What will I learn in Pre-Algebra 1B?
• fraction, decimal, and percent operations (+, -, x, ÷)
• exponents and their rules
• linear functions and graphs
• Pythagorean theorem and describing congruent shapes
• data displays
Students will become experts in all operations using real numbers. This includes adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions, decimals, and percents as we see these numbers every day in real life (cooking, driving, money, and more). These important skills are the foundation of mathematics for the rest of your life whether it is in high school, college, or just to balance your checkbook. Students will also begin to solve equations and graph functions--a very important skill to be successful in General Algebra in the 8th grade.
