Pre-Algebra is a middle school level course that prepares students for the study of Algebra 1. This course is suitable for mathematically advanced fifth and sixth graders, in addition to seventh and eighth graders who would like to build a strong foundation in Pre-Algebra concepts.
Pre-Algebra A covers four broad topics: arithmetic expressions; fractions, decimals, percents, and ratios; exponents and radicals; and data and statistics. The practice problems provided in this course range from fundamentals practice to complex word problems from previous AMC8 and MathCounts contests.
This course typically takes 4-7 months to complete. This depends on the student's dedication to homework, their previous experience, and the difficulty of course material. Our instructors move at the pace of the student, taking extra time to reinforce concepts as needed.
