This course is designed for middle school students, but may be taken as Algebra IA in a 2-year Algebra I course.
Pre-Algebra Students will study the foundational skills of Algebra including equations, multi-step word problems, geometry basics, and graphing.
Students will be required to have their homework graded at home.
