Pre-algebra

Step further into the world of algebra skills. Students will continue their studies on integers, order of operations, and numeric expressions in a 30-week, 90 min course. They will dive deeper into algebraic expressions, equations, inequalities and graphing on a coordinate plane. Problem solving will be a key aspect of pre-algebra. More critical thinking skills will be needed than in previous math courses. Real-life applications will be used with each new concept in order to help students connect math to their lives.

This course will be supplemented with tutor-made video lessons weekly and online assignments through a game-based program provided by the tutor. Class time will be spent reinforcing video lessons through hands-on activities and extending the lessons for advanced learners. Students will need to come to class having viewed the lessons and completed their daily online assignments in order to stay on track. This class is a full curriculum and no supplemental curriculum will be needed.

COVID-19 Contingency Plan:

In the event that the COVID-19 pandemic affects our ability to meet in person in a classroom for the 2020-21 school year, we will make the following adjustments to this class. Tutor and students will meet at the scheduled class time via a video chat service. Assignments can be submitted electronically, and feedback will be provided electronically. Our goal is to meet in person as soon as it is feasible. We may begin classroom meetings at any point during the school year as the COVID-19 situation resolves.
