I have enjoyed teaching math for many years now and strive to make this class as enjoyable and pain-free as possible, but with that said the student will definitely need to put in the time each week to complete their homework. It is a twice a week class, Mondays and Wednesdays. I have made videos for the student to watch each week before they come to class, which will provide them with a clear picture of what to expect for the week, not to mention I do a portion of their homework in the videos. 😊 The videos will also help if your family is out of town or the student misses a class. You will need to have Google classroom to view the videos and Marco Polo for one on one communication as needed.
Major Concepts and Skills Covered:
*Graphing linear equations and inequalities
*Describing linear equations in slope-intercept and standard form
*Solving systems of equations using graphing, substitution, and elimination
*Expanding understanding of exponents
*Solving basic quadratic equations with factoring
*Using unit multipliers to convert between units of measure
Requires Math U See Algebra 1. Prealgebra prerequisite.
Homework: 1-2 depending upon the students knowledge of the subject

This is a CORE class that meets twice a week on Mondays and Wednesdays for the full year. Parents are required to attend the mandatory Core Parent Meeting immediately following Family Orientation on either August 24th at 2pm, August 24th at 6pm, September 7th at 2pm, or September 7th at 6pm.
Algebra 1 (dark brown book) twice a week on Mondays and Wednesdays. This course covers: positive and negative numbers, variables, graphs (lines, circles, ellipses, parabolas, hyperbolas), absolute value, metric conversions, negative and fractional exponents, square roots, factoring polynomials, and more. It is very important that the student has a good understanding of: fractions (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division), decimals and percents, and solving for an unknown. Students will have access to a weekly video they will need to watch before coming to class each Monday.
*** I am charging a $20 supply fee for each student so I can integrate key components from the new Math U See Algebra 1 Principles of Secondary Mathematics book into some of the lessons from the Math U See, Algebra 1 book you are purchasing for this class.
Requirements:
*Book requirement: Math U See Algebra 1 student pack (dark brown)
https://store.demmelearning.com/algebra-1-student-pack.html
**Student requirements:
Google Classroom app, Marco Polo app, complete all homework and tests
*** Parent requirements: Weekly signatures on Lesson E and test(s). IEP students must be accompanied by a parent each week.
*See important note below.

It is very important that the student has a good understanding of: fractions (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division), solving for an unknown, and basic graphing of linear equations. Each student will have access to a weekly video they can watch before coming to class to help assist them in their understanding of the lesson. This is very helpful if your family goes on vacation or needs to miss a week. *****Also sign up for Introduction to Mathematical Modeling: Algebra 1 as a great addition to the Algebra 1 class. Giselle (Jaz) Veach has a degree in engineering and a heart to stop the most frequently asked question in math, “When am I ever going to use this?” She is using the same math book we will be using (no need for extra materials) each Wednesday from 2-3pm to teach the kids how to apply the Algebra 1 equations they’re working on to real life studies.
Requirements:
Algebra 1 student pack https://store.demmelearning.com/algebra-1-student-pack.html; Google Classroom app; Marco Polo app; Parent's signature on student's weekly quizzes; All IEP students must be accompanied by a parent during each class

In this class we will continue to use the Math-U-See Algebra 1 curriculum to develop a deeper understanding of concepts such as: graphing linear equations and inequalities, slope-intercept vs. standard form, solving systems of equations, exponents, quadratic equations, converting between units of measure, and more. This class is held on both Mondays and Wednesdays, and in addition, students will be expected to complete 2-3 hours of homework each week. Extra videos may be provided for additional support.
Math-U-See is a skills-based program that focuses on student mastery of a concept before progressing to the next concept. A syllabus will be provided for students and parents.
Using the curriculum Math-U-See, students will learn about Algebra 2. The course covers topics involving factoring polynomials, using the quadratic formula, applying the binomial theorem, and working with imaginary numbers. Each week, students will be taught a new lesson on Monday with review and practice on Wednesdays. Video lessons will be made available for support. Requires Math-U-See Algebra 2 Student Pack which includes the student workbook and test book. It costs about $45.
Homework: 3-4 hours/week
