Class Description

These concepts build on the knowledge of the number system learned in elementary school and are essential for success in upper-level math classes such as Algebra. We will start with the basics and build toward solving more complex problems as they relate to real-life applications. In this class, we will present concepts and follow that with a dialogue about those concepts that encourages students to conceptualize and internalize problem-solving skills. Students will be actively engaged in solving problems with real-world applications.

I will focus on instilling positivity and confidence in students, along with open communication and encouragement to ask questions, take chances, and even be incorrect sometimes! Whether learning these concepts for the first time or taking this class as a review, students will complete this class with the fundamentals necessary for success in future math courses.
