2022-23 Math Classes
MA math courses will balance the hybrid model (utilizing parent and teacher) while working towards increasingly autonomous learning at the upper level courses. All courses will be taught by Corey Boyd, a certified upper level math teacher with over 14 years of classroom experience. Mr. Boyd will hold regular office hours for assistance throughout the week.
Pre-Algebra will consist mostly of direct instruction, with 2 application projects (one per semester) and 2 assessments. The course will follow a teacher-made outline but will be correlated to the Teaching Textbooks Pre-Algebra book. This will give parents access to instructional content that coincides with what is being taught in class. The homework, however, will be given on Edia.app to allow instructor customization and incorporation into Google Classroom.
Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra 2
These courses will consist of Inquiry labs (unit opener), Lecture, Application activities (putting skills to work), and 4 assessments (one each quarter). These courses will also use Edia.app and Google Classroom for weekly assignments, but more of our in-class time will be spent doing student-focused labs and problem solving activities.
Geometry, in particular, will be oriented toward guided discovery and problem solving, with a focus on acquiring new principles through rational reasoning. The skills of Geometry are much easier to master if based in a logical foundation.
Statistics will be taught using the Advanced Placement curriculum, and will be conducted as a seminar course. The students will be responsible for their pacing and learning with the instructor acting as a facilitator, assistant and assessor. If a student desires to take the AP Stats test, they’ll need to register through a local school that’s administering the test. Assistance with this process will be available upon request.
