Glencoe Pre-Algebra, Part Two

With Emily Nardozzi, MEd

Build a solid foundation within Pre-Algebra math, develop strong problem-solving skills, and learn to solve equations with clear critical thinking.

Pre-Algebra is a course designed to prepare students for Algebra 1. We will spend time performing basic operations on integers and rational numbers, as well as work on solving one and two-step equations with both integers and rational numbers. This course also covers real numbers and the Pythagorean theorem, proportions, algebra, geometry, percentages, area and volume, probability, statistics, inequalities, and linear functions.

Week One: 6.1 – 6.2: Line and Angle Relationships, Triangles and Angles

Week Two: 6.3 – 6.4: Special Right Triangles, Classifying Quadrilaterals

Week Three: 6.5 – 6.6: Congruent Polygons, Symmetry

Week Four: 6.7 – 6.8: Reflections, Translations

Week Five: 7.1 – 7.3: Area of Parallelograms, Triangles, Trapezoids and Complex Figures, Circumference and Area of Circles

Week Six: 7.5 – 7.6: Volume of Prisms, Cylinders, Pyramids, and Cones

Week Seven: 7.7 – 7.8: Surface Area of Prisms, Cylinders, Pyramids, and Cones

Week Eight: 10.1 – 10.3: Simplifying Algebraic Expressions, Solving and Write Two-Step Equations

Week Nine: 10.4 – 10.5: Solving Equations with Variables on Each Side, Inequalities

Week Ten: 10.6 – 10.7: Solving Inequalities by Adding, Subtracting, Multiplying, or Dividing

Week Eleven: 11.1 – 11.2: Sequences, Functions

Week Twelve: 11.3 – 11.4: Graphing Linear Functions, The Slope Formula

Week Thirteen: 11.6 – 11.8: Scatter Plots, Graphing Systems of Equations and Linear Inequalities

Week Fourteen: Review

Course materials: Mathematics: Applications and Concepts, Course 3, Student Edition (Glencoe Mathematics), 2005 Edition. We recommend purchasing the book used as they can be found for as little as 0.99 plus s/h.

Student Edition:

ISBN-10: 0078652650

ISBN-13: 9780078652653

Note: You can also buy the Teacher’s Edition if you would like to have a textbook with solutions to all problems (student edition only provides answers to odd numbered problems). The downside to using only the teacher’s edition is students will not be able to do their homework problems without seeing the solutions right in front of them. This could serve as a great second text to use for extra practice. The ISBN for the teacher’s edition are below.

ISBN-10: 0078668514

ISBN-13: 978-0078668517

Homework: 2-4 lessons per week with 15-20 homework problems per lesson, 1-2 short quizzes per week, and a chapter test approximately every other week.
