**Students are required to take and pass an algebra course in middle school and high school. Some students will easily master algebra; others will have more difficulty. My algebra program will prepare the student to succeed by challenging the confident student, motivating the reluctant learner and building confidence for all.**

Students will learn to use variables, expressions, and integers early so they are ready to solve equations. I will emphasize the relevance of algebraic concepts to a variety of math areas. The students will learn to solve equations with decimals and fractions. This foundation prepares the student to solve two-step equations. Geometry coverage will be integrated to support the student for state and standardized tests.
