Description

Inside this course you will gain access to over 70 problems worked out step by step, over 100 extra practice problems with solutions provided and over 15 quizzes to test your skills until you achieve 100% mastery. Also provided are detailed videos explaining each concept, process and essential definition.

Learning about quadratics can be tough.  Once you feel you mastered one type of problem you get stumped on the next.  This course is structured to not leave you behind in the dust.  I start off each section with basic definitions and processes you will need to know moving through the course.  I then present two types of videos to you for each skill.  First is the overview video where I explain the concept as a whole like a typical lecture in a classroom.  I then work through multiple examples showing you step by step how to complete different types of problems.  We both know watching someone do math is not the best way to learn.  You have to practice! Each section you are provided with multiple worksheets to practice your skills as well as the answer to check your answers.  Revert back to videos if you get stuck and forget how to solve the problems.  Once you feel you have a good grasp of your understanding it is time to take your quiz. There are multiple quizzes provided for each section. Take the quizzes as many times as you need to earn 100%.  

There is no pressure you are hear to learn. By taking this course you will not only gain a better understanding of quadratics but you will gain confidence to solve more problems on your own. That is why I created this course. I want students to no longer fear learning math or walking into their math class because they just don't understand.  Everyone can learn math.  Some it just takes a little longer, some just need a little boast and some need a course like I designed to guide them through the material. Heck once you complete this course, show your teacher! You deserve and A.  I am here for you and by joining this course you are now one of my students just as important to me as the 140 students I teach in the classroom during the school year. So please keep in touch, let me know how I am doing and if there is anything extra I can provide to assist you with your learning of quadratics.

Current Active High School Math Teacher

I am a high school that is on a mission to improve math education. I was that student that sat in the back of class frustrated with the boredom of class and the lack of understanding. I made the decision to become a math teacher to make a difference in others lives. I knew that with the struggles I had I could relate well to students that struggled with math. With a weak math background I set out to get a degree in mathematics. In was a difficult journey and I worked very hard not just to pass my math classes but to have an understanding of what I was doing. I learned a lot about myself, mathematics and what it takes to be successful in class through my time at college. I want to pass along my experience to you the student so that may have your own success with mathematics.
