Algebra IA Basic Skills
Algebra is practical math that is applied to solving basic everyday problems. This particular course is designed for students who struggle to achieve success in a traditional college preparatory environment. In order to make this course applicable to these unique students, the fundamental concepts of Algebra are clearly explained and practically applied. Equation solving, polynomials, factoring and graphing are all presented at the students’ pace with individual attention, care, and respect given to different learning styles. Practical life application of these skills is achieved through hands on learning, visual aids, and repetition. Through individual attention and encouragement, students will be able to make Algebra personal and practical experience rather than an abstract concept. Students MUST possess a scientific or graphing calculator.
