Middle School Math A and B are designed to provide students with a strong foundation for Pre-Algebra. Students will be provided weekly lesson videos made by the tutor and practice problems for daily practice. Class time will be spent reinforcing video lessons through review games, extended practice, and learning problem solving skills.
