Pre-algebra 

Fall Schedule:  Mondays 1:00 - 3:00 pm

Classes begin the week of August 21, 2017 and are held in the Allied Gardens/Grantville area of San Diego.

This class teaches what I wish all my Algebra I students and beyond had learned before beginning the high school course sequence. 

Pre-requisite: Proficiency with basic arithmetic concepts. Students who are close to this level may be able to fill gaps as they go, if they are willing to work hard to so. Ask the instructor if in doubt. 

The emphasis of this class will not only be on typical Pre-Algebra concepts, but on developing a problem-solving approach to math in general.

Math history and recreational math (yes, there is such a thing) puzzles and activities will be a weekly feature of the class. At least three independent study day assignments will need to be completed weekly for students to be prepared for class activities.

Minimum of 6 students, maximum 10

Tuition: $300 per semester. 

Curriculum / text: AoPS PreAlgebra, with supplemental resources / activities
