Did you know that math can be fun? With play, movement and teambuilding, your student can learn to love math. Supplemental to your curriculum at home, no matter what math program you use, this class will help review the fundamentals of math with your tired, struggling or confused student. In class we will help students build the foundation to understand multiplication, factoring, division and take some mystery out of math. Using games and old fashioned, time-tested methods, Mrs. Small helps students review, drill and finally learn those multiplication facts. **$225/semester private pay ****($275/semester charter schools)**

Conquer any fraction frustration with the help of Mrs. Small. This class is geared for middle school students who want to build foundational math skills to better understand fractions, decimals, and percents; place value; order of operations; number lines; and more. Either using your own curriculum or Saxon Math 7/6, this class will help middle-school students gain a solid foundation of algebraic reasoning and geometric skills as they prepare to move on to higher-level math. Mrs. Small can also help eliminate math monsters by providing homework accountability to keep up with math lessons with either the syllabus provided or one completed by the parent.

The mystery is solved and X can be found with Michele Small. Using Saxon Algebra 1 we will learn in small steps to simplify, evaluate, add, subtract, multiply, and divide polynomial, rational, and radical expressions. Second semester we will factor polynomials; solve linear equations, linear systems, quadratic, rational, and radical equations and linear inequalities of one and two variables. Using Saxon’s spiral method, old concepts are reviewed and new concepts taught gradually to provide your student confidence as they move forward in math.
