Intro to HS Math A

Why This Class

As a parent, you know your student wonders how certain math skills will apply to their future. You want your student to understand the important role math plays in life and develop the problem-solving skills to become the person they want to be.

In this course, students start thinking about what they want to do when they grow up and how math can help them get there. They learn how algebra helps solve real-life problems by completing exercises with numbers and operations, patterns of geometry, and equations with one unknown. Students also learn how to solve problems with two-variable linear functions and start learning about statistics. Throughout the course, students focus on connecting concepts they have been learning their whole lives to prepare for more advanced math in high school.

By the end of this course, students understand the importance of a strong mathematical foundation and have the necessary skills to succeed in high school math. They can solve more complex problems and equations than ever—and relate them to the real world.
