Over the course of a month, learners will be introduced to the basics of algebraic equations and learn how to solve them in a variety of simple contexts.

Class experience

```Learners will translate between algebraic equations, visual representations, and situational descriptions.
Learners will use inverse operations to solve equations, in visual and algebraic form.
Learners will write equivalent forms of expressions and equations.
Learners will consider and evaluate different strategies for solving equations.
Learners will consider and evaluate solutions to equations, based on algebraic and situational criteria.
Learners will solve problems about percent increase and decrease, such as discounts, sales tax, and population growth.
Learners will solve equations for unknown angles.```
`I have a master's degree in math education for grades 5-12, as well as further graduate coursework in mathematics, and teach developmental, dual credit, and regular math classes for my local junior college.`

```Scratch paper and pencils, or a whiteboard and markers.
Learners who are preparing for college admissions are advised to keep a portfolio (digital or on paper) of major assignments and 2-3 different types of problems, fully worked, per routine assignment; the materials of the student's choice should be available for this from the beginning of class. Examples include a Google Drive or Dropbox folder, LibreOffice software (Writer and Math), a binder and hole-punched printer paper or a hole puncher, etc. If you may apply to multiple colleges, consider that a digital portfolio is easier to duplicate, and can be printed if a physical copy is wanted.
For this class, learners can use GeoGebra exclusively as their graphing calculator. Learners with future plans involving taking exams like the SATs should consider getting and beginning to use a calculator approved for those exams as soon as possible.```
`In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:Explain EverythingGeoGebraTeacherMadeProdigy`
```.css-47miec{margin-top:0rem;}GeoGebra Classroom is a free educational website that uses open-source dynamic geometry software to help learners explore mathematical concepts. The website allows teachers to view and monitor learners' work in real time, and learners can also choose to create accounts that allow them to save and access their work at a later time. To use the site, learners will need to provide a name or nickname, which the teacher can use to identify their work in the teacher interface. This information is only used for the purpose of tracking progress and is not shared with any third parties. Learners are welcome to use a pseudonym or nickname if they prefer to maintain their privacy.
TeacherMade is an educational website designed for use in schools. It provides learners with access to a variety of worksheets, tutorials, and practice problems to help them learn and reinforce important concepts. To use the site, learners can either use their real names or choose to sign in with a pseudonym or nickname for added privacy. The website is designed to be safe and secure, and all learner information is kept confidential and only used for the purposes of tracking progress and providing personalized learning experiences.
Explain Everything is a shared whiteboard platform that allows learners to collaborate and share their work in real time. It is similar to Google Jamboard, but offers more flexibility and customization options. To use the platform, learners do not need to create an account and can simply access the board through a unique link. If learners do not wish to write on the board, they do not need to access Explain Everything at all – learners can simply watch and participate in the discussion in Zoom. The platform is designed to be safe and secure, and all learner information is kept confidential.
Prodigy is a gamified math practice webapp that learners can use to reinforce their math skills and knowledge. While using the app is not required, it is offered as an optional resource for learners who want to get extra practice or have fun with math. The app is designed to be safe and secure, and all learner information is kept confidential.```
