(other slot is Wed.@1-2:20pm) This one-year course is a review and extension of the concepts taught in Algebra 1. You will gain a deeper insight into Mathematics and get to practice using your new skills with lots of examples and questions. In Algebra 2 you play with letters, numbers, and symbols and get to solve equations to find answers. Once you learn some of the “tricks”, it can be a fun challenge to figure out how to use your skills in solving each “puzzle”. With your new skills you will be able to put together equations so you can find good quality solutions to many tricky real-world situations. You will learn about Polynomials, Inequalities, many types of Functions, and how to solve them. You will develop advanced algebra skills such as graphing, analyzing and interpreting functions such as polynomial, rational and exponential. Algebra I skills are used throughout this course.

High School English Literature & Composition-Intermediate-Advanced -level 2 - (year-long) Fall '23TueLizzie Scott09/05 - 01/1601:00 PM - 03:50 PM14 & upOpenIn this Zoom-friendly, A-G-aligned class, students will build on what was learned in Level 1 of this course (or their current abilities if they’ve already taken writing courses that have covered concepts like the five-paragraph essay and literary analysis) and expand their ability to write papers and analyze literature. The books covered in this course change from one year to the next and students are given specific feedback to expand their writing abilities so that this course can be repeated to build skills and prepare for English 101. Learning to analyze and discuss literature is an important skill for high school students, whether they are fans of reading or reluctant readers. This class is designed to help students deepen their abilities in this area, and have a good time doing it! It is for students who want to connect with what they read, further develop their writing skills, and learn more about literature at the same time.Visit our staff page for instructor bios: https://learnbeyondthebook.com/our-team/$799 (Includes all registration fees and materials)16 weeks170 minutes per classLBTB Core Classes - High SchoolEnglish Language ArtsONLOSemester class

One thing that many students find they like is that geometry is less abstract and more visual than algebra – easier to 'see' what is going on in the problems. For some of this class we will focus on what people usually picture when they think of geometry: topics like area, perimeter and volume, measuring angles, and using triangles to find the heights of tree and buildings. You know, stuff you can use in the real world out there. About 2/3 of the class covers problems that are not designed to necessarily be directly usable in the real world, but are instead exercises so students can explore and practice the process of solving problems in general. We will spend a significant amount of time on proofs and logic, which helps students consider how we know the things we know, and how to build on knowledge we’ve learned before .....Visit our staff page for instructor bios: https://learnbeyondthebook.com/our-team/$395 (Includes all registration fees and materials)16 weeks80 minutes per classLBTB Core Classes - High SchoolMathONLOSemester class

Hands-on Math—Multiplication/Division and Fractions - new & continuing students welcome - Fall '23TueAndrea Coane09/05 - 01/1609:30 AM - 10:50 AM08 & upOpenHands-On Math builds a knowledge of multiplication, division, and fractions based on an understanding of the underlying principles involved, rather than rote memorization of tables. We begin the class with a review of foundational principles necessary to understanding multiplication like skip counting, doubling, halving, and place value. We then move on to working with arrays and area models as concrete representations of both multiplication and division simultaneously, thus linking them right from the start and avoiding an unnatural separation of the two concepts. This naturally leads us to learning the “key” multiplication facts (2s, 5s, and 10s) so that we may build on this foundation and reason our way toward learning the remaining multiplication and division fact families. After a strong foundation is laid through our work with multiplication and division, we will then move on to fractions.

Literature Analysis & Discussions for Teens - Fall '23TueLizzie Scott09/05 - 01/2204:00 PM - 05:20 PM13 & upOpenThere’s nothing like a good book to get us thinking about life and our place in it! In fact, research shows that reading literary fiction can build empathy and expand the ways in which we are able to understand others, which is vital for anyone, but particularly valuable for high school students. Discussing what we read can make a significant difference in how we understand and enjoy literature. For this reason, book clubs are a cultural mainstay, and this course is designed with that in mind. Here, students can read, discuss, deepen their knowledge of literary devices, and expand their understanding of others, and have fun in the process. This course is designed for high school students who are not in the “A-G track” at a charter school but would like an engaging, educational, and enjoyable way to explore language arts. This course will offer instruction, games, and activities that explore literature concepts such as characterization, foreshadowing, story arc, suspense-building etc.Visit our staff page for instructor bios: https://learnbeyondthebook.com/our-team/$395 (Includes all registration fees and materials)16 weeks80 minutes per classLBTB Core Classes - K-8English Language ArtsONLO

