What are extra help sessions and do all Mr. D Math students get to use them?
  Extra help sessions are three times 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 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.
What is our sequence of courses?
  Preparing for Pre-Algebra
Pre-Algebra
Algebra I
Geometry
Algebra II
Pre-Calculus with Trigonometry
Calculus I
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 the 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. Contact us for more information.
 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.  
How long will your Self-Paced course stay active?
  Self-paced courses are active year-round. Students have until March 1st of the following academic year to complete their content.
Example:  When a student registers for any 2024-25 Self-Paced Course, their course is active until March 1, 2026.
What are the differences between the LIVE and SELF-PACED Courses?
  The biggest differences between the live instruction and self-paced classes 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.
