Description: This class will build the foundation necessary for Algebra 1 and is the next step after successfully completing Math 7. We will review and master concrete concepts of arithmetic and transition into the more abstract concepts of algebra.  Topics covered will include order of operations, exponents, radicals, ratios, probability, percent, word problems, scientific notation, relations, functions, and introductory algebra. The class will meet twice a week.
