This course is designed for students who have successfully completed a pre-algebra course and will be enrolled in an Algebra I, Geometry, or Algebra II course in the fall. This course is also appropriate for students entering Hockaday's Integrated Math II and Integrated Math III courses. Students must be proficient and fluent with negative numbers to be successful in this course. Course topics may include variables and expressions, simplifying polynomials, equation solving, graphing linear equations, factoring, solving quadratic equations, simplifying radicals, word problems, and more. Students will be assessed on the first day of class to determine the best level of challenge needed. This is a great way to get ahead in Algebra I or to review Algebra I topics before taking more rigorous math courses. Enroll in multiple two-week sessions to strengthen skills and understanding of these abstract algebraic topics. Students are encouraged to register for multiple sessions as instruction will be progressive in nature. Your number sense will improve after spending up to six weeks in our Summer Math Institute!
