Who would benefit from an "At My Pace" (AMP) course:
Students who excel at working independently.
Students who are highly self-motivated.
Students who need to repeat a semester of a subject.
Students who successfully completed a subject but are not confident they are well prepared for the next subject.
Students who are seeking to gain multiple credits in one academic year.
Students whose family's schedule does not allow the student to maintain a consistent pace throughout the semester.
Students whose schedule does not allow the student to attend our live classes.
What is required of parents during the AMP course:
Ensure that homework has been completed before each assessment.
Ensure that the student does not view the assessment before they are ready to complete it.
Proctor assessments and ensure that students are using only the appropriate materials allowed for use on each assessment.
How do the courses work?
High School Math Live offers the At My Pace (AMP) option for Pre-Algebra through Calculus II. Each subject is divided into two parts: AMP course A (first semester) and AMP course B (second semester). AMP course A and AMP course B are sold separately. A student will remain registered in the AMP course until the final exam has been completed or until 12 months from the day of purchase, whichever comes first. If the AMP course is not completed in 12 months, the student will receive a grade of incomplete. To receive a credit for a particular subject, a student must complete both Course A (first semester) and Course B (second semester). AMP courses include Instruction:
Each AMP course includes approximately 35 lessons, 35 homework assignments, 17 assessments and a cumulative final exam.
Each lesson includes:
A brief review of the previous lesson.
Approximately 30 to 45 minutes of instruction by a credentialed and experienced educator.
Opportunities for the student to pause the recording and attempt to solve a problem, giving students the opportunity to confirm for themselves that they have mastered the concepts being taught.
Homework Assignments: The majority of the suggested homework problems will be odd-numbered problems so that students can check their answers in the back of the book. If even-numbered problems are assigned, answers will be provided. At times, a worksheet/handout may be provided to supplement the book.
Grading and Feedback: Your student will be assigned an HSML teacher who will be responsible for sending assessments, grading and providing feedback for the assessments, and providing up to 2.5 hours of tutoring to the student. When the student completes the AMP course, the Teacher will provide a grade report. If the AMP course is not completed within 12 months of the date of purchase, the Teacher will provide a grade report showing the grade as Incomplete. The Teacher is NOT responsible for holding the student accountable to a schedule.
Tutoring: For each AMP course purchased, the student will have up to 2.5 hours of personal tutoring with the Teacher. The student can contact the Teacher to request tutoring anytime during the AMP course and they will meet in a live and interactive online classroom at a time that is convenient to both. If additional tutoring is needed, the student can find a tutor of their own or they can purchase additional time from the Teacher. Any unused tutoring time expires after the student completes the final exam or twelve months after the purchase of the AMP course, whichever comes first.
Logistics/grading/transcripts
After a student completes an assessment, it must be emailed to the Teacher as a single PDF file. The Teacher will upload the assessment in a personal OneNote file only viewable by the Teacher, student and parent. Personal feedback will be provided. Following this, the Teacher will send the next assessment. This procedure continues until the student has completed the AMP course. The Teacher will send a transcript using the following grading scale with tests counting 60% and quizzes counting 40% of the semester grade.
HSML Grading Scale A – 90 -100 B – 80-89 C – 70-79 D – 65-69 F – 64 and below
Subject Preparedness Documents
High School Math Live wants your student to be placed in the appropriate AMP course so that they will be successful and challenged while learning the beauty of mathematics. Each of our subjects (listed below) have a PDF document that contains questions we believe will be a good indicator of whether your student is ready for each of our "A" courses. Although it is not required that your student complete these problems, it is a helpful tool that we have prepared for you to use. If you are entering a "B" course, and you are unsure if your student is ready for the "B" course, please contact support@highschoolmathlive.com.
