Math Fact Foundations: Multiplication Math Fact Foundations: Multiplication - Does your child lack confidence in his or her mathematical ability? It might be because your child has not mastered basic math facts! Students who know their math facts can move confidently through other, higher levels of math. Basic math facts are to arithmetic as phonics are to reading! Math facts are the building blocks needed to be successful in multi-digit multiplication, long division, fractions, decimals, pre-algebra, and beyond! Fluent math facts help a student keep up in math and reduce frequent arithmetic errors.
Learning math facts for life does not have to be tedious drudgery! Flash cards and repetitive worksheets don't work for everyone, and a student won't always be able to use a calculator. This class will focus on strategies and introduce games that improve a student's number sense and fact fluency. Techniques such as counting up, tens partners, adding nine, and more will be explicitly modeled and reinforced in class. Students will play make-and-take math games in class like SLAP!, U-Know, and more that they will also be expected to practice at home. This class will provide an engaging, low-pressure environment and focus on individual skill development.
Topics in this Series: Addition (Quarter 1); Subtraction (Quarter 2); Multiplication (Quarter 3), and Division (Quarter 4).Lab/Supply Fee: A class fee of $5.00 is due payable to the instructor on the first day of class for the make-and-take games and materials.

Math Lab (Wed, Q3) Math Lab (Wed, Q3) - Math Lab is a tutoring center where students can go for weekly help on math homework! In Math Lab, homeschooled students bring the math homework they are assigned- whether from a Compass math class, an online math program, or material taught at home. Help is available for all topics from middle school (6th-8th grade) math through Algebra I, encompassing concepts such as: number lines, integers, negative numbers, fractions, decimals, percentages, factoring, exponents, roots, order of operations, inequalities, coordinate plane, working with variables, solving equations, and word problems.
Students will be expected to come to Math Lab with a current math assignment including any textbook, workbook, or worksheets and a pencil. They will work independently until they have a question, reach a stumbling block, or need clarification on a concept or computation. The Math Lab tutor will then work with them to check answers, remind them of a technique, or demonstrate a different way to solve the problem. Sometimes just hearing it from someone else will help a concept "click"!
An experienced Compass math instructor will oversee the Math Lab and will be circling the room and continually checking in with students. The tutor will not prepare or deliver structured lessons, but will be giving on-the-spot support/guidance as needed and may suggest additional practice to reinforce a concept. Math Lab students will receive discounts on subscriptions to IXL Math, on an online, learning platform. See Compass Store for details on IXL subscriptions.
