This one-week course is for students entering high school as freshmen. We have found that the curriculum and areas covered in eighth grade vary school to school and district to district. The goal of this course is to make a smoother transition to high school math, to strengthen a rising freshman’s math foundation and to gain a head start. This course will sharpen pre-algebra skills taught in eighth grade and try to bring them to the level they need to be in entering Algebra I or Honors Algebra I. This course is strongly recommended for students taking Algebra I.
