Do you need a review of Pre-Algebra or an extra boost before Algebra? Do you want to reinforce your prior math course or keep your math skills fresh over the summer? Are you joining TPS for the first time and want to make sure you are ready for Algebra? Students answering yes to any of these questions will benefit from this course. We will reinforce computational skills, as well as strengthen critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Some of the target areas include: operations with integers (positive and negative numbers), order of operations, solving equations, ratios, proportions, coordinate systems, and foundations for factoring. Live teaching will cover important concepts with in-class problem-solving, including student participation on the whiteboard.

“This class provides excellent review for those who want to improve their math skills before entering Algebra 1. It guides you through each of the Pre-Algebra concepts with instruction, study and practice. It also provides a great way to interact with your fellow classmates by separating into teams to work on math problems together. In summary, this class provides all the needed essentials to effectively prepare you for Algebra 1.”
