Activity Description

This is a free online high school math review course hosted on OTAN’s server. This class was originally developed to help students prepare for CAHSEE math test. Throughout the program, a skill or concept is presented and followed by practice exercises and activities. Students read new information, use the information to answer questions or complete activities, and then integrate the new information with what they have already learned. In this way, knowledge is gained and absorbed bit-by-bit, forming links in a learning chain.

Topics include the following:

  1. Measurement and Geometry
  2. Algebra and Function
  3. Statistics, Data Analysis and Probability
  4. Number Sense
  5. Algebra

It can be used to supplement classroom instruction or as a distance learning course. You will need to contact Anthony Burik (aburik@otan.us) at OTAN to set up your own course. OTAN also provides free Moodle training so you can learn how to add quizzes, videos, assignments, and other resources in order to adapt the course to meet the needs of your students.
