Description

Meets for 45 minutes per meeting, three days per week, for 20 weeks. 

If you’re looking for a fun, interactive, all-inclusive math course for grades 6-9 math, this is it! The activities in this class get your children thinking and behaving like REAL mathematicians and engineers. If you’re looking to build strong math literacy, fluency, problem-solving skills and metacognition in your children, this is a great foundational class. I don’t provide lectures, but I do introduce Socratic-style discussion in order to help kids learn HOW to think, not WHAT to think. Projects are assigned and discussed to ensure learners fully comprehend each topic I’ll provide printables, videos, projects, and everything needed to have a successful year of math; you’ll provide a few extra elements for in-person activities. These items depend on what your learner chooses. Most projects will be worked on in class, time permitting, but some may be done outside of class.

In class, I’ll use slides and handouts in addition to oral presentation to introduce concepts and information to learners. We will record some as we go along, and some will be recorded on printables. I’ll have virtual flashcards to use to review outside of class. Virtual math labs can be completed as well. I will have printables and worksheets available for each concept.
