Pre-Algebra and Algebra I
Brush-Up on Math
High School Math live is offering Pre-Algebra and Algebra I courses during July and August! Here are some FAQs about this program:
How can I determine if my student will be successful in a summer course?
**We have a placement test available, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request one.
**Students who demonstrate mastery on the placement exam and fit into one of these categories are prepared for these classes:
When will the classes meet?
Classes will meet daily, Monday through Friday, beginning on July 2 and running through August 24 with a holiday on July 4. All classes will be recorded so that students can re-watch the instruction as they complete their homework or they can view the class later if they have to miss class. However, due to the quick pace of the course, absences are highly discouraged.
Pre-Algebra - 3:00 - 4:15 Central Time
Algebra I - 3:00 - 4:15 Central Time
What textbook will be used?
Textbook: Glencoe Pre-Algebra ISBN: 978-0078252006
Textbook: Glencoe Algebra I ISBN: 978-0078651137
How much time will be required outside of class?
Students will be expected to complete homework assignments daily. The time required to complete a homework assignment always varies greatly between students, but plan on two or three hours outside of class daily.
How will grades be assessed?
Students will take the same quizzes and tests that we give in our year-long classes, which means a student will complete a quiz or test almost every day as part of their homework assignment. The teacher will grade the assessment and give daily feedback.
What is the cost of this course?
The total cost, including registration and tuition, is $550 for Pre-Algebra and $600 for Algebra I. (Payment can be made in one or two payments.) The textbooks are not included but can be purchased online for around $15. This is the same price as our full-year course because the content is identical even though the length of the course is much shorter.
Who are the teachers for these classes?
Rhonda Ellis - Pre-Algebra
Brenda Barnett - Algebra I
How do I register for the course?
Registration for these classes is closed. Check back for more options next summer - or join us in August for year-long live and interactive online classes!
