Summer Academic Enrichment Program

Adventures in Algebra

Description:
Adventures in Algebra has three levels. On the first day of class, students will take an assessment test to ensure proper placement. If the teacher recommends a move to a different level, the s/he will contact the parent.

Level 1: This class is designed for students who would benefit from an overview of operations with fractions, decimal numbers, working with integers (positive and negative numbers), percentages, and equations. Syllabus

Level 2: This class is designed to emphasize the study of multiple representations of linear and non-linear functions. It includes mathematical concepts for working with rational numbers, various expressions, analyzing and solving linear equations and inequalities. Our class is conducted via discussion, modeling, and practice. Students will be asked to take notes. Students have to have a solid understanding of basic math (addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, fractions). Syllabus

Level 3:  This class is for the proficient math student who is mostly ready for advanced Algebra and is designed to improve student understanding, achievement and interaction with advanced mathematical concepts integral in the accomplished stages of successful manipulation of algebraic expressions. Students will benefit by increasing their skills in linear equations, functions, geometry (rigid transformations) and statistics and probability (investigations of association in bivariate data).
