Eighth Grade Pre-Algebra


Students are selected for this course based upon their overall performance as seventh grade math students and are expected to be proficient in general computational mathematics. Besides learning equation solving and simplification of algebraic expressions, students will also work with geometric concepts. This course strives to foster improvement in problem-solving skills, problem analysis, and independent thinking in preparation for high school mathematics. Higher-level mathematical concepts will be explored as students gain confidence and mastery in their ability to problem solve. Common Core State Standards will be applied. Math: Built to the Common Core by ConnectEd McGraw-Hill will be our text. (The text is accessible through an iPad app as well as a desktop computer.)
