Pre-Algebra Topics to be Covered

Could your child use a little extra helping understanding the foundations of math before taking Algebra? I will be offering free live math sessions covering Pre-Algebra topics such as

- adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing integers
- adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions
- adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing decimals
- working with percents
- order of operations
- working with exponents
- working with ratios and proportions
- solving simple equations

What are my credentials? I have a PhD in Statistics and a BS in Math. I have taught or tutored elementary through college students. Currently, I am teaching Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Pre-Calculus at a center whose core idea is to teach high-performing kids in math. When I taught College Algebra, I saw first hand how not having a good foundation in Pre-Algebra skills really hurt some of the students. It’s pretty hard to do Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 if you have not mastered Pre-Algebra skills.

## A Pre-Algebra Reference Book

A good book that I use to pull examples from as I tutor is called Pre-Algebra DeMystified. It goes over all the topics I mentioned above.

These live sessions will be offered biweekly, FREE of charge. In an upcoming post. I’ll announce the time for the first session. I will provide worksheets to go along with the lessons.
