Course Number: 2021

Course is generally intended to provide an extra year of study for students who have attained general mathematics objectives but are not yet ready to enter Algebra I. Pre Algebra covers a variety of topics, such as properties of rational numbers (i.e., number theory), ratio, proportion, estimation, exponents and radicals, the rectangular coordinate system, sets and logic, formulas, and solving first degree equations and inequalities. Review topics: arithmetic using rational numbers, basic geometry, and basic statistics. Enhancement topics: operations involving real numbers, evaluating rational algebraic expressions, graphing first degree equations and inequalities, translating word problems into equations, polynomial operations and factorization, and solving simple quadratics.
