Unit 7 Class Summary, HW, and Reminders – 06.03.20
Unit 7 Homework:
- Pg. 17-22 (found at the end of Unit 7)
This week’s unit focused on Roots/Radicals and Irrational Numbers. We started by classifying numbers (real, rational, whole, etc) and looking at what happens when operations are performed on rational and irrational numbers. We looked at fractional exponents, and how to multiply and divide radicals. We also simplified radicals, and found roots of variables. The students found this unit to be a mix of review and new content. They did a great job, and will benefit from continued practice.

Unit 6 Class Summary, HW, and Reminders – 05.27.20
Unit 6 Homework:
- Pg. 12-14 (found at the end of Unit 6)
In this week’s class, we reviewed everything dealing with quadratic equations. We learned how to find various features of quadratic equations (the axis of symmetry, the vertices, the roots, and more). We also practiced “completing the square” to convert from standard form into vertex form. Lastly, we learned how to use the Quadratic Formula (which the students will be expected to memorize in high school).
This week’s homework is on pages 12-14 in this week’s packet (it should say “Unit 6: Quadratic Functions” on the first page!).

Unit 5 Class Summary, HW, and Reminders – 05.19.20
Unit 5 Homework:
- Pg. 13-18 (found at the end of Unit 5)
This week’s class covered Exponents and Exponential Functions. We started by reviewing all of the exponent rules, and then moved on to scientific notation. While the students had already learned these two topics previously, they benefited from practice as they were quite rusty. Things got trickier when we progressed to exponential functions, which was a topic that was unfamiliar to the class. In doing their homework, the students will get to practice their understanding of exponential functions, both graphically, and in word problems dealing with real-world situations.

The first class of our 8-week Algebra 1 review course was a great success! In Unit 1, we covered some basic properties of Algebra, such as Associative, Equality, and Identity properties. The students knew some of them well (Commutative, Distributive, and Additive Inverse) but definitely had a trickier time with others. These properties are of vital importance in both Geometry and Algebra 2, so this was definitely time well spent.
Next, the class reviewed Operations with Polynomials. Again, students had a basic familiarity with the concept, but deeper work showed that more practice will be very valuable in getting them ready for 9th grade.

- Once recognized, unmute themselves to ask the question
Welcome! – 4.17.20
We have a great class planned, and can’t wait to meet everyone next week! Your family has taken an important step to ensure that your student stays ahead of the curve on Algebra I content. Together, we will build the confidence and the competencies needed for this course and beyond!
The Tutorverse Team is here to provide the framework, instruction, and support needed to make this the rewarding experience it’s designed to be. We also need your help to make this a success. You can help us help you by making a commitment to show up for each and every class, diligently complete the homework, and actively participate in class (ask questions!).
Important information is included below, so please read it carefully, and bookmark this page for easy access!
When is class?
Check the calendar above! Each online class session runs from 4:00-5:30 PM on Tuesdays.
What if I’m late? What do I do?
If you are running late, please sign into the online class session using the login link and login password above as soon as you can. Feel free to chat the host of the meeting to jump right into the lesson. We can help catch you up to speed!
What do I need to bring?
Each week, please have the following materials ready:
- Course Pages (linked above)
- Pencils and an eraser
- a charged laptop or desktop computer with internet connectivity and audio output (speakers, headphones, etc)
- Login link (found above)
- Login password (found above)
What if I need to miss a class?
Let us know as soon as you know that you need to miss class. This will allow us enough time to let the instructor know and to help you develop a plan to study the missed material! In most cases, we will have a video recording of the class session that we can make available to you so you can get the notes and instruction.
Is there homework?
Of course! Showing up for class is important, but just coming to class won’t help. Homework is an opportunity to reinforce the skills we learn in class. Remember: it’s not just about getting the homework done; it’s about doing it right and implementing problem solving strategies!
Parents: we need your help to make sure that students are doing their homework!
Homework can be found at the end of each unit (linked above).
What happens if a student’s conduct has a negative effect on the learning environment?
A safe, conducive learning environment is paramount. The instructor has the capability to remove a participant from the online class session if necessary. Please review our class policies to learn more.
What if I still need help?
No problem! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for support.
