This course is designed for the student going into 5th grade math OR the 5th grade student who is struggling, needs extra practice or an alternative way of doing calculations. To build a strong foundation of math basics you need to learn and practice. Various strategies such as classroom activities, video clips and music will be used in this course. These training methods will be implemented to teach students about shapes, lines, angles, and their inter-relationships. These skills are the building blocks needed to excel in higher level math classes.

This class can be taken in conjunction with a traditional math class.

This is SUPPLEMENTAL to help strengthen a child's skills.

Instructor: Margie Mascolino

Grade Range: 4th - 5th

A minimum of 5 students must enroll for this class to be held.

This course is a complete, first year Algebra course. The fundamentals learned in this course are the precursors to all future math education! Understanding and applying basic algebra is key to being successful in Geometry, Statistics, Trigonometry, Algebra 2, Chemistry, Physics and even Calculus!

Topics include learning manipulation of variables in expressions and equations, order of operations, data analysis, operations with rational numbers, solving equations, solving inequalities, inverse variation, writing function rules, rate of slope and change, writing linear equations, graphing absolute value equations, linear inequalities, properties of exponents, polynomials, factoring, quadratic equations, radical equations, and rational expression. Students will apply principle-based strategies with a synergistic emphasis on the three major areas of visual representation of algebraic concepts, manipulation of algebraic equations, and application to practical problems. The graphing calculator will be used to reinforce mathematical concepts throughout this course.

Successful completion of Algebra 1 will give students the foundation they need for all high school math and science courses that require Algebra as a prerequisite.

This course is a complete, in depth high school, second year Algebra course. This course is designed to build upon students' previous work with linear, quadratic, root and exponential functions. Students will expand their knowledge and develop their problem-solving skills while manipulating functions to include logarithmic, polynomial, rational, and radical functions incorporating material learned in Geometry and Algebra 1. This course will prepare students for enrollment into Pre-Calculus and Statistics.

Throughout this course students will be challenged to expand their algebraic knowledge studying new topics such as the real and complex number systems, graphing techniques, matrices, logarithms, trigonometry, sequences and series, conic sections, and an introduction to probability and statistics while continuing to hone their ability to utilize inductive and deductive reasoning, and to think analytically to solve problems.

Instructor: Jodi McGee

Grade Range: 8th - 12th

Have you ever wondered when you are actually going to use algebra in real life? In this course, students will discover how to find and manipulate math in the world around them. We focus on learning how to identify variables and set up algebraic expressions of increasing complexity. We’ll find mysteries that use linear, quadratic, exponential, and trigonometric functions. Our numerical mysteries will come from physical science, current events, and student-selected topics. Because of the different kinds of functions, we will be exploring, students should have a solid grasp on Algebra 1 content before taking this course. Younger mathematically gifted students are welcome to take this course.

Due to the nature of this course, it is hosted on the Zoom platform. The instructor will email you before the start of the course about downloading the free software, so students can join the meeting. Just as all other classes at OTA, you will be provided a link in Canvas that directs students to the meeting. After each meeting is finished, the instructor will post a link to the class recording. If you have any questions, please email the instructor at lindsey@opportunityunlocked.com
