Course Description:

The Intro to Algebra 1 summer course is great for any 5th-8th grader who would like to spend some of their summer break reviewing math topics that will be the foundation for their future Geometry, Algebra 2, and Calculus classes. The amount of content and the pacing for this summer course will be dependent on what is most effective for the student.

Emphasis will be placed on important core concepts and intuitive explanations for students who may be struggling, whereas rapid progression to more challenging topics is possible for students who are trying to advance quickly.

By the end of the course, the student will have learned all the concepts typically taught in an Algebra 1 class in school, as well as some topics relevant for Geometry, which comes after Algebra 1. Depending on parent and student goals and needs, homework can be assigned and hours can be adjusted. Students can expect to show up each week to an enjoyable AJ environment where their motivation and hard work will be encouraged by good vibes and positivity.
