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)
We are roughly three weeks in for WTMA classes. Wanted to see how others thought about the classes so far, knowing that it is still very early in the year. If you comment, could you include the class name if you are comfortable doing so, and whether the teacher uses the 'workshop model.' Also, if you are using the delayed option, that would be helpful to know!
