Essential Math focuses on mastering the skills needed to be successful in life and to get ready for Algebra.  Topics for Essential Math include problem solving, estimation, decimals, percents, fractions, proportions, money skills and basic geometry-students will learn to handle the basics with a deeper understanding and a greater degree of accuracy.  The class is co-taught by a special education teacher and a mathematics teacher.  The length of the course is one or more semesters, depending on the needs of the individual student.

In Essential Math, students use the Holt McDougal Mathematics series within the learning management setting to view videos of topics and complete practice assignments. The student will be scheduled to meet in a webinar with one of the teachers at least weekly, either individually or in a small group.

 Class activities include the following for each mathematics topic:

  • Weekly meetings where students and instructor can discuss math topics, course progress, any questions, and just to get to know one another better
  • Topic Preview to review skills and include re-learning activities as needed
  • Short videos that present the topic and show how to solve example problems
  • Topic practice with feedback
  • Vocabulary practice
  • Problem solving and estimation practice

Throughout the course, students will actively participate in their own learning and will also benefit from personal feedback to help them continue to improve their mathematical skills.
