In this course students will be introduced to several pre-algebra concepts which will be outlined in the lesson descriptions below. This class is an introductory course to provide exposure but not mastery of the skills. Our class is conducted via discussion, modeling, and interactive practice. Notes for each class will also be provided to aid in independent practice after class. Students should have a solid understanding of basic math (addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, fractions). It is recommended that this class be taken after Pre-Algebra 1 class but it is not required as long as students are familiar with positive and negative integers. Homework will be in the form of a worksheet and/or online skill practice. Learner progress is evaluated through class participation and weekly homework which should take not more than 30 minutes to an hour to complete.
