Solidifying Foundations of Math

One semester:  offered fall and spring

Teacher:  Lora Marks

Recommended Grade Level:  7-10

Day and Time:  Mondays at 1 pm ET

Prerequisites:  Prerequisites: Student must have had some practice calculating fractions, decimals, and negative numbers; however, these skills do not have to be mastered.

Course Materials:  None

Description:  For two decades I taught developmental math at a community college. Often my students had completed higher level math in high school, but were placed in my basic math classes because they didn’t have a strong foundation of the basics. Those experiences helped me see which math skills were common struggles that can create problems for students at all levels. Completing this course will strengthen computations with integers, fractions, decimals, exponents, and order of operations, which are the fundamentals needed to do well in Algebra and upper-level math classes. It is designed for the struggling student, as well as the student who enjoys math and wants to improve their skills. This course will have a small to moderate amount of homework, so it can be completed during the school year alongside their grade-level math class.
