Series Details

About

This series will cover the NJ standards for 4th-8th grade math (minus the geometry and statistics) by reviewing concepts form 4th-6th grade as well as introducing concepts you'll learn in 7th-8th grade to get you prepared for future algebra classes. It is designed for both: people who struggled with math in the past and need a bit of a helping hand to guide them throughout the school year and build confidence, and people who want to get a headstart in Pre-algebra (or 7th-8th grade math). You will all be given a Virtual Notebook for all important notes, and a Virtual Workbook for problems we'll work on during the sessions (both in the form of Slides). Talking out loud instead of using chat is preferrable and more convinient, but it's completely up to you. Having the camera on or off doesn't matter. We will play a review game at the end of each regular session if time allows.

✋ ATTENDANCE POLICY

This course builds upon itself, so it's imperative that you get back on track as soon as possible if you're absent from any session.

If you expect to be absent from a session, let me know beforehand. If you are are absent from 3 sessions without notifying me beforehand, or are absent from 12 total sessions, you will be withrawn from the series. You can make up an absence by attending the Catchup session.

About the Tutor

I am a rising 11th grader. I have a passion for computer science, astronomy, and history. I am joining Schoolhouse to be able to share some of my knoweldge with others who need it the most, while at the same time trying to get help in areas I need help in as well. Science education in the U.S. is really dumbed down and slow, so I taught myself some advanced topics for an 11th grader thanks to how accessible all this information is nowadays, especially Khan Academy! I speak English fluently; read and speak Spanish really well, although I can't speak it too fast because I start stuttering; and am learning French (A2)

Session 1

Orientation

1. We will introduce ourselves via the Wheel of Ice Breakers™. Everyone will spin a total of two times (one at a time) and get to answer whatever question they got. You can always pass a question and we'll move on to another person. 2. You will complete the Pre-algebra Pretest that will be posted during the session. The test will consist of two sections: Section 1 will cover topics that you (should) have been taught beforehand, and Section 2 will cover topics that you will learn about in a Pre-algebra class. It should take about 25 minutes to complete. 3. Once all the tests have been submitted, we will go over all the Section 1 questions that were answered incorrectly during the remainder of the session. The Section 2 questions are just for me to gauge how well you know some of the Pre-algebra material already, so we will not go over the Section 2 questions. 3.a. The priority of the questions that will be reviewed will be based on how many people answered them incorrectly.
