This year-long class covers traditional pre-algebra material (with integrated geometry) preparing the student for Algebra 1. The student should be competent in division of fractions and decimals, GCF, LCM, percentages, and reducing and simplifying fractions. No calculators are allowed in this class. The parent will be responsible for grading homework assignments during the week using the Solutions Manual. Supplemental work, given on occasion, will be graded by the instructor. Class time will be spent on the presentation of new material (approximately four to six lessons per week), a weekly quiz, and answering homework questions as time permits. This course is taught at an honors level.
