Middle School Math
10:00am-11:30am Tuesdays Ages 13-15
The topics that will be covered include: Negative numbers; Fractions; Decimals; Percentages; Rates and proportional relationships; Solving equations, systems of equations and inequalities; Introduction to statistics and probability; Geometry: angles, triangles, volumes; Geometric transformations; Introduction to data modelling. Specific material will be presented to all students together and subsequently students will work on separate problems, geared to their individual requirements. Group word problems will also be provided towards the end of the class, in order to provide students with the opportunity to use their knowledge to solve real world problems and strengthen their social skills.
I believe that anyone can master Math through proper teaching geared towards his/her specific needs and interests. I love to use real life examples when presenting new material and I believe that any knowledge should be practical.
