Pre-Algebra is the Bridge that Links Arithmetic with Mathematics!
Pre-Algebra is the single most important pre-requisite for success in higher math courses (Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, PreCalculus, and Calculus). The distance covered on the math course continuum is dependent upon the student’s preparation for their first theoretical math class, first year Algebra.
Pre-Algebra is a basic necessity to being properly prepared for high school algebra. The more foundation a math student has, the better chance he/she will progress successfully through their high school years of math education. Of all the math concepts necessary for further and more advanced study of math, the foundation of understanding pre-algebra is crucial. Learning Basic Algebra with this software works. This pre algebra program offers basic algebra help with instruction and practice basic algebra problems on the topics necessary for success in high school Algebra. Immediate feedback with automatic scoring for students and teachers is available to track progress.
