Middle School Math B

This course is designed to review all operations with fractions, decimals and percents over 30 weeks for an hour and a half. It will also delve into basic equations and operations with integers. These concepts can be stumbling blocks for many learners and with a good foundation, students will be more successful in middle and high school math courses such as Algebra.  This course will further critical-thinking math skills and should be followed by Middle School Math A.

This course will be supplemented with tutor-made video lessons each week and online assignments through a game-based program. Class time will be spent reinforcing video lessons through hands-on activities and extending the lessons for advanced learners. Students will need to come to class having viewed the lessons and completed their daily online assignments in order to stay on track. This class is a full curriculum and follows a typical Middle School 7th grade course. No supplemental curriculum will be needed.

Curriculum: Holt McDougal Mathematics Course 2

Note: Purchasing the textbook is not required, but rather a helpful resource to have at home. Video lessons correspond directly to the lessons in the textbook.

In the event that the COVID-19 pandemic affects our ability to meet in person in a classroom, I will make the following adjustments to this class. Tutor and students will meet at the scheduled class time via zoom. Assignments can be submitted electronically, and feedback will be provided electronically. Our goal is to meet in person as soon as it is feasible. We may begin classroom meetings at any point during the school year as the COVID-19 situation
