### Khan Academy Exponents & Radicals

- 2nd session

What is an exponent? What is the sixth root of 729? Join this series to learn and practice these fundamental Algebra concepts! We'll be covering the material in the "Exponents & Radicals" unit of Khan Academy, and then we'll complete the unit test together. This series is perfect for you if you're currently taking Algebra and feeling like you're missing something, or if you're taking pre-algebra and you want to set yourself up for success when you take Algebra. Feel free to check out the Khan Academy unit here: https://www.khanacademy.org/math/algebra/x2f8bb11595b61c86:rational-exponents-radicals If you’re wondering what the sixth root of 729 is, the answer is 3. Great work if you got the answer! If you didn’t, relax! We will cover it during our sessions together. Also, it’s okay to make mistakes or not know something. But, I hope you are willing to learn.

### Khan Academy Exponential Growth and Decay

- 2nd session

What is the difference between exponential growth and decay? What is exponential graphs? What is math? (hopefully not that last one...) Are those questions that you've been asked at during school and it sounded like you teacher was making things up? Did you want to figure out if that was made up in the first place? If you answered yes to those questions, this series is for you! We will be going over Khan Academy's problems on Exponential Growth and Decay, and I'll be answering any questions you all have! At the end, we'll take the unit test to help you reach mastery in this topic! Feel free to overview the concepts here: https://www.khanacademy.org/math/algebra/x2f8bb11595b61c86:exponential-growth-decay

### Are these free?

Yes! We are a non-profit organization, and all tutors are volunteers.

### Are there crash courses beyond Algebra 1 and Pre-Calculus?

Because this offering is new, we're starting with just two courses. However, we hope to expand across all high school math courses down the line!

### How long is each crash course?

Each series is typically two weeks long, with two main sessions each week and one catchup session. If you find the topics easy, you can get ahead and finish the final unit test early.

### Is there homework?

Nope, all the magic happens in the live sessions! Of course, you can choose to review the Khan Academy unit materials if you want additional practice.

### What can I expect from a crash course session?

Sessions will typically have 3-5 students, led by a volunteer peer tutor. In each session, your tutor will walk you through key concepts, then lead the group to work on practice problems together. If you have any questions, your tutor will be right there to clear things up!

### Who are the tutors?

Series are run by trained, certified volunteers (mostly high school students!) who want to give back to their community by helping others learn.
