Students always want to know "when will we ever use this!" Grocery store mathematics is a fresh way to teach mathematics in the real world, also known as consumer math or home economics. This is a complete semester in which students will learn how to use mathematics to stay under budget while shopping. In this class students will get to go shopping to practice their real world skills.
The classes in this series are:
Students should know how to add and subtract whole numbers.
This course includes hands-on, real learning activities. Parents and students will be asked to determine a budget for grocery shopping, make a simple list and go to the grocery store with their family to practice what was learned.

My name is Andrea Hall and I am a certified teacher and homeschool educator. I have been teaching for over 13 years both in the traditional classroom as well as online and tutoring for over 17 years. I taught all levels of math as well as study skills. I left the traditional classroom in 2010 to homeschool my three kids teaching all subjects from reading to science to math. During that time I served as a Subject Matter Expert (SME) for online schools as well as designed an ACT Test Preparation program.
An interesting fact was that not only am I an analytical thinker but I am also an artist. My work has been display in an exhibit (this was before children).
I love teaching Mathematics, Science, English, History, Art, Study Skills and Standardized Test Preparation. I pretty much love teaching and I love learning.
My students describe me as "Corny but Cool". I look forward to tutoring you!
