Why This Class
As a parent, you want your student to hone the skill of making smart decisions. Both algebra and geometry promote logical thinking skills that help adults make wise financial choices and intelligently analyze news reports. This course integrates lessons from both branches of math to bring your student’s judgment to a new level, in math and everyday life.
Mentors in this course introduce students to exponential properties and help them extend the core concepts of arithmetic to polynomials—and then apply it all to real-life scenarios. Students use geometry to explore the mathematical characteristics of solids, circles, and conic sections. With the help of math tutors as needed, they also use the principles of exponential growth and decay to answer practical questions.
By the end of this course, students round out their foundational skills in algebra and feel prepared to take on more advanced studies. Most importantly, they gain a more logical mindset that equips them to make better decisions every day.
