**Learning and Innovation! **Focusing on learning and innovation, skills that separate learners who are ready for increasingly complex life and work environments from those who are not, this course prepares learners to be successful in life and work by focusing on (1) thinking creatively, working creatively with others, and implementing innovations, (2) reasoning effectively and using systems thinking, (3) making judgments and decisions, and (4) solving problems. Audience: Grades 6 – adult learners.

**Information, Media & Technology! **Focusing solely on Information, Media and Technology, learners develop their ability to (1) access, evaluate, use and manage information, (2) analyze media and create media products, and (3) apply technology effectively. Audience: Grades 6 – adult learners.

**That’s Life! **Because life requires far more than thinking skills and content knowledge, this course focuses on (1) flexibility and adaptability, (2) initiative and self direction, (3) social and cross cultural skills, (4) productivity and accountability, and (5) leadership and responsibility. Audience: Grades 6 – adult learners.** **

**NO!**Focusing solely on Numbers and Operations, this course develops the learners ability to (1) demonstrate an understanding of numbers, ways of representing numbers, relationships among numbers and number systems, (2) understand the meanings of operations, use operations, and understand how operations relate to each other, and (3) compute accurately and fluently and to make reasonable estimates. Audience: Grades 3-8.

**Mmmm!** Focusing solely on Measurement, this course develops the learners ability to (1) demonstrate an understanding of measurable attributes of objects and figures, and the units, systems and processes of measurement, and (2) apply appropriate techniques, tools and formulas to determine measurements. Audience: Grades 3-8.

**Gee!** Focusing solely on Geometry, this course develops the learners ability to (1) analyze characteristics and properties of two- and three- dimensional geometric shapes and demonstrate understanding of geometric relationships, (2) identify and/or apply concepts of transformations or symmetry, and (3) locate points or describe relationships using the coordinate plane. Audience: Grades 3-8.

**A!** Focusing solely on Algebraic Concepts, this course develops the learners ability to (1) demonstrate an understanding of patterns, relations, and functions, (2) represent and/or analyze mathematical situations using numbers, symbols, words, tables and/or graphs, (3) analyze change in various contexts, and (4) describe or use models to represent quantitative relationships. Audience: Grades 3-8.

**DAP!** Focusing solely on Data Analysis and Probability, this course develops the learners ability to (1) formulate and/or answer questions that can be addressed with data and/or collect, organize, display, interpret or analyze data, (2) select and/or use appropriate statistical methods to analyze data, (3) understand and/or apply basic concepts of probability or outcomes, and (4) develop and/or evaluate inferences and predictions or draw conclusions based on data or data displays. Audience: Grades 3-8..

**Standardize This!** This course increases the likelihood that a learner will score Proficient or Advanced on the 2015-2016 state standardized test by providing direct instruction in the concepts and skills that are inherent to the state standardized test. Audience: Learners in grades 3-8 who will be taking the state standardized test for the 1st time, or learners in grades 3-8 who did not perform at the Proficient level on the state standardized test in the previous year.

**Somewhat Standardized!** Audience: students who have a history of "barely" scoring Proficient on the state standardized test.

**Standardize That! **Audience: student who have a history of scoring Proficient on the state standardized test and can achieve at the Advanced level with targeted support.

**Accelerate! **This course enables the learner to pick up the pace of his/her mathematics course path by learning course content and (potentially) test out of the course with successful performance on a final exam. *The logistics of this course varies based on where the learner attends school during the regular school year. Full registration in Accelerate must be completed by May 31, 2016. Audience: Grades 2-12.

**Prerequisite Polish!** This course smoothes a learners transition from one mathematics class to the next by ensuring the learner has learned and retained the foundational concepts and skills in the preceding course that are essential to be built upon in the forthcoming course. For example: Smooth the transition from 2nd grade math to 3rd grade math, smooth the transition from Pre-Algebra to Algebra 1, polish the concepts/skills inherent to both Algebra and Geometry. Audience: Grades 2-12 students who did not do as well as they would have liked in the previous year's math class.

**Jump Start! **This course leads the learner to outperform his/her peers by exposing the learner to the concepts and skills that are inherent to the learners’ forthcoming mathematics class. Audience: Student in Grades 2-12 who performed well in the previous year's math class.

**Tutor Training:** This course enables learners to effectively and efficiently tutor a less knowing other by addressing the principles of teaching and learning. Audience: Anyone who intends to tutor a less knowing other.

**HS 2: **This course enhances a more knowing others’ ability to effectively and efficiently home school children with ease by building his/her teaching and learning skills as well as broadening his/her teaching resource collection. Audience: Anyone who is interested in homeschooling their child/children.

**S3: **This course develops students into super star students by teaching them how to learn. Learners develop their ability to (1) tap into their own strengths, (2) take notes effectively, (3) avoid missing out on what’s being taught in class, (4) prioritize homework and projects, and (5) approach tests with focus, preparation and confidence. Audience: Grades 6 – 12 who could benefit from learning how to learn.
