The Math class will include a review of key algebraic concepts with a focus on those less studied chapters that are sometimes overlooked, but that cover critical algebra topics: combining polynomials, working with radicals, and solving quadratic equations. In addition, whether collaborating with partners or working in groups, students will develop their problem-solving skills as well as build confidence in using multiple strategies to solve word problems. A primary learning goal of the workshop is to help students develop an enhanced understanding of algebraic problem-solving beyond a rote level. Students will frequently visit critical arithmetic skills with decimals, fractions, and percent in order to maximize their overall math readiness for future classes. On the lighter side, students will also tackle brain teasers and puzzles to appreciate the elegance and fun of math.
