Course Description:

Pre-algebra and algebra are full of challenging, abstract concepts and complicated procedures. Algebra tiles are a tactile representation of these complex topics.

This class is designed for kinesthetic and visual learners (that’s most of us!) who would like to dive into the “why” and “how” of fundamental math ideas. The content we will cover is appropriate for students entering Pre-Algebra or Algebra I who would like to preview upcoming material and/or strengthen their understanding of previously covered topics.
