Establishing solid mathematical study skills and iron clad problem-solving strategies is the mark of our Pre-algebra course at WHA. This course offers instruction that provides a strong foundation for students as they progress from a concrete understanding of basic math concepts to a deeper level of abstract comprehension of math principles and application. Students become proficient with order of operations, exponents, equation-solving, integers, basic geometry, ratio, proportion, percent, inequalities, graphing on the coordinate plane, area, volume, roots, basic probability, and statistics.
This School of Logic math course best serves students who are ready to find solutions to math problems by relating presented challenges to what they already know through identifying patterns, observing differences, and asking questions. Students will be prepared for a rich Algebra I experience and beyond. They will gain a depth of subject understanding, a practice of thinking well mathematically, and a joy of understanding mathematics as a way of thinking about the world rather than just a collection of memorized facts.
