Class Dates:  Sept. 3 – May 12 (31 weeks)

Cost:  $310, payments can be divided up

Description: Weather permitting we will be outside for this class studying the geometry of the playground, buildings, vehicles, the angle of the sun, and nature. We will look at real world problems involving circles, triangles, quadrilaterals, parallel lines, and three-dimensional shapes. Our study will include looking at angles, area, and volume.

Materials: something to write on and something to write with, graph paper, ruler, protractor, and tape measure

Homework: Students will occasionally be asked to gather data or measurements

Probability of Games

Target Ages: Middle and High School

Min/Max Students: 4/12

Class Times: Thursday 1:00 – 1:55

Class Dates:  Sept. 5 – Dec. 12 (14 weeks)

Cost:  $150, includes a $10 materials fee, payments can be divided up

Description: We will look at the probability behind popular board and card games. We will learn how to use math to count large number of objects and how to use probability to calculate the chance of an event to take place. The class will consist primarily of experiments in counting and probability.

Materials: notebook, pencil/pen, and a TI-30XS calculator

Homework: Students will occasionally be asked to gather data to bring to class the next week

Statistics in the Media

Target Ages: Middle and High School

Min/Max Students: 4/10

Class Times: Thursday 1:00 – 1:55

Class Dates:  Jan. 9 – May 14 (17 weeks)

Cost:  $170, payments can be divided up

Description: We will look at statistical data used in advertising, news reporting, sports and business.  We will learn different ways to analyze and graphically represent a set of numerical data and how data can be manipulated in order to skew the findings in favor of a particular message. Students who have completed at least one semester of Algebra 1 will also learn how to fit a function to the data and use the function for further analysis.

Materials: notebook, pencil/pen, graph paper, TI-30XS or TI-84 calculator (the graphing calculator is needed for the more advanced students)

Homework: Students will be asked to gather data to bring to class each week

Algebra 1

Target Ages:  Advanced Middle School, High School

Min/Max Students: 3/7

Class Times: Tuesday 10:30 - 11:25

Class Dates:  Sept. 5 – May 14 (31 weeks)

Cost:  $310, payments can be divided up

Description: We will primarily focus on learning how to simplify, graph, and solve problems involving linear and quadratic relationships. Additionally we will spend some time learning to simplify and solve basic problems involving exponential, radical, and rational relationships. Each class will include an exploratory or experimental aspect utilizing resources such as the graphing calculator, a science lab, or current events. Prerequisites: Pre-Algebra and Pre-Geometry

Materials: notebook, pencil/pen, graph paper, TI-84 calculator

Homework: Students will have notes to copy into their notebook and a worksheet of practice problems each week.

Geometry

Class Times: Tuesday 2:00 – 2:55

Class Dates:  Sept. 3 – May 12 (31 weeks)

Cost:  $370, payments can be divided up

Description: We will study high school geometry concepts primarily by doing investigations using a dynamic geometry software (Geometer’s Sketchpad) and other hands on activities. Topics covered include transformations, congruent and similar triangles, and properties of parallel lines, triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, and circles. Prerequisites: Pre-Geometry and Algebra 1. *Note: if it is a problem for your student to have access to a laptop for this class please contact me about other options.

Materials: notebook, pencil/pen, ruler, and a laptop loaded with the Geometer’s Sketchpad Program ($10.56)*

Homework: Students will have notes to copy into their notebook and a worksheet of practice problems each week

High School Probability and Statistics

Target Ages: High School

Min/Max Students: 3/7

Class Times: Tuesday 11:30 – 12:25

Class Dates:  Sept. 3 – May 12 (31 weeks)

Cost:  $310, payments can be divided up

Description: During our probability unit we will cover topics such as the counting principle, combinations, permutations, and simple and compound probability. During our statistics unit we will do analyses on mono-variable and bi-variable data sets including measures of central tendency, ranges, frequency tables, graphs, and regression functions. In every class we will look at application problems including application to games, media, business, science, and consumerism.  Prerequisites: Algebra 1 and pre-geometry

Materials: notebook, pencil/pen, graph paper, TI-84 calculator

Homework: Students will have notes to copy into their notebook and a worksheet of practice problems each week.

Math Facts and Mental Math

Target Ages: Elementary and Middle School

Min/Max Students: 3/9

Class Times: Thursday 11:30 – 12:25

Class Dates:  Session 1:  Sept. 12 – Oct. 24 (7 weeks)
