Pre-Algebra introduces students to Algebra and Geometry, which in turn prepares them to take Algebra I the next year and Geometry the year after that. The course is goal-driven so each student works toward building her own mathematical skills. The class observes the uses of mathematics around them and relates them to what they study in class. Students also relate mathematics to topics they study in science as well as considering the role that mathematics may play in their futures. These goals are all achieved through discussion, inquiry, assignments, and projects.