The books covered in this course change from one year to the next and students are given specific feedback to expand their writing abilities so that this course can be repeated to build skills and prepare for English 101. Learning to analyze and discuss literature is an important skill for high school students, whether they are fans of reading or reluctant readers. This class is designed to help students deepen their abilities in this area, and have a good time doing it! It is for students who want to connect with what they read, further develop their writing skills, and learn more about literature at the same time.Visit our staff page for instructor bios: https://learnbeyondthebook.com/our-team/$799 (Includes all registration fees and materials)16 weeks170 minutes per classLBTB Core Classes - High SchoolEnglish Language ArtsONLOSemester class

One thing that many students find they like is that geometry is less abstract and more visual than algebra – easier to 'see' what is going on in the problems. For some of this class we will focus on what people usually picture when they think of geometry: topics like area, perimeter and volume, measuring angles, and using triangles to find the heights of tree and buildings. You know, stuff you can use in the real world out there. About 2/3 of the class covers problems that are not designed to necessarily be directly usable in the real world, but are instead exercises so students can explore and practice the process of solving problems in general. We will spend a significant amount of time on proofs and logic, which helps students consider how we know the things we know, and how to build on knowledge we’ve learned before .....Visit our staff page for instructor bios: https://learnbeyondthebook.com/our-team/$395 (Includes all registration fees and materials)16 weeks80 minutes per classLBTB Core Classes - High SchoolMathONLOSemester class

Hands-on Math—Multiplication/Division and Fractions - new & continuing students welcome - Fall '23TueAndrea Coane09/05 - 01/1609:30 AM - 10:50 AM08 & upOpenHands-On Math builds a knowledge of multiplication, division, and fractions based on an understanding of the underlying principles involved, rather than rote memorization of tables. We begin the class with a review of foundational principles necessary to understanding multiplication like skip counting, doubling, halving, and place value. We then move on to working with arrays and area models as concrete representations of both multiplication and division simultaneously, thus linking them right from the start and avoiding an unnatural separation of the two concepts. This naturally leads us to learning the “key” multiplication facts (2s, 5s, and 10s) so that we may build on this foundation and reason our way toward learning the remaining multiplication and division fact families. After a strong foundation is laid through our work with multiplication and division, we will then move on to fractions.

Literature Analysis & Discussions for Teens - Fall '23TueLizzie Scott09/05 - 01/2204:00 PM - 05:20 PM13 & upOpenThere’s nothing like a good book to get us thinking about life and our place in it! In fact, research shows that reading literary fiction can build empathy and expand the ways in which we are able to understand others, which is vital for anyone, but particularly valuable for high school students. Discussing what we read can make a significant difference in how we understand and enjoy literature. For this reason, book clubs are a cultural mainstay, and this course is designed with that in mind. Here, students can read, discuss, deepen their knowledge of literary devices, and expand their understanding of others, and have fun in the process. This course is designed for high school students who are not in the “A-G track” at a charter school but would like an engaging, educational, and enjoyable way to explore language arts. This course will offer instruction, games, and activities that explore literature concepts such as characterization, foreshadowing, story arc, suspense-building etc.Visit our staff page for instructor bios: https://learnbeyondthebook.com/our-team/$395 (Includes all registration fees and materials)16 weeks80 minutes per classLBTB Core Classes - K-8English Language ArtsONLO

This class will focus on mastering basic skills such as plain knitting, casting on, and casting off, and will introduce purling.

You will gain a deeper insight into Mathematics and get to practice using your new skills with lots of examples and questions. In Algebra 2 you play with letters, numbers, and symbols and get to solve equations to find answers. Once you learn some of the “tricks”, it can be a fun challenge to figure out how to use your skills in solving each “puzzle”. With your new skills you will be able to put together equations so you can find good quality solutions to many tricky real-world situations. You will learn about Polynomials, Inequalities, many types of Functions, and how to solve them. You will develop advanced algebra skills such as graphing, analyzing and interpreting functions such as polynomial, rational and exponential. Algebra I skills are used throughout this course.

