Limited availability: see course times below - VRP available!

This course is designed to help students master the fundamentals of algebra and covers topics such as variables, equations, inequalities, graphing, functions, systems of equations and inequalities, exponent rules, polynomials & factoring, quadratic equations, exponential functions, radical expressions and equations, and data and statistics. The honors track includes a deeper focus on critical thinking and analytical skills by providing students with more challenging problems and assignments. These elements will prepare students to be successful in future upper-level and AP courses.

The course allows students to learn in a variety of ways: guided discovery learning, reading with guided notes, watching videos, and practice with reflection. Students have a variety of regular assessments to allow teachers to give feedback about their learning and understanding of key concepts.

The recommended sequence for students wishing to pursue advanced math classes: MATH150, MATH250, MATH350, MATH400, followed by their choice of MATH500, MATH510, or MATH520.

Student Feedback

EVP is very helpful and especially for Algebra because you can actually see how to work a problem.

I would plan to take future math classes through EVP, as I found it helped me with understanding the material better.

I enjoyed the group discussion boards, interacting math help websites, and how I had a kind teacher willing to offer help at almost any time.
