This course will cover all topics normally taught as an introduction to algebra, as well as additional topics such as absolute value, basic geometry, linear equations and square roots. Positive and negative integers are introduced at the beginning of the school year. Strong emphasis is placed on the proper steps to solving equations and checking your answers so that students will transition to Algebra I with confidence.
