North Carolina's Standard Course of Study defines the appropriate content standards for each grade level and each high school course to provide a uniform set of learning standards for every public school in North Carolina. These standards define what students know and should be able to do.
NC Math 1 provides students the opportunity to study concepts of algebra, geometry, functions, number and operations, statistics, and modeling throughout the course. These concepts include expressions in the real number system, creating and reasoning with equations and inequalities, interpreting and building simple functions, expressing geometric properties, and interpreting categorical and quantitative data.
North Carolina Standard Course of Study North Carolina Math 2 Standards for Mathematical Practice
1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
4. Model with mathematics.
5. Use appropriate tools strategically.
6. Attend to precision.
7. Look for and make use of structure.
8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

Complete review of the proceeding major topics/concepts.
Students work through problems by using published review books and College Board released MC, FRQs, and practice exams.
Nightly practice problems from released AP Exams, including both multiple- choice and free-response questions.
A complete practice exam (most recently released public exam) given over several class periods. This exam is graded just like the AP Exam using released scoring rubrics.

I DO. WE DO. YOU DO.
I usually start by showing the students strategy and working out examples. Then, we both do the problems together. I ask them what they have understood and have a discussion about the concepts. After that, I ask the students to solve the problems independently, which is my ultimate goal.
Although our course is designed to challenge most students, I am of the opinion that all students can learn this material. I will try my best to make sure the tutee understands the content and is able to apply the knowledge to real world scenarios. It is also the students’ responsibility to recognize what assistance is needed and how I can be of assistance to them.
A typical 1 hour session includes 40-50 mins of teaching via onenote presentations and demonstration and live problem solving, 10-15mins of classroom discussion, calculator or computer demonstration. Each session will be followed by equivalent hours of homework. i.e 1 hour class will have 1 hour homework.
Homework: Daily homework.
Quizzes: Most units, at least one quiz will be given.
Unit Test: A test will be given at the conclusion of each unit. These will be In class or Take home.
Final exam: The course will have two final exams 1 or 2 weeks apart. These exams are intended to give the students an indication of how well they understand the material.
The students' video should be ON while taking any in class tests, as well as the screen sharing turned on.
The parents are expected to proctor the ‘Take home’ tests.
TI84 Calculator and Desmos Online resources are allowed for most of the exam.
No cheating Please.
Use of a graphing calculator is strongly recommended for this class. If purchasing, any TI – 83 or TI-84 Plus (color edition optional) is appropriate. Purchase is NOT REQUIRED but encouraged.
Graphing calculators and Desmos will be used extensively in this course.
We highly recommend that you purchase your own for use in class and on homework. You will need that in college anyways.
Use of TI-83 and TI-84 calculators (all “types”) are recommended, demonstrated and taught. So if you purchase one… these are the calculators I can help you navigate.
What to bring the session:
You will need the following items:
A notebook ( take notes and solve problems.)
Previous session notes. (Onenote)
Ipad or a writing device.(Optional)
Session cancellation/rescheduling policy:
The session must be canceled or rescheduled at least 24 hours in advance.
Full session fees are charged otherwise.
Only Exceptions are Medical emergencies.
DAILY SESSIONS EXPECTATIONS:
Please login on time. If I am in another session, please wait for 5 mins then send me a reminder in the “remind” app.
Be organized and prepared. Bring all supplies i.e. previous class notes, formula sheet etc needed for class.
Finish the homework assigned in the previous class.
It is okay to not know, but it is not okay to not try.
We are in this together and I am here for you! Ask questions of me and I’ll ask questions of you. Let’s work as a team, interact, discuss, learn from each other, and have some fun. Students learn from teachers AND teachers learn from students.
I don’t want you to ever be afraid of asking questions or of making mistakes. All the sessions are 1:1 so it’s just you and me. Be honest and frank. You won’t know how much you know until you know how much you don’t know.
