# Fundamentals of Math

This course is designed to cement all math concepts taught in elementary and introduce new concepts that will be needed to advance in math classes in middle and high school. This is a year of several new concepts that may need extra practice but once learned, will make math much more digestible in the years to come. Practice of these new concepts is the key to understanding, every student is capable and will be given the support needed to be successful. Time requirements are varied depending on past math mastery. Students will be taught these skills and given multiple practice opportunities in and outside of class. This class will incorporate an online platform for homework that will give immediate feedback and assistance when a student may become stuck on a new concept. All lessons will be taught, practiced and assessed in small chunks in order to be clear about the students mastery and if any additional help will be needed. All tests and quizzes are to be proctored by a parent and signed by both parent and child to confirm the tests have been taken without the use of technology of any kind. All tests will be turned into me to be graded.
