Middle School Math A

Middle School Math A and B are designed to provide students with a strong foundation for Pre-Algebra.  Students will be provided weekly lesson videos made by the tutor and practice problems for daily practice.  Class time will be spent reinforcing video lessons through review games, extended practice, and learning problem solving skills.

Students will need to come to class having viewed the lessons and completed their daily homework assignments.  To assess students understanding of the material, quizzes and test will be given in a stress-free environment.  This class is a full curriculum and follows a typical Middle School 6th grade course.

If the COVID-19 pandemic affects our ability to meet in person in a classroom, we will make the following adjustments to this class. Tutor will provide assignments to be completed weekly and supplies as needed to accompany lessons. Tutor and students will meet at the scheduled class time via live video streaming to review material and answer questions. Testing will be submitted and graded/corrected 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 resolves.
