Lesson Timetable

Lesson Timetable

As already discussed, students will primarily spend their time in the topic section.

All of the content in that section needs to be completed in a time that allows for every student to have plenty of revision time in 6th year.

In order to achieve this, we place students that don’t have an Applied Maths teacher into different teams depending on when each student became a member of this website.

The team that a student is assigned to is determined by the timetable below.

I joined A.M. Online... I am therefore on team....

in September of 5th year or earlier

Alpha

between October and December of 5th year

Bravo

between January and March of 5th year

Charlie

between April and May of 5th year

Delta

in the summer between between 5th and 6th year

Echo

At the start of each topic, i.e. in each topic’s Overview page, there will then be a box like the one below.

$\,$

The length of time that we recommend members of each team spend on this topic are as follows:

$\,$

Alpha – 24 days

Bravo – 19 days

Charlie – 14 days

Delta – 11 days

Echo – 8 days

$\,$

By following these suggested times, every student in every team will complete this subject by the February mid-term break of 6th year at the latest, thereby leaving students with plenty of time for revision!

The times stated in each box are based on the assumption that students don’t use the website on weekends, mid-term breaks, summer holidays etc., just like a normal school timetable!

When starting a new topic, we suggest that each student first calculate the date that our timetable recommends finishing that topic by. In their copybook, they can then write both the topic title and this date on the top of a new page so that they can always quickly check what that date is! (Don’t worry, we’ll include an example of how to easily calculate that date at the start of the first lesson.)

Of course, the sooner a student joins, the less time they will need to spend on this website each week. We therefore encourage any students who are interested in studying Applied Maths to join A.M. Online as soon as they can!

Timetable Example

$\,$

Today’s date is Wednesday October 19th.

There is a one week mid-term break starting on October 31st.

On what date do we suggest members of team Bravo finish this topic by?

$\,$

According to the list above, team Bravo is recommended to complete this topic $$\mathbf{19}$$ days from now.

There are three school days left in this week.

Current day count: $$\mathbf{3}$$

There are five school days in the week beginning on October 24th.

Current day count: $$\mathbf{3+5=8}$$

There is then a one week mid-term break.

Students return to school on November 7th. There are five school days in that week.

Current day count: $$\mathbf{8+5=13}$$

There are five school days in the week beginning on November 14th.

Current day count: $$\mathbf{13+5=18}$$

As the recommended time period is $$19$$ days, the student can also work on November 21st.

Current day count: $$\mathbf{18+1=19}$$

Therefore, for this example, we suggest that members of team Bravo finish this topic by the end of Monday November 21st.
