printouts.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I teach the Big Bang theory of the formation of the universe and that the universe is billions of years old. This can sometimes come up even if it's not the topic of the day's lesson as learners can find connections I may not be able to predict.
