Students in the this Self-Paced Mathematics program learn 6th grade math on their own at a flexible pace, within certain deadlines. Instead of regularly scheduled lectures live lectures, students study with the help of a variety of resources: pre-recorded video lectures, office hours and meetings with the teacher, and the provided workbook. The program lets students repeat homework with graded feedback until they have mastered the material. It also gives students explanations, sample problems, and videos. Once a student has demonstrated mastery of a set of materia, they can request the unit exam and if it is passed move on to the next set of material.
Which of Miss Crady’s Math classes are offered in the self-paced format?
For the 2018-2019 school year, 6th grade, 7th grade, PreAlgebra, and Algebra 1 will be offered in this self-paced format.
How is a Self-paced Math course different from a live course?
The main difference between self-paced and live courses with Miss Crady is working self-paced allows students to take one class over multiple semesters. Other differences include working on one’s own, no live lectures from the instructor and class discussion with peers, as well as study and time-management skills.
How is a Self-paced Math course the same as a lecture course?
Self-paced Math classes have the same number of units as a lecture class, and the same expectations of hours spent on the course each week. The courses cover the same mathematics material, and have the same Student Learning Outcomes, and course objectives for the mathematics content.
What types of students enroll in Self-paced Mathematics?
- Students that want the flexibility of not having a set class time
- Students that want to quickly move through the material
- Students that need to move slower than a traditional lecture class.
- Students that do not benefit from class discussions
Successful students in Self-paced Math are self-motivated, comfortable using computers and working online, not afraid to ask questions and have good time-management skills.
