Which course is appropriate for my student?
What is the recommended sequence of Mr. D Math courses?
  Preparing for Pre-Algebra
Algebra I
Algebra II
Pre-Calculus with Trigonometry
Calculus I
Why do you recommend Geometry before Algebra II?
  We often get asked about course sequences. We find that students are better prepared for the abstract concepts in Algebra II by taking Geometry first. Geometry reinforces Algebra I skills, aiding in Algebra II readiness. Additionally, Mr. D believes Algebra I fosters left-brain thinking, while Geometry enhances right-brain thinking, promoting a holistic approach to Algebra II.

What are extra help sessions, and do all Mr. D Math students get to use them?
  Extra help sessions are held three times a week during the regular school year, and twice a week during the summer session. These online meetings provide all students participating in Mr. D Math programs (both live online and self-paced) with the opportunity to ask questions and receive assistance with challenging problems. These sessions are similar to online tutoring and often involve multiple students along with the teacher.  
How can students ask Mr. D Math teachers questions during the week?
  The most beneficial resource for students is the live online extra help sessions. However, sometimes students need their questions answered immediately. Students can email Mr. D Math teachers at any time directly from their student dashboard. The Mr. D staff strives to respond to student inquiries promptly, often within the same day.
What are the differences between the Live and Self-Paced Courses?
  The biggest differences between the live instruction and self-paced courses are as follows.

1.  The way the instruction is delivered
  •  Live: Students meet weekly with their instructor and other students to receive instruction.
  •  Self-Paced: Students watch the embedded video to receive instruction.

2.  Pace
  •  Live: Students are expected to complete their weekly assignments before attending class the following week.
  •  Self-Paced: Students can move at their own pace. Students can follow the pace chart available, move at a faster pace or move at a slower pace.

3.  Cost
  • Live: Curriculum is purchased and an additional cost is paid for live instruction.
  • Self-Paced: Curriculum is purchased.
When can I purchase the Self-Paced course, and how long will I have access to it?
  Self-Paced courses can be purchased year-round.
Once a course is purchased, it is available until March 1st of the following academic year (e.g. if a course is purchased for the 2024-25 academic year, the student's access expires on March 1, 2026.

Expired Courses:  If a student requires extra time beyond the March 1st deadline, they can extend their course until the following March 1st by paying a $25 transfer fee. If an additional extension is needed, a new course must be repurchased.

*Charter school students must adhere to the semester start and end dates established by their respective institutions.
