### Series Details

About

We'll go through the most important concepts of pre-algebra while becoming more confident in our math skills! This entire course will utilize materials from Khan Academy so learners can practice material after class and come with questions! The topics we will cover include:

- Ratios and rates: We'll dive deep on understanding how to simplify ratios to arrive at a unit rate and applying ratios to real word problems.

- PEMDAS/BODMAS: We'll review the idea of order of operations and introduce exponents on whole numbers, negative numbers, and fractions!

- Equations/Inequalities: We'll practice working with like terms, performing operations to both sides of an equation or inequality, and isolating the variable.

- Multi-step equations: We'll expand on what we covered previously and incorporate equations of slightly more difficulty that require multiple steps!

- Two-variable equations: We'll walk through the concept of slope and representing linear equations with two variables using slope-intercept form!

- Functions and linear models: We'll recap two-variable equations and see how we can apply it to real world problems by drawing linear functions!

- Systems of equations: We'll answer the question, "How do we determine the value of two variables from two equations?" by covering substitution and graphing methods.

I'm very excited to work with you and look forward to working with you in this series :))

### About the Tutor

I'm a middle school student from Massachusetts and I'm here to help others learn and grow! In my free time, I enjoy reading, biking, playing soccer, and hanging out with my friends.

### Upcoming Sessions

Session 1

#### Orientation

Welcome to Pre-Algebra: The Fundamentals! We'll introduce ourselves, do a quick overview of this course's material, practice/study methods, and set goals for ourselves! We will also take a pre-assessment in class (Khan Academy Pre-Algebra Course Challenge) to evaluate our skills before we begin learning so I can understand our starting point.

Session 2

#### Ratios and rates

We'll dive deep on understanding how to simplify ratios to arrive at a unit rate and applying ratios to real word problems.

Session 3

#### Exponents intro and order of operations

We'll review the idea of order of operations and introduce exponents on whole numbers, negative numbers, and fractions!

Session 4

#### Equations & inequalities introduction

We'll practice working with like terms, performing operations to both sides of an equation or inequality, and isolating the variable.

Session 5

#### Multi-step equations

We'll expand on what we covered previously and incorporate equations of slightly more difficulty that require multiple steps!

Session 6

#### Two-variable equations

We'll walk through the concept of slope and representing linear equations with two variables using slope-intercept form!

Session 7

#### Functions and linear models

We'll recap two-variable equations and see how we can apply it to real world problems by drawing linear functions!

Session 8

#### Systems of equations

We'll answer the question, "How do we determine the value of two variables from two equations?" by covering substitution and graphing methods.

Session 9

#### Review

Amazing work! We've covered all Pre-Algebra topics and we're ready to reflect on our journey and retake the course challenge to see our learning growth :)
