What is the Pre-Algebra Program?

The Pre-Algebra Program is a critical educational bridge between arithmetic and algebra. It equips students with the foundational skills necessary for success in Algebra I and subsequent math courses.

Why is Pre-Algebra Important?

Pre-Algebra lays the groundwork for high school mathematics. It's essential for developing abstract thinking skills, understanding algebraic concepts, and preparing for advanced math courses.

What does the Pre-Algebra Curriculum Include?

The Pre-Algebra curriculum is a foundational course that prepares students for Algebra I and higher-level mathematics. Here's a general outline of the Pre-Algebra curriculum:

- Real Numbers:Understanding different types of numbers, including integers, fractions, and decimals, and how to perform operations with them.
- Linear Functions: Introduction to functions and linear equations, including graphing and interpreting linear functions.
- Algebraic Expressions: Learning to simplify expressions, solve equations, and understand variables and coefficients.
- Congruence and Similarity: Exploring geometric figures and understanding the concepts of congruence and similarity in shapes.
- Pythagorean Theorem: Applying the Pythagorean Theorem to find distances and understand the relationship between the sides of right triangles.
- Angles and Polygons: Studying angles, polygons, and their properties, including interior and exterior angles.
- Solid Figures: Examining three-dimensional figures, calculating volume and surface area.
- Probability of Multiple Events: Understanding probability, including compound events and independent versus dependent events.
- Populations and Samples: Learning about statistics, sampling methods, and how to make inferences about populations.
- Bivariate Data: Analyzing data with two variables, understanding scatter plots, and correlation.
- Moving Forward and Digging Deeper: A review and extension of concepts learned throughout the course, preparing students for Algebra.