High School English Literature & Composition-Intermediate-Advanced -level 2 - (year-long) Fall '23TueLizzie Scott09/05 - 01/1601:00 PM - 03:50 PM14 & upOpenIn this Zoom-friendly, A-G-aligned class, students will build on what was learned in Level 1 of this course (or their current abilities if they’ve already taken writing courses that have covered concepts like the five-paragraph essay and literary analysis) and expand their ability to write papers and analyze literature. The books covered in this course change from one year to the next and students are given specific feedback to expand their writing abilities so that this course can be repeated to build skills and prepare for English 101. Learning to analyze and discuss literature is an important skill for high school students, whether they are fans of reading or reluctant readers. This class is designed to help students deepen their abilities in this area, and have a good time doing it! It is for students who want to connect with what they read, further develop their writing skills, and learn more about literature at the same time.Visit our staff page for instructor bios: https://learnbeyondthebook.com/our-team/$799 (Includes all registration fees and materials)16 weeks170 minutes per classLBTB Core Classes - High SchoolEnglish Language ArtsONLOSemester class
High School Geometry (year-long course) - Fall '23ThuMichael Marchesan09/07 - 01/1801:00 PM - 02:20 PM14 & upOpenIn this yearlong class we will focus on understanding plane and space relationships. One thing that many students find they like is that geometry is less abstract and more visual than algebra – easier to 'see' what is going on in the problems. For some of this class we will focus on what people usually picture when they think of geometry: topics like area, perimeter and volume, measuring angles, and using triangles to find the heights of tree and buildings. You know, stuff you can use in the real world out there. About 2/3 of the class covers problems that are not designed to necessarily be directly usable in the real world, but are instead exercises so students can explore and practice the process of solving problems in general. We will spend a significant amount of time on proofs and logic, which helps students consider how we know the things we know, and how to build on knowledge we’ve learned before .....Visit our staff page for instructor bios: https://learnbeyondthebook.com/our-team/$395 (Includes all registration fees and materials)16 weeks80 minutes per classLBTB Core Classes - High SchoolMathONLOSemester class

Hands-on Math—Multiplication/Division and Fractions - new & continuing students welcome - Fall '23TueAndrea Coane09/05 - 01/1609:30 AM - 10:50 AM08 & upOpenHands-On Math builds a knowledge of multiplication, division, and fractions based on an understanding of the underlying principles involved, rather than rote memorization of tables. We begin the class with a review of foundational principles necessary to understanding multiplication like skip counting, doubling, halving, and place value. We then move on to working with arrays and area models as concrete representations of both multiplication and division simultaneously, thus linking them right from the start and avoiding an unnatural separation of the two concepts. This naturally leads us to learning the “key” multiplication facts (2s, 5s, and 10s) so that we may build on this foundation and reason our way toward learning the remaining multiplication and division fact families. After a strong foundation is laid through our work with multiplication and division, we will then move on to fractions.

Literature Analysis & Discussions for Teens - Fall '23TueLizzie Scott09/05 - 01/2204:00 PM - 05:20 PM13 & upOpenThere’s nothing like a good book to get us thinking about life and our place in it! In fact, research shows that reading literary fiction can build empathy and expand the ways in which we are able to understand others, which is vital for anyone, but particularly valuable for high school students. Discussing what we read can make a significant difference in how we understand and enjoy literature. For this reason, book clubs are a cultural mainstay, and this course is designed with that in mind. Here, students can read, discuss, deepen their knowledge of literary devices, and expand their understanding of others, and have fun in the process. This course is designed for high school students who are not in the “A-G track” at a charter school but would like an engaging, educational, and enjoyable way to explore language arts. This course will offer instruction, games, and activities that explore literature concepts such as characterization, foreshadowing, story arc, suspense-building etc.Visit our staff page for instructor bios: https://learnbeyondthebook.com/our-team/$395 (Includes all registration fees and materials)16 weeks80 minutes per classLBTB Core Classes - K-8English Language ArtsONLO

