Course Description

 

The four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) lay a framework for all other strands of mathematics. Therefore, it is essential for students to approach these types of math problems with confidence.

In this seven-week mini-course, I will provide students with a toolkit of strategies they can use when they confront an addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division problem. In this course students will practice:

  • addition with whole numbers
  • subtracting across zeros
  • four digits by one digit multiplication
  • two-digits by two-digits multiplication
  • long division
  • solving four operation word problems

By the end of this course:

  1. Student will be able to subtract across zeros.
  2. Students will be able to multiply four digits by one-digit problems.
  3. Students will be able to multiply two digits by two digits problems.
  4. Students will be able to divide four digits by one-digit problems.

Course Structure

I will use a pre-and-post-assessment to measure student’s growth from the beginning of the course to the end. There will be weekly mini-checks (about 5 questions) to measure student’s understanding of key concepts. We will also have independent activities as an alternative measure, and use math games and interactive task cards to keep students engaged.

Who should enroll?

4th-6th grade students

Technology Requirements

  • High speed, broadband Internet
  • Sound card and microphone (for live sessions)
  • Streaming video capabilities to watch recorded lectures

Evaluation and Feedback

I provide weekly student feedback on each mini-check, and provide additional resources for extra practice.

Instructor Bio

Kristen (Bell) Teaman

Kristen Teaman was homeschooled K–12. She received her B.S. in Elementary Education from Millersville University, followed by an  M.Ed. in Literacy and Reading Specialist certification from Penn State University.  Through her studies, she has gleaned multiple research-based strategies to help students develop as both readers and writers. Currently she is a 4th grade teacher at her local public school, where she has taught for eleven years. She has also taught in a variety of small group and whole group settings whether through her district or other programs. She has instructed students ranging from kindergarten to sixth grade in both literacy and mathematics.

Kristen struggled in academics through her elementary years and knows what it is to fight to learn (her story is featured in her mother best-selling book The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling). She uses this experience to reach each of her students at their varied levels and to remind them that the goal is growth. Her desire is to help each student learn to love reading and mathematics. In her free time, you can find her cheering on her beloved Penn State Nittany Lions or the Pittsburgh Steelers, enjoying the outdoors, or running in her surrounding hills.
