Class Experience

Students will learn how many mathematical operations and concepts are used in a real world scenario. They will apply their knowledge of adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing whole numbers, fractions, and decimals as well as measurement and geometry to complete a project based learning activity. 
Students may need to finish calculations/drawings after class, but it is not required to do so. This may take approximately 30 minutes-1 hour each week.
Paper (I will attach graph paper that can be printed)
Pencil (colored pencils, markers, crayons- optional)
Calculator (can use on computer)
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students will be informally assessed during sessions (reviewing calculations) and may submit their final project for feedback.
35 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Research may be needed to find the accurate cost of materials and objects.
