#### Middle School Math Course Description

This Middle School Math class will prepare students for Pre-Algebra.

Various strategies such as virtual manipulatives, online games, classroom activities, video clips, music, and the standard algorithms will be used in this course.

All of these training methods will be implemented to teach computations which will prepare the student for Pre- Algebra.

#### Live Online Classroom

Students are encouraged to actively participate in the live class. It is so much fun to collaborate with each other, write on the board, and view video clips. You can choose to talk during the class OR text me privately with answers to questions. No pressure. You will be comfortable in the online classroom. We work together to learn and practice each math concept. We all make mistakes, and that is how we learn! However, if you miss a live class, please watch the recordings promptly.

#### Weekly Homework

Students will be given 4 homework assignments, such as a worksheet or internet activity, to complete over a 4 day period. It is suggested that the student do 1 assignment per day so they can practice math every day. Homework should not be stressful; it will be a review of the topics covered during our online class. Homework will be given as handouts and/or online assignments.

#### Homework Policy

The goal of homework is to reinforce and explore the concepts that were taught in class. This is a core class, and you will need to keep up with assignments. Contact me if your assignments will be late. I will work with you. Otherwise, 5 points off per day.

#### Additional Policies

Students should conduct themselves appropriately with their speech and texts during our live class. Students who are unable to adhere to this type of conduct may be separated from the class or removed from the session.