(other slot is Wed.@1-2:20pm) This one-year course is a review and extension of the concepts taught in Algebra 1. You will gain a deeper insight into Mathematics and get to practice using your new skills with lots of examples and questions. In Algebra 2 you play with letters, numbers, and symbols and get to solve equations to find answers. Once you learn some of the “tricks”, it can be a fun challenge to figure out how to use your skills in solving each “puzzle”. With your new skills you will be able to put together equations so you can find good quality solutions to many tricky real-world situations. You will learn about Polynomials, Inequalities, many types of Functions, and how to solve them. You will develop advanced algebra skills such as graphing, analyzing and interpreting functions such as polynomial, rational and exponential. Algebra I skills are used throughout this course.

The books covered in this course change from one year to the next and students are given specific feedback to expand their writing abilities so that this course can be repeated to build skills and prepare for English 101. Learning to analyze and discuss literature is an important skill for high school students, whether they are fans of reading or reluctant readers. This class is designed to help students deepen their abilities in this area, and have a good time doing it! It is for students who want to connect with what they read, further develop their writing skills, and learn more about literature at the same time.Visit our staff page for instructor bios: https://learnbeyondthebook.com/our-team/$799 (Includes all registration fees and materials)16 weeks170 minutes per classLBTB Core Classes - High SchoolEnglish Language ArtsONLOSemester class

One thing that many students find they like is that geometry is less abstract and more visual than algebra – easier to 'see' what is going on in the problems. For some of this class we will focus on what people usually picture when they think of geometry: topics like area, perimeter and volume, measuring angles, and using triangles to find the heights of tree and buildings. You know, stuff you can use in the real world out there. About 2/3 of the class covers problems that are not designed to necessarily be directly usable in the real world, but are instead exercises so students can explore and practice the process of solving problems in general. We will spend a significant amount of time on proofs and logic, which helps students consider how we know the things we know, and how to build on knowledge we’ve learned before .....Visit our staff page for instructor bios: https://learnbeyondthebook.com/our-team/$395 (Includes all registration fees and materials)16 weeks80 minutes per classLBTB Core Classes - High SchoolMathONLOSemester class

Hands-on Math—Multiplication/Division and Fractions - new & continuing students welcome - Fall '23TueAndrea Coane09/05 - 01/1609:30 AM - 10:50 AM08 & upOpenHands-On Math builds a knowledge of multiplication, division, and fractions based on an understanding of the underlying principles involved, rather than rote memorization of tables. We begin the class with a review of foundational principles necessary to understanding multiplication like skip counting, doubling, halving, and place value. We then move on to working with arrays and area models as concrete representations of both multiplication and division simultaneously, thus linking them right from the start and avoiding an unnatural separation of the two concepts. This naturally leads us to learning the “key” multiplication facts (2s, 5s, and 10s) so that we may build on this foundation and reason our way toward learning the remaining multiplication and division fact families. After a strong foundation is laid through our work with multiplication and division, we will then move on to fractions.

Literature Analysis & Discussions for Teens - Fall '23TueLizzie Scott09/05 - 01/2204:00 PM - 05:20 PM13 & upOpenThere’s nothing like a good book to get us thinking about life and our place in it! In fact, research shows that reading literary fiction can build empathy and expand the ways in which we are able to understand others, which is vital for anyone, but particularly valuable for high school students. Discussing what we read can make a significant difference in how we understand and enjoy literature. For this reason, book clubs are a cultural mainstay, and this course is designed with that in mind. Here, students can read, discuss, deepen their knowledge of literary devices, and expand their understanding of others, and have fun in the process. This course is designed for high school students who are not in the “A-G track” at a charter school but would like an engaging, educational, and enjoyable way to explore language arts. This course will offer instruction, games, and activities that explore literature concepts such as characterization, foreshadowing, story arc, suspense-building etc.Visit our staff page for instructor bios: https://learnbeyondthebook.com/our-team/$395 (Includes all registration fees and materials)16 weeks80 minutes per classLBTB Core Classes - K-8English Language ArtsONLO
