Math Basics 1: Multiplication (Live Class)

Math Basics is a two-part series.  These classes will help refresh your knowledge and build your confidence with math.  In this first class, we review the basics of multiplying numbers.  Multiplication is a quick way to add the same number many times.  This is a skill we all need in our math tool-kits!  We will talk about the Multiplication Table, and show you how easy it is to use.  We then give tips for multiplying small numbers, working our way up to larger numbers.

Math Basics 2: Division (Live Class)

Math Basics is a two-part series.  These classes will help refresh your knowledge and build your confidence with math.  In this second class, we review the basics of dividing numbers.  Just like multiplication and addition are related, division is a quick way to subtract the same number many times.  We will help you see this more clearly by working through examples together.  We will teach the steps for dividing small numbers, working our way up to larger numbers.

Math Boot Camp 1: Algebra 1 (Live Class)

Math Boot Camp is a four-part series.  These classes are designed for learners who are already working on math lessons with the LearningHUB.  If you are working on algebra and geometry to prepare for high school credits, college courses, ACE programming or the GED Test, you will benefit from these sessions.  They give a quick overview of the topics and you will be given homework activities so you can practise what you learned in class.    

In Part 1,  we look at order of operations with signed numbers, evaluating single variable expressions, and solving single variable equations.
 

Math Boot Camp 2: Algebra 2 (Live Class)

Math Boot Camp is a four-part series.  These classes are designed for learners who are already working on math lessons with the LearningHUB.  If you are working on algebra and geometry to prepare for high school credits, college courses, ACE programming or the GED Test, you will benefit from these sessions.  They give a quick overview of the topics and you will be given homework activities so you can practise what you learned in class. 

In Part 2, we look at equations with two variables, including coordinate plane geometry (plotting points, and solving for slope and intercept).

Math Boot Camp 3: Geometry 1 (Live Class)

Math Boot Camp is a four-part series.  These classes are designed for learners who are already working on math lessons with the LearningHUB.  If you are working on algebra and geometry to prepare for high school credits, college courses, ACE programming or the GED Test, you will benefit from these sessions.  They give a quick overview of the topics and you will be given homework activities so you can practise what you learned in class.

In Part 3, we look at perimeter and area, and volume of 2D and 3D shapes.

Math Boot Camp 4: Geometry 2 (Live Class)

Math Boot Camp is a four-part series.  These classes are designed for learners who are already working on math lessons with the LearningHUB.  If you are working on algebra and geometry to prepare for high school credits, college courses, ACE programming or the GED Test, you will benefit from these sessions.  They give a quick overview of the topics and you will be given homework activities so you can practise what you learned in class.

In Part 4, we look at lines and angles, including angle relationships (complementary and supplementary), and working with triangles, including types of triangles, area, and using the Pythagorean Theorem.  
 

Math Foundations 1: Decimals and Fractions (Live Class)

Math Foundations is a three-part series.   These are great classes to attend if you are already working on math lessons with the LearningHUB or with another classroom program.  These classes will help you complete your lessons with more confidence.  They give a quick overview of the topics and you will be given homework activities so you can practise what you learned in class.  

In this first class, we look at decimals and fractions.  These are two ways that we can represent numbers that are smaller than 1.  Together, we will break down what this really means and you will begin to learn steps for making calculations.  

Math Foundations 2: More Fractions (Live Class)

Math Foundations is a three-part series.   These are great classes to attend if you are already working on math lessons with the LearningHUB.  These classes will help you complete your lessons with more confidence.  They give a quick overview of the topics and you will be given homework activities so you can practise what you learned in class.  

In this second class, we go deeper with fractions!  We explain how to multiply and divide fractions by working through problems together.  

Math Foundations 3: Ratios, Proportions and Percents (Live Class)

Math Foundations is a three-part series.   These are great classes to attend if you are already working on math lessons with the LearningHUB.  These classes will help you complete your lessons with more confidence.  They give a quick overview of the topics and you will be given homework activities so you can practise what you learned in class.

In the third class, we explain how ratios and proportions show the relationship between numbers.  Knowing how to set up word problems using the ratios and proportions will make your math journey so much easier!  We finish up the class by looking at percents and how they are related to fractions and decimals.  
 

Steps to Success

This is a great course for learners who are new to the LearningHUB or online learning! In this course, we give you strategies and tips to set you up for success! You will identify your learning style and discover some ways to take advantage of your learning preferences.
