Elements of Algebra

This pre-algebra course prepares students for higher-level mathematics. It focuses primarily on developing a strong foundation for future algebraic concepts. Students learn to use variables, rational numbers, and functions to represent patterns and relationships. In addition, they continue to write and solve equations and graph their functional relationships. Students practice real-world application of these skills through problem solving and laboratory exercises using current data. Basic concepts of probability, statistics, and geometry are integrated into the course.
