Math with Mrs. Fish
Veteran teacher and homeschool mom Laura Fischer is Mrs. Fish, and she loves math. Her goal is to provide the very best middle school math instruction for your child. She delivers her twice-weekly webinar-style classes for 6th and 7th graders LIVE (and recorded) and provides all the necessary curriculum materials your learner will need. 8th-grade curriculum and classes are coming soon!
Follows Saxon Math’s model of incremental and distributed instruction. Each concept is broken down into parts, which are introduced incrementally and mastered before learners are expected to master the entire concept. There are no chapters in the curriculum. Concepts from the five math strands (ratios and proportional relationships, the number system, expressions and equations, geometry, and statistics and probability) are distributed throughout the school year.
Approximately 85% of the daily assignment problems are review of previously learned material. It’s drill and THRILL as learners experience consistent success.
Each problem indicates from which lesson the material comes. If a learner can’t remember the steps, they can quickly access the corresponding notes.
Uses humor, memory devices, color-coding, and numbered steps for maximum retention of material.
Fill-in-the-blank notes provided for use during instruction so learners can focus on the learning and not the note-taking.
Aligned with the Common Core State Standards. There are concerns that parents and educators have with the Common Core and this curriculum addresses those concerns head-on. The primary benefit of using a curriculum aligned with the CCSS is that the state-mandated testing will cover what your child is being taught.
