Mathematics – Pre-Algebra

This course provides the essentials necessary in preparing students for first year Algebra.  It helps to develop the student’s thinking skills and teaches the student strategies for solving multiple step problems. Building on their earlier experience with patterns, students continue to explore concrete situations using charts, graphs, tables of data and physical models. These explorations allow them to determine patterns in number sequences, to relate models to one another, to make generalizations about patterns and regularities in mathematics, and to make predictions.
