**Math Basics 1: Multiplication**

Math Basics is a two-part series. These classes help refresh knowledge and build confidence with math.

In the first class, we review the basics of multiplying numbers. Multiplication is a quick way to add the same number many times. This is a skill we all need in our tool-kits! We talk about the multiplication table, and show you how easy it is to use. We then give tips for multiplying small numbers, working our way up to larger numbers.

**Math Basics 2: Division**

Math Basics is a two-part series. These classes help refresh knowledge and build confidence with math.

In the second class, we review the basics of dividing numbers. Just like multiplication and addition are related, division is a quick way to subtract the same number many times. We help you see this more clearly by working through examples together. We teach the steps for dividing small numbers, working our way up to larger numbers.

**Math Boot Camp 1: Algebra 1**

Math Boot Camp is a five-part series designed for learners taking algebra and geometry lessons with the LearningHUB. Learners preparing for high school credits, college courses, ACE programming or the GED Test will benefit from these sessions. Homework activities are assigned for extra practise.

In Part 1, we look at order of operations with signed numbers, evaluating single variable expressions, and solving single variable equations.

**Math Boot Camp 2: Algebra 2**

Math Boot Camp is a five-part series designed for learners taking algebra and geometry lessons with the LearningHUB. Learners preparing for high school credits, college courses, ACE programming or the GED Test will benefit from these sessions. Homework activities are assigned for extra practise.

In Part 2, we look at equations with two variables, including coordinate plane geometry (plotting points, and solving for slope and intercept).

**Math Boot Camp 3: Geometry 1**

Math Boot Camp is a five-part series designed for learners taking algebra and geometry lessons with the LearningHUB. Learners preparing for high school credits, college courses, ACE programming or the GED Test will benefit from these sessions. Homework activities are assigned for extra practise.

In Part 3, we look at perimeter and area, and volume of 2D and 3D shapes.

**Math Boot Camp 4: Geometry 2**

Math Boot Camp is a five-part series designed for learners taking algebra and geometry lessons with the LearningHUB. Learners preparing for high school credits, college courses, ACE programming or the GED Test will benefit from these sessions. Homework activities are assigned for extra practise.
