Hi All, Justin here, from Well-Trained Mind. We wanted to give a shout-out to a new series of seminars that our Academy is offering! Just 35 dollars for three, live/interactive, 1.5 hour classes that are followed up with materials...and the pre-recorded class is only $25. Register now! Fractions That Make Sense (taught by Kate Snow) Live Class or Independent Learning Module (ILM) (Self-Paced) Seminar Description: In this three-session seminar, you will learn everything you need to know to teach fractions to your upper-elementary students (approximately grades 3-6). We will uncover what makes these topics so challenging for kids, and you will learn how to teach fractions step-by-step so that your children achieve deep understanding and confidence. After each class, youâ€™ll receive a detailed handout summarizing the sessionâ€™s most important information. Youâ€™ll also receive specific activity ideas so you can use what youâ€™ve learned right away with your own students. Each session will be 1 Â½ hours. No outside homework or reading is required. Weâ€™ll cover everything during class to make the most of your time! Session 1: Fraction Fundamentals (Tuesday, February 21 at 7 pm Eastern) Session 2: Adding and Subtracting Fractions (Tuesday, March 7 at 7 pm Eastern) Session 3: Multiplying and Dividing Fractions (Tuesday, March 21 at 7 pm Eastern)
Does anyone have more info about this particular class, or is it just known that there will be one? I know in the AOPS online classes, the algebra B is the end of the Intro to Algebra book. But of course that book does not include all of the topics traditionally concluded in an algebra 2 honors class, because intermediate algebra will be next and those topics will be included then. But I assume that many or most students who enroll in WTMA are not going to be looking for the full AOPS sequence, and so will be going from algebra 2 to precalculus and then calculus. Or is that a false assumption? (Maybe they are going to continue two tracks, one with all the AOPS a texts and then a more traditional math sequence as well?). So if I sign up for AOPS a algebra 2 with WTMA, I am wondering about the next step. Since their AOPS algebra 1 only goes through chapter 10, I would guess the algebra 2 is when quadratics will initially be covered, so I don't know how they will finish the intro to algebra book and also add in the additional topics. Anyone have insight? (Edited to add tags)
