Does your student ever ask why math is so important? There are uses of mathematics in all the "hard" sciences such as biology, chemistry, and physics; the "soft" sciences such as economics, psychology, and sociology; engineering fields, such as civil, mechanical, and industrial engineering; and technological fields such as computers, rockets, and communications. There are even uses in sculpture, drawing, and music. In addition, anything which uses a computer uses mathematics. Learning mathematics forces one to think very logically, to solve problems, and to be precise in thoughts and words. In short, math teaches life skills. The focus of this course is to continue to build the foundation necessary for success in the study of algebra. Students will gain a deeper understanding of integers and rational numbers, expressions, equations and inequalities, ratios and proportional relationships, percent and proportional relationships, geometry, and statistics and probability and make connections between the theoretical processes and real-world applications.
All math classes will use Teaching Textbooks. This system lets students watch lectures, do problems, and get immediate grading each day. During class time, students will review past concepts, learn new ones, and solve real-world problems. Email if you would like help deciding which level of math is best for your student.
