Students from middle school to college take pre-algebra. Pre-algebra is the basis of and introduction to all upper level mathematics. An understanding of pre-algebra concepts is a requirement for all future math and sciences courses.
Much of pre-algebra is a review of all previously taught mathematics concepts with the inclusion of upcoming previews algebraic equations and models. Some of the items covered in a pre-algebra course are: Tools of Algebra, Integers, Equations, Factors and Fractions, Rational Numbers, Ratios, Proportion & Percent, Linear Equations & Inequalities, Functions & Graphs, Real Numbers & Right Triangles, Two Dimensional Figures, Three Dimensional Figures, Statistics & Probability, Polynomials & Nonlinear, and Functions.
For most students success in pre-algebra comes from regular studying and practicing habits. However, for some, math in general is a foreign language. These students require more assistance than self-study; they need someone who can answer their questions in a way that they can understand. Hiring a professional tutor strong in mathematics to assist in pre-algebra now can make a dramatic difference in a student’s performance and outlook on all future course work.
