Pre-Algebra students will develop skills necessary to simplify arithmetic and algebraic expressions. They will evaluate algebraic expressions and solve equations. Basic geometric concepts will be further developed. Students will be introduced to translating word phrases and sentences into algebraic phrases and equations.

Students should have a scientific calculator that can compute fractions.
