# Pre-Algebra

Pre-Algebra is the math you’ll use for the rest of your life. In fact, you’re already using it. Ever had to split a six-piece pizza between ten hungry friends? How about figuring out how many more assists you need for that triple-double? This is Pre-Algebra, and in this class, you’ll get the tools and tricks to tackle the types of math problems you deal with daily. This course can be used to supplement a face-to-face Pre-Algebra course.

*Please note: Pre-Algebra courses are not eligible for A-G approval.

RECOMMENDED PRE-REQUISITE: Completion of Mathematics standards through 6th grade

Basic and On Demand are always open for registration.
