About the Course
This course will begin with a review of middle school math skills and end with basic algebra problem-solving techniques. Students will focus on adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing positive and negative numbers, fractions, and decimals, as well as GCF, LCM, graphing, divisibility rules etc. This is a great way to strengthen mathematical concepts before moving onto Algebra I. This class meets once/week, but can be partnered with Math Bookcamp, making it a once a week or twice a week class. Students are welcome to take one or both classes.. Students will be assigned homework after each class.
