The Preparing for Pre-Algebra course focuses on building a strong foundation in preparation for a Pre-Algebra course. The first half of the course will practice basic facts and skills. This includes whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. The second half will introduce integers, expressions, one-step and two-step equations, and one-step and two-step inequalities. We recommend this course for grades 5 who are ready to explore these topics or for the 6th grader who wants an extra year to prepare for our Pre-Algebra program.
The prerequisite for this course is the completion of 4th-grade math and a happy young person ready to explore math discovering their own potential for middle and high school level courses.
This course is suitable for grades 5-6 for students needing the extra edge to prepare for Pre-Algebra. The online curriculum includes video-based instruction (Mac and PC compatible), coursework for each section of each chapter, chapter tests, semester exams, and a comprehensive solutions manual. Also included is an online grade book, email access to the Mr. D Math teaching staff and enrollment in the Mr. D Math virtual learning center.
