#### Can I do the Self-Paced Class at any time?

Yes, self-paced courses can begin and end at any time. Their progress depends on the student’s understanding of the topics and willingness to do the work.

#### Why take a live online class?

Students in a live class session can practice and answer questions with a Mr. D Math teacher during the classes. Students love the interaction and they also like knowing what assignments are due each week.

#### How do I know what is the right class for me?

The best way is to take a look at the demo area and see what your young person is ready for any topic.

#### Are there discounts?

Yes, there are discounts for returning students.

There are discounts for all siblings as well.

Contact our admin team for details.

#### What are extra help sessions and do all Mr. D Math students get to use them?

Extra help sessions are twice-a-week online meetings in which all students participating in Mr. D Math programs (live online and self-paced) can ask questions and receive help with challenging problems. It is like tutoring online and often includes more than one student, along with the teacher.

#### How do I start a Math Co-Op in my area?

#### What is your sequence of courses?

Pre-Algebra

Algebra I

Geometry

Algebra II

Pre-Calculus with Trigonometry

#### Why do you do Geometry before Algebra II?

We get asked this a lot. Some programs will do Algebra I, Algebra II and then Geometry. While that is a good model, we have found students are more prepared for a course like Algebra II which has more abstract Algebra than Algebra I by taking Geometry first.

We also find that students sharpen their Algebra I skills during Geometry as kind of Algebra used in Geometry comes from Algebra I which really supports students in preparing for Algebra II.

Mr. D also believes that Algebra I trains left brain thinking while Geometry trains right brain thinking which creates a whole brain thinking approach to Algebra II.

#### When should my young person take the SAT or ACT Bootcamp?

Students should plan to take the SAT or ACT Bootcamp 6 weeks before their test. We schedule our Bootcamps around the SAT and ACT test dates. Students should be in Geometry or higher before taking a Bootcamp. We recommend students have completed Geometry and be in Algebra II or higher.

#### How can students ask Mr. D Math teachers questions during the week?

The best thing for students is using the live extra help sessions. However, sometimes students want to have their questions answered right away. They can reach Mr. D Math teachers by email anytime. We attempt and are pretty good at getting back to students the same day they ask a question and often within an hour of their email.
