High-School Math Exploration Class

12:00pm-1:30pm Tuesdays     Ages 15-18

What initially started as a regular math class was destined to become a math exploration class. As a homeschooling mom, I always try to be flexible in my teaching methods. So when in the fall semester I realized that all my students have different backgrounds, it became obvious that we would need to restructure the class and focus on a lot of individual work. As time went by every student moved at a different pace and showed interest in different topics. One day as I observed that one student was solving quadratic equations, another one was working on trigonometry word problems, and the third one was working on problems from the book Art of the Problem Solving, I realized that our class can now be officially called High-School Math Exploration Class.

There are several things that make our High-School Math Exploration Class special:

  • Students can freely discuss their mathematical preferences and interests with the teacher and jointly pick topics to work on;

  • Teacher assigns individual homework to every student;

  • Throughout the class students get guided one-on -one help from the teacher.

Teacher: Ekaterina Machavariani
