Class Description

The idea of fractions is introduced in early elementary school and built on each year through middle school. We will approach fractions, beginning with a simple idea and building toward solving more complex problems. In this structured class, we will present concepts and follow that with a dialogue about those concepts that encourages students to conceptualize and internalize the 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 to succeed in future math courses.
