3 NEW CLASSES that have been added to their Fall Enrichment Schedule!

·        Math-U-See Pre-Algebra with Cheri Friesz

·        Math-U-See Algebra 1 with Cheri Friesz

·        3D Animation 1 - Julie Quinn, M. Ed.

 

Here are the class descriptions:

Math-U-See Pre-Algebra

·        Time: Wednesday 10:10-11:30

Have you reached the point where you now depend on a teacher manual to check your student’s math work? Have you had to relearn everything right along with them? Do you shudder at the words “coefficient”, “polynomial” and “algebraic equation”? If you’re spread thin and are looking for a workable solution to your student’s upper level math courses, Math-U-See is a logical choice. Using visual aids and explaining WHY we do what we do in solving math equations is one of the benefits of Demme’s plan for higher mathematics. Each lesson teaches a new concept in manageable portions while revisiting prior lessons to keep the concepts fresh in mind. Practical applications for daily life will be an important area of focus. Along with learning new concepts in each class period, the students will have plenty of time for questions and individual help on new concepts. For questions outside of class, students will be able to access a facebook page where they will receive help on concepts with which they are struggling. One-on-one tutoring will also be available to those that require this service on an as-needed basis at an additional tuition rate. An honors component is also available.

Materials Needed:

·        MUS Pre-Algebra Student Pack 2009 Edition (includes Student Workbook and Tests)

·        Integer Block Kit (133 piece block set)

·        Algebra/Decimal Inserts

·        3-ring binder (2 inch)

·        4 tab dividers

·        Loose-leaf paper Pencils

Teacher Credentials: Cheri has her B.A. in Elementary Education with a mathematics certification from Grand View University in Des Moines, Iowa. Prior to homeschooling she taught math, including Pre-Algebra and Algebra I, in the public school district. She has homeschooled her own four children, which included the Math-U- See curriculum, for the past 18 years. Cheri has a love for math that she realizes not everyone shares, but hopes to instill in her students.

This course is designed for the creative student who loves a challenge. If your student would enjoy learning how to create the objects they see in their favorite video game or understand how the latest animated movie was developed, this is the class that will pull back the curtain on computer animation.

Animation 1 will provide a broad overview of the basic principles of animation while creating amazing 3D projects. Students will learn the basics of modeling, lighting, materials, key frame animation, rigging, cameras, and rendering.

Technology Requirements: Computers and software provided

 

Instructor: Ms. Julie Quinn, M. Ed.

The last sixteen years of my life have been spent teaching computer animation and digital art. It is my passion to show students how to create something they could previously only imagine. I have worked in public education and provided classes on Saturdays to students from 8 – 14 who were interested in exploring the digital world of animation.

My Master of Arts degree is from Michigan State in Curriculum & Teaching. I am also a certified teacher in North Carolina. It is a joy to be able to provide these courses in an environment where individualized learning is celebrated.
