## Description

### Class Experience

`Students will practice basic math facts (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division); improve their algebraic thinking through puzzles, and be able to identify lines of symmetry in various shapes.`
`I am a certified teacher (Grades 1-6) with a Masters in Teaching and over 20 years of classroom, small group and one-on-one experience. Math has been my focus for the past 6 years.`
`No homework, although I will post additional practice game links in the classroom after class for students to be able to play and practice more on their own time.`
`In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:Google JamboardBlooket`
`No formal assessment in this one time class, though parents are welcome to contact me about their desired level of feedback and assessment.`
`55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.`
```We will be using the third-party websites listed below that provide interactive, fun opportunities for building mastery and fluency of math concepts and skills:
Google Jamboard: A great interactive tool for collaborative learning and sharing ideas. I will send a direct link in the Zoom chat that will allow students to enter directly into the specific Jamboard without any kind of sign-up * No account or personal information needed
Blooket: Students love playing these fun, fast-paced games with math question banks that I am able to create and tailor to the needs of the class. The report I see after each game serves as a great informal assessment. I will post a direct link in the Zoom chat, students will simply enter their first name of nickname and begin playing the game. *No account or personal information needed```
