This course helps prepare students for Algebra 1. Students will be guided in their learning through written material, videos, and web-based activities and assessments. Students are regularly required to reflect on the concepts they are learning, to explain their work, and to communicate their understanding of key concepts.

Key concepts covered in this course include the following: simplifying expressions, single variable equations and inequalities, percent and proportions, linear functions, systems of linear equations, irrational numbers and radicals, area and volume, transformations, and scatter plots.


Taking a strong Pre-Algebra course is necessary to be prepared for Algebra and other high school level courses. We would love for you to join our class as we work together to prepare for Algebra. In this course, all lesson material will be given through our Learning Management System, so you will be able to learn the content through exploration and practice on different interactive websites. Videos and guided instruction will help all types of learners engage with the material and apply it to real-life examples. You will also be able to engage with your classmates through video discussions. God has created an amazing world and math enables us to explore it more fully. We would love for you to join our class!

If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.

Student Feedback

I found the class to be very organized and followed a specific routine (which was very nice), and I enjoyed the easily accessible lessons.


This was a very easy to follow course. I knew that every thee weeks I was going to have a test, which made it easier to study.


We were able to quiz each other and help each other out.
