This Pre-Algebra course provides students the opportunity to stretch their abstract thinking, critical thinking, and analytical reasoning. Students will continue to work on documenting their work in organized steps and sharing verbally their thinking and solution strategy. In this course, students will be presented with challenging but accessible problems, and asked to reason through them collaboratively with their peers.
Students will be introduced to formal algebraic thinking with a focus on expressions, equations, and inequalities. Other topics include percents, geometry, statistics, graphing, and linear relationships.
