Lisa Morales

 

I earned a B.S. in Pure Mathematics from Cal Poly Pomona in 2008, an M.S. in Mathematics from UC Riverside in 2010, and an M.S. in Education from Mount Saint Mary's University in 2017.

Before joining Mt. Sac full-time in Fall 2017, I was a full-time teacher at Bishop Amat High School in La Puente. I enjoyed my five years there teaching mostly AP Calculus AB/BC and now I am happy to be here at Mt. Sac teaching a wonderfully diverse group of students. I have a real passion for teaching and math and try to share that passion with my students.

 

I would like to give you a small glimpse of my online class structure, so that you know what to expect in my class.

 

In my Spring 2021 Math 160 class:

My class is synchronous, which means we will meet on Zoom: Tuesday, Thursday. Before most class sessions, you will be required to watch video lessons on the topic, and we will continue the lesson live on Zoom. You will have a chance to ask questions and practice the material. You will be expected to have a working microphone to participate in warm up problems, group problem solving, individual problem solving, and fun games (as time permits) during Zoom sessions, and are strongly encouraged to have your camera on for some portions. A physical copy of the textbook is not required. We will be using a zero-cost textbook for this class! Free access to Desmos, Flipgrid is required. There will be homework due regularly that is primarily worksheets with both computational problems and some that require written explanation. Other homework assignments may include Discussion Threads, Computer Projects, and Flipgrid Videos. Homework assignments will generally be due Tuesday, Thursday. We will have about one quiz a week on Canvas. Exams will vary in format (PDF Uploads, Canvas Quizzes, Flipgrid Videos, Projects) to include traditional problems, video explanations, and projects.

 

The following is a list of materials for this course:
Reliable Internet Connection: Required
Writing Utensils: Required
Printer: Strongly Recommended
Paper (Printer or Lined): Required
Webcam: Required
Scientific Calculator or App: Required
Desktop/Laptop/Tablet/Smartphone: Required
Built-in or External Microphone: Required
Scanner or Free Scanning App: Required
Laptop Loans Program and Other Resources: https://www.mtsac.edu/studentservices/criticalsupport.html

In my Spring 2021 Math 160 + Math 16 class: This is a corequisite class, which means there is an extra 2 unit portion designed to give extra support in various aspects of the class. We will be using Canvas courses for both Math 160 and Math 16.
