This course has had an update! Little things have changed here and there, but the biggest change involved some rearranging of lessons. If you are on Days 49 – 72, you will want to use the old format and then come back here to avoid missing anything or having a repeated lesson.
Please review the FAQs and contact us if you find a problem with a link.
Course Description: Students will explore math in the following areas: numbers, geometry, measurement, algebra, and probability. Students will grow in their understanding of the relationship between numbers and the world. Topics include: irrational numbers, volume and surface area. Students will be learning to construct angles and segments using a straight edge and compass. They will study different transformations and practice finding similar figures. Students will learn the concept of variables and algebraic expressions. They will solve one and twostep equations. Finally, they will explore probability and variation creating, analyzing and visualizing data sets.

How to Use:
 PLEASE carefully read and follow your directions each day. We’re getting a lot of comments about things not working on sites, but they are things I don’t ask you to use.
 Sometimes you may be smarter than the computer. If you get an answer marked wrong, but you are sure you are right, you can write to us to check. Then, we can make a note of it for other students taking the course after you.
 This is a combination of Master Math and GA Virtual Learning (with some extras thrown in). On the GA site you will click on the tab for the page numbers I list. On Master Math you will watch the video and take the quiz.
 If it says “Quiz Group” or “Test Group” but you don’t see the quiz or test, click on those words and it should appear.
 I have counted that there are 161 assignments. You have 180 days. These extra days may be taken up with worksheets from the Master Math pages. You will see my direction to complete a worksheet if you get more than one wrong on your quiz. Basically you are doing one lesson a day. If you don’t have that extra work to do, I have included fun activities and games for you to do on the extra days.
 Every day do a little review. You’ll go to this practice page and each day go to the next on the list unless you didn’t do well, then try the same one again. Try to do five. I want to keep these things fresh for you. You won’t use them all the time, but you will need them again! Log in to keep track of what you are on. If it’s remembering what you did before, use a new email address, or delete your account through Settings and resign up.

Today you will investigate factors geometrically! For this project, you’ll be asked to complete the worksheet. The first two have been completed for you. You can use blocks or postit notes as manipulatives for creating the factor visuals. Draw the number of squares listed. Draw them in each rectangular or square shape possible. The length of sides of those shapes are your factors. (For instance, for four squares you can line them up in a row and the sides would be 1 and 4, or you could stack them in a square and the side lengths would be 2 and 2. The factors would be 1, 2, and 4.)
