### Series Details

About

Are you planning to take pre-algebra this coming school year? Are you taking algebra 1 this coming year, but still unsure about some topics? This is the series for you! I'll cover the main concepts of pre-algebra over the course of the summer and we'll work together to prepare you for your next math class, whatever that may be. Each session will be a mix of content learning with brief slideshows, practice problems, and occasionally math games and assessments. Looking forward to seeing people there!

✋ ATTENDANCE POLICY

Please try not to miss more than two sessions in a row, it could take the place of another learner! Also, feel free to message me if for whatever reason, you are unable to make it to a session.

### About the Tutor

Hi, I'm Lily (any pronouns), and I'm a high school junior/college freshman in dual enrollment! I currently live in Washington, but I'm originally from Massachusetts and plan to go back there for university. My favorite subjects are any science, but especially biology, math, and languages. Some of my other interests are drawing, painting, video games, programming, and D&D.

### Upcoming Sessions

Session 1

#### Orientation

Introductions, getting to know each other, and figuring out what people already know and want to cover the most.

Session 2

#### Factors and multiples

We'll go over factors and multiples to start building a solid foundation of what is needed for more complex topics in pre-algebra.

*Subject to change*

Session 3

#### Patterns

We'll go over patterns we see in numbers and how those can relate both to the mathematical world and everyday life.

*Subject to change*

Session 4

#### Ratios and rates

We'll go over ratios, rates, and percentages and discuss where they could be applied and where we most commonly see them (science, finances, health, etc.).

*Subject to change*

Session 5

#### Roots, exponents, & scientific notation

We'll go over exponents and basic exponent rules, roots (starting with square roots and cube roots, more if time permits), scientific notation, and how they all relate. We'll also briefly see what they all mean in real-life, and how they will relate to algebraic equations.

*Subject to change*

Session 6

#### Variables & expressions

We'll go over what variables are and their importance in algebra, as well as talk about where else you might see a variable. We'll also be introduced to expressions to prepare for full equations.

*Subject to change*

Session 7

#### Equations & inequalities introduction

We'll go over the basics of equations and inequalities using the foundation build from the previous sessions. We'll also be introduced to the different types of equations, but hold off on going into detail until the next sessions.

*Subject to change*

Session 8

#### Proportional relationships

We'll go over proportions and proportional relationships as a full introduction to solving equations, as it's one of the most foundation types. We'll look into how proportions are represented in real life and how you can use proportional relationships in your every-day.

*Subject to change*

Session 9

#### One-step and two-step equations & inequalities

We'll go over one-step and two-step equations (and inequalities), two of the other foundational types, and work on some practice problems to get them hang of them.

*Subject to change*

Session 10

#### Multi-step equations

We'll go over multi-step equations that are different in complexity, building off of what we already know about one-step, two-step, and proportional equations to solve more complex equations and work together on some practice problems.

*Subject to change*

Session 11

#### Two-variable equations

We'll go over equations with two different variables and discuss how they will relate to future topics in algebra. These practice problems will likely focus more on word problems to understand how the two variables are linked.

*Subject to change*

Session 12

#### Functions and linear models

We'll go over functions and linear (graphed) models to see these two-variable equations more in action. We'll also relate how functions (even the most basic ones) can be used in other fields like science and economics to analyze and show results.

*Subject to change*

Session 13

#### Systems of equations

We'll go over the basics of systems of equations, using what we know about two variable equations to solve them, and learn about the three main methods of solving.

*Subject to change*

Session 14

#### General Pre-Algebra Q&A

We'll go over any extra questions you have after having covered all the main topics. This session is completely optional, but recommended if you're still a little confused on something or just want to ask a fun question!
