**Monday & Wednesday, 11:30-12:25 PM **4th Period

- $265/Semester

This course is to help students transition easily from arithmetic to algebra. We will be reviewing skills they have learned in previous arithmetic classes and building on those skills. Variables are introduced early in the text. We will work with numerical expressions and evaluate algebraic expressions of all kinds.

Topics covered throughout the year: Procedures for solving simple equations; Learning how to work with decimals, integers, and rational numbers; Solving more difficult equations and inequalities; Ratios, Proportions, and Percents; Geometry.
