Students in Pre-Algebra will receive a solid foundation for success in upper-level Algebra.  This course covers topics such as integers, basic equations using additive and multiplicative inverse, properties ( associative, commutative, and distributive ), absolute value, ratio and proportion to include a few.  Other upper level operations such as transforming Celsius to Fahrenheit, military time, volume of three dimensional shapes, and surface area are also included.  In class each week, students can expect to begin with a morning mental math activity.  The past week’s material is reviewed prior to taking a weekly test.  New material is taught with time to practice this together in class.  Honors lessons are required in this book for enrichment and as time allows, we will go over them in class.
