Pre-Algebra bridges the gap between basic mathematical functions and algebraic thinking. The focus is on building a strong foundation as students prepare to move forward to Algebra I, Algebra 1 Honors, Applied Mathematics, or Business Math. Topics include evaluating expressions, fractions, ratios, proportions, percents, and introductory geometry. The main area of focus is solving one variable equations and graphing linear equations. Students need a firm grasp of integer and basic operations to be successful in this course.
Prerequisite: Successful completion (C+ or above) of MathThematics Book II or equivalent, or permission of the instructor.
