For many students, algebra can be the most challenging subject. However, through training, students often discover that this topic can be simple, fun and that it has many real-world applications. This Pre-Algebra course is an introduction to basic algebra concepts and a review of arithmetic algorithms. The course is designed to help students overcome weaknesses in preparation in mathematics, emphasizing the concepts necessary to be successful in Algebra I and II. The course helps the student to develop good mathematical study skills and learning strategies as an integral part of this course. We will begin with a brief review of the number system and operations with whole numbers, fractions, decimals, positive and negative numbers. Eventually, we will cover rational and linear exponents, ratios, proportions, and percentage; solving simple and complex equations with one variable. In class we will play games, expand resources, complete activities and practice to make these concepts more accessible.
