This course is designed to help students master the concepts, skills and reasoning strategies in the Pre-Algebra targets. The curriculum includes components from functions, algebra, geometry, statistics, numbers and proportional reasoning. The curriculum moves at an accelerated pace.

The curriculum moves at an accelerated pace. Students will need a math score of 90% or higher on MAP math and a reading score of 90% or higher on reading, and a Final Math score of 85% or higher. Students must maintain a B or better at the end of each trimester in order to remain in the class.

This course is intended for an above-average serious student who is motivated, responsible and able to learn at a fast pace. This is the same course as Pre-Algebra but moves faster and covers material in more depth with emphasis on problem solving and concept mastery.
