Math Strategies is designed to help students who struggle in math. We will concentrate on the following: Basic Skill Review – This includes computation and vocabulary Problem Solving Strategies – We will work on these both collaboratively and individually. Math Homework Help – This is to ensure students understand the concept beign taught in order to complete the assignment. Working on Individual Math Deficits – through Odyssey Compass Learning.
Mathematics can help us make more informed decisions, work efficiently, solve problems, and appreciate its relevance in the world.
Geometric methods can help us to make connections and draw conclusions from the world in which we live.
Functions and number operations play fundamental roles in helping us to make sense of various situations.
Using prior knowledge, appropriate technology, and logical thinking, we can analyze data and effectively communicate the reasonableness of solutions.
Multiple mathematical approaches and strategies can be used to reach a desired outcome.
Algebraic models, patterns, and graphical representations are tools that can help us make meaningful connections to real-world situations.
What are the essential elements of Algebra that have grown out of the study of Pre Algebra?
How can numbers be used to make comparisons?
How can mathematics help us make more informed decisions, work efficiently, and understand the world around us?
