Honors Algebra I
Most students enrolled for this course are 9 – 11 years old.
Students must have a minimum NWEA MAP Math and Reading of 230. New students must also pass the Prealgebra Challenge exam which covers the topics listed on the course description for that page.
This is a hybrid class. Students attend a two-hour class once a week for 36 weeks and are expected to complete and submit homework twice a week between classes. Students will receive comments on work submitted via the internet. These comments will frequently require students to revise their work. Students should expect to spend at least 20 minutes a day, 5-6 days a week on homework.
In addition to core algebra topics, students gain skills in time management, personal accountability, organization, and independent study skills. Students will be required to follow rigid standards to write and evaluate mathematical expressions and statements that are supported by properties and definitions. Students will further develop study skills introduced in Accelerated 6th Grade Math and Prealgebra.
