Practical Math is for students who have high levels of math anxiety and find performing simple, routine computations an insurmountable challenge. We work carefully to find a solid skill base and correct misunderstandings.
In this course, mathematical concepts will be taught with an emphasis on real-world applications. Students will learn to think abstractly about situations they encounter in life so that they can understand patterns and trends, and then predict future outcomes.
Teaching methods used in this course include direct instruction and coaching in small groups, online skills development (in class and outside of class), and hands-on learning. Assessment methods include workbook exercises, traditional quizzes and testing, and proficiency rubrics linked to online skills measurements.
Resources used in this course include workbooks published by Learning Express, an online skills development platform called IXL, graphing calculators and mathematical manipulatives (e.g., Algebra Tiles).
This course meets Mon, Wed, and Fri.
This course is held at WCTC in room Math Classroom.
