This course is designed for students who will be taking pre-algebra in the coming year. Proficiency with whole numbers, fractions, and decimals is required. Students will extend their skills in these areas to include applications involving negative numbers and variables. Additional topics may include variables and expressions, equations and word problems, ratio, proportion and percent, and geometry. Students will be assessed on the first day of class to ensure that each child is challenged at the best level. This course is appropriate for students entering Hockaday's Integrated Math I course. Each session is two weeks in length but can be progressive, so participation in multiple sessions will provide further in-depth instruction and a great head start on the upcoming school year.
