Maths with Karolmaths


Karol’s Maths class will run weekly out of the North Shore YMCA to coincide with the many other HASCA and homeschool activities happening there each week! (See ‘What’s On’.)


PROGRAMME FOR TERM TWO 2019:
QUICK RECALL OF BASIC ADDITION FACTS 

Classes are run by ex-Maths teacher and homeschooling mum, Karol Goodman.

Karol is passionate about helping homeschoolers have lots of fun while mastering their basic facts as a foundation to all mathematics. 

What do space ships, cars, animals and quick addition have in common? Come along and find out!

This course provides resources your kids will potentially be asking you to use with them for years.

This course is tailored for a very specific group of kids and parents as described below.

Parents: 
Are you willing to attend a half hour session with your kids for 7 weeks?

Would you commit to putting 10-15 minutes, 4 days a week over 7 weeks aside to spend with your child repeating the fun activities we do in class?

The age range for kids is a rough guide, from 5-8 years, because although this is technically Year level 1 addition, due to dyslexia and many other factors, many teens still add by counting-on.  Karol is happy to help students of any age dealing with such challenges.

What’s more important than age or level, is that the kids are comfortable working within a class of this approximate age range and they fit the following specific criteria:

– They don’t know their basic addition facts involving sums under 20.
i.e. Do they still count on their fingers, out loud or slowly in their heads without knowing the facts by heart?

– Can they recognise, identify and write numbers 1-20 easily, quickly and legibly?

If the answers are not yes to the above four questions, please don’t register in this class, but either contact Karol about math or keep an eye out for future class options. 

Parents have expressed interest in a number of different math classes, but this is the foundational one to start things off and more will possibly added in the future.

There are some basic materials needed at home that most families will already have. A list with full class details will be sent once expressions of interest/registrations have been received.
