In the Algebra Readiness course, students in 5th, 6th and 7th grade will learn how to master problem solving techniques in order to place into advanced math classes while in middle school. This will allow them to save at least one to two years of math requirements that will help them to get into higher level math courses earlier (such as Calculus AB or BC) by the time they enter into high school. Students will benefit from taking both the Winter Term and Spring Term courses leading up to the time when they will need to take the Algebra Readiness math placement test in school.
This course meets Mondays 4:30-6:00 PM Pacific (7:30-9:00 PM Eastern). For the specific dates of the course please see the full course schedule by clicking here. This course can also be taken as a self-paced course by clicking here.
