This course provides the foundation in algebra, geometry, and problem solving that is needed for success in more advanced courses. Students will build study and notetaking strategies to help develop their learning skills. Three major areas of developmental learning will be focused. They are:
Reinforce Students' Problem-Solving Skills:
Challenging problem-solving practice, in context, and clear presentation of key concepts prepare students for algebra courses.
Develop Active Learners:
Notetaking strategies, vocabulary review, and margin notes guide students to develop study skills and conceptual understanding.
Promote Achievement and Success:
Practice with test-taking strategies and varied question formats, in print and integrated technology resources, builds the confidence and problem-solving skills needed to achieve success.
Topics of Study Include:
Variables, Expressions, and Integers
Multi-step Equations and Inequalities
Factors, Fractions, and Exponents
Rational Numbers and Equations
Ratio, Proportion, and Probability
Real Numbers and Right Triangles
Measurement, Area, and Volume
Data Analysis and Probability
