During this class time, we will solve math mysteries that I adapted to fit basic skills of finding probability, from the book 65 Short Mysteries You Solve with Math! By: Eric Yoder and Natalie Yoder. I will give a brief overview of how to find the probability of an event before we begin. It is best if your child has been learning or has learned this concept prior to the class. The class is meant to be a fun, social way of practicing math skills. It also shows students some real-life...
For the past 4.5 years, I have worked at a community college. During that time my job consisted of instructing math classes and working with students below college level math and English.

Most students struggle with middle school math concepts in real-world applications. Without this foundation of math fluency and problem-solving student struggle with harder math concepts. As my child starts middle math the urgency of making sure she has a proper foundation of math became real. I decided to homeschool and joined this community of home-schoolers. I believe all students can succeed when they are taught in a style they understand. I would describe my style as Charlotte Mason or discovery, but I feel students need a mix of drill or classical method for foundational math concepts. If you believe that this style is how your learner understands, then I encourage you to sign up for my course.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
