This is our catalog of courses. We will occasionally adjust the course listing to reflect the addition of new courses and the retirement of others.
Middle school is an excellent time to discover, re-discover, or foster a love for the fascinating world of mathematics. Just because something is an essential skill does not mean it has to be boring. Let’s continue building skills and finding the joy of math together!
Math CAN continue to be interesting and fun! Intro to Middle School Mathematics, Part Two continues your student’s journey to advance and solidify knowledge in several areas of mathematics by utilizing videos, Quizlet, games/puzzles, and class instruction, as well as the same color-filled text and workbook from Part One. For this course, we will work on middle school level math concepts, problem-solving, and vocabulary related to Expressions, Equations, Geometry, Probability, and Statistics. In addition to the daily homework, making use of the tools mentioned above, there will be three Section Tests and a Final Exam. This is the course that is taken after Intro to Middle School Mathematics, Part One.
Classes 1-4: Expressions and Equations
