Course Description
Pre‐Algebra is a full‐year, two‐semester secondary‐level math course. The main goal of this course is to provide students with a thorough and extensive study of linear and quadratic functions and graphing on the xy‐coordinate system. By the end of this course, students will have all the knowledge necessary to solve and graph equations and inequalities. They will also be able to apply this knowledge to other areas of math, such as word problems, ratios and proportions.
The course starts off with a quick review of basic algebraic concepts, such as variables, order of operations, exponents and problem solving skills. They will gain a thorough introduction to functions, the basis of all of algebra and higher mathematics, such as calculus. Students will learn how to solve linear equations, including multistep equations, equations with multiple variables and equations involving decimals, as well as write a linear equation based on the graph of a line. The Algebra 1 course also gives the students a thorough introduction of functions and quadratic equations. They will learn all the operations associated with the two, such as factoring and graphing. The end of the course takes the students’ knowledge of algebra 1 one step further by introducing them to some basic concepts of geometry.
Pre‐Requisites
Students should successfully complete 6th grade level mathematics prior to entering the course. Only students in 7th and 8th grade are permitted to take the Pre‐Algebra.
Learning Objectives
At the end of this course students will be able to
1. Write and evaluate variable expressions.
2. Use the order of operations.
3. Add, subtract, multiply and divide integers.
4. Write rules for patterns.
5. Graph points in the coordinate plane.
6. Identify and use properties of addition and multiplication and the Distributive Property.
7. Simplify expressions.
8. Solve one‐step equations and inequalities.
9. Round decimals.
10. Find mean, median and mode of a set of data.
11. Substitute into formulas.
12. Convert metric and customary units.
13. Use divisibility tests.
14. Find the prime factorization of a number.
15. Find the greatest common factor and least common multiple.
16. Write fractions in simplest form.
17. Simplify expressions with integer exponents.
18. Write and evaluate numbers in scientific notation.
19. Write fractions as decimals and write terminating and repeating decimals as fractions.
20. Add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions and mixed numbers.
21. Solve proportions.
22. Find probability and odds.
23. Write percent as fractions and decimals and write decimals and fractions as percent.
24. Find a part of a whole, a percent and a whole amount.

Supplies
Students are required to bring the following supplies to class every day of the year:
Notebook and Pencil
Bound with at least two subjects for note taking.
Pen is acceptable, pencil is preferred.
Before beginning, students will take a Learning Outcomes Assessment. This pretest will help the student and instructor determine how to focus efforts to successfully complete this course. Each week students will be expected to do the required reading in the textbook or interactive textbook, explore the topic lectures which include illustrated examples and interactive activities, complete the assignments by solving problems, attend at least one of the two onehour chat sessions to communicate both verbally and in writing with the instructor and other students synchronously, answer questions asynchronously on the discussion board, and demonstrate understanding of the week’s material through a multiple choice and free‐response test. At the end of the course, students will complete a final exam and submit two projects of their choice. The following is the point distribution that will determine a student’s course grade:
Procedures
What to do (and not to do) in class:
Being on time to class means you are ready to learn
You should be in your seat with materials out by the time the bell rings. Passing time is 10 minutes, which provides plenty of time to use the restroom, socialize with friends and be to class on time.

Missed class
You are responsible for material covered when you are absent. If you have an unexcused absence when an assignment is due, you will receive a zero grade. For excused absences, you are given two make‐up days for every day you are absent. This means that if you miss class on Monday and return on Wednesday, the work you missed on Monday is due Friday. Missed labs must be made up – see the instructor to arrange a time to perform the experiment. The most common reason for students receiving a zero on an assignment is that they did not make it up when they were absent. Use ADD SCHOOL GRADING SYSTEM as a tool to know which assignments are missing. I do not chase down students or remind them that they have missed work when they are absent. Students are responsible for ensuring that assignments are completed on time.

*****NO LATE WORK WILL BE ACCEPTED*****
Homework and labs are due at the beginning of class on the assigned due date. Homework and labs handed in after this are late and will receive a zero grade.

Cell phones
Cell phones are not allowed in class. You must be turned off and stow your phone during class. If I catch you using your cell phone during class, I will keep your phone until 3:05 pm that day.

Plagiarism& Cheating
Students involved in any type of plagiarism – either submitting answers not their own that they don’t understand, supplying answers to other students, copying another student’s work, or making up lab data – will be given a zero for the assignment.
INSTRUCTOR will, under no circumstances, write a letter of recommendation for any student who is involved with plagiarism in her class, regardless of the size of the infraction.
Units
Ratio and Converting Unit Rates
Proportions and word problems involving proportions
Fractions, Decimals and Percent
Proportions, Percent and Equations
Solving Equations in Two variables
Solving and graphing Inequalities
Relations and Functions, and their graph.
Slope and Y‐ Intercept.
Review and Midterm exams.
Solving Systems of Linear Equations by graphing and Graphing Linear Inequalities. Spatial Thinking – Introduction to Geometry: Points, Lines, and Planes
Angles – Angle relationship and Parallel lines
Classifying Polygons and Congruence and Circles
Translation, Symmetry and Reflections, and Rotations
Area and Volume
Review and Final Exams.
Questions?
Parents, guardians, and host parents: If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact me! E‐mail is the best way to reach me. I am happy to answer questions via e‐mail, meet with you in person, or have a phone conversation.
Students: I want you to succeed in Pre‐Algebra! If you have questions, are struggling with the course material, are concerned about your grade, or have any other concerns, please come talk to me sooner rather than later. I am happy to find a time to meet with you before school, after school, or during lunch.
