Prealgebra and algebra classes are extremely important in the progression of a student’s math education. The concepts learned lay the foundation for more advanced classes, including geometry, trigonometry, and calculus. These math concepts also make up a large portion of the content on tests like the SAT and the ACT. From the beginning of a pre-algebra or algebra class, students need to learn to see algebra as a language that makes sense, and not as a set of random rules. Missing just one or two concepts in algebra can lead to poor test grades. At SLC, we identify the areas a student has not fully grasped in school, and solidify these concepts to ensure a strong foundation for future success.
