Sharon Becker has added an Alg. I class - which was mentioned in an e-mail. Here is the course description. If you have any questions or interest in any of the "add-on" classes (Mary's History, Katherine's Lit., Philip's Computer Science, John's History, Sharon's Alg. I, Katherine's Alg. 2 "study hour", were there any others?), please let me know.
Course Description: A high school Algebra 1 course covering 120 lessons with a semester final and final exam. Classroom instruction will include a review of previous concepts learned each week along with a presentation of the new material from the next 4-5 lessons. Oral drills of the squares and cubes of the first 12 whole numbers and recitation of properties will begin each class. As time permits, students will take turns teaching previously learned concepts.
Course Expectations: Studentswill be expected to actively participate in class, arrive with complete and corrected homework, and willing to discuss any problems not correctly answered. A schedule of assignments will be provided.
Students are welcome to attend classes on an as needed basis throughout the year.
Evaluation: Parents correct homework, administer and correct tests, oversee student’s time management in order to stay on schedule and calculate year-end grades.
