This class covers Pre-Algebra topics in greater depth and at a faster pace than other advanced courses.

Topics include the real number system, algebraic reasoning, solving multi-step equations and inequalities, proportional relationships, linear functions, graphs, percents, analyzing and displaying data, geometric figures, measurement, right triangles, and probability. There is an emphasis on solving word problems.

While these topics are similar to those offered in most classes, more emphasis is placed on theory and application in this advanced version. The class moves at an accelerated pace.

The text used in this class is: Pre-Algebra. Holt McDougal 2012.

Students have access to an online textbook.

To remain in this class a student must maintain a B (86%) trimester average.
