About the Course
Algebra I is a traditional beginning algebra course that explores how to use variables and numbers with mathematical symbols to solve problems. This will include a comprehensive look at evaluating expressions, writing and solving equations, graphing functions, solving quadratics, and understanding inequalities.
Mrs. Math recommends this course for students in grades 7+ who are ready to explore these topics. Younger students looking for advanced math curriculum should contact Mrs. Math prior to registering.
This virtual course will include 34 weeks of live video-based instruction (Mac and PC compatible), coursework for each section of each chapter, chapter tests, semester exams, and a comprehensive solutions manual for students and parents. Also included is an online gradebook and email access to Mrs. Math.

Meet the Instructor
My name is Amanda Stunes. I have been an educator for 13 years, and am the founder of Mrs. Math. I received my BS in Education from the University of Arizona. I started my teaching career in 2008 at a public elementary school in Tucson, AZ, but quickly discovered my passion for teaching mathematics and moved to middle grade instruction, where I taught 6th grade math through 8th grade Algebra I for high-school credit. I pride myself in the relationships I built with students and their families, and was awarded Teacher of the Year after my students showed considerable growth on their state assessments. I am equally passionate about gifted education, and have presented my gifted curriculum at the AAGT (Arizona Association for Gifted and Talented) Conference. In my free time, I am engaged with my local church and run a meetup group for fellow pug-lovers. I enjoy playing board games, hiking, and traveling with my husband and our two kids.
I enjoy teaching students on skills that they are missing, while also finding an enjoyable and relatable way to connect with them. Especially with mathematics, students get discouraged when something is challenging for them, but my goal is for all students to have fun while building up their confidence and excelling in math. My passion is teaching, and I am excited for the opportunity to be your child’s instructor!
