### Pre-Algebra - Semester I

**Description**

PreAlgebra - First semester course is a foundation for students is a dive into the areas of problem solving strategies. This course ranges 16 weeks with the concepts and reinforcement of Special Angles, Perimeters, Areas, Right Triangles, Statistics, Counting and Probability and finally to polish these concepts we will end up with couple of problem solving strategies. These strategies are effective in handling word problems with ease and confidence. We will have two exams during the course to make sure students are on track the concepts learned.
