Ready for High School Math

Overview

Ready for High School Math

This course emphasizes understanding of mathematics concepts rather than just memorizing procedures. Students learn why to use a certain formula or method to solve a problem. By engaging students in real-world applications, Ready for High School Math develops critical thinking skills that students will use throughout their high school studies.

The course consists of eight units, culminating in a capstone project that emphasizes synthesis of concepts.
