    Class Overview

    This is a rapid pace preparation course for high school level Algebra I in the following year.  Excellent arithmetic skills are a prerequisite for all enrolled students. Our main emphasis will be linear algebra skills during the first semester and quadratic equations during the second semester. Additionally, individuals who look for challenges, strive for excellence, and are motivated to work diligently each day are the most apt to thrive.

     

    Grades

    70% - Test                   20% - Quizzes and Special Assignments                   10% - Homework

     

    Homework

    This is a critical aspect of the course.  Students are required to check the odd answers located in the back of the textbook for every assignment.  Checking work prior to entering class gives students important feedback.  Duration times of a typical assignment vary.  Thirty minutes is common, however some assignments may take longer.
