It's a practice in solving and graphing linear equations. We study the use of exponents and how they are affected by different operations. There are story problems that deal with uniform motion, percents, ages, money, and triangles. We spend some time learning how to use the slope and y-intercept methods to graph equations. We also find perimeter, areas, and volumes of geometric figures. All students (boys & girls) are encouraged to take this class if it will meet their needs, and there are story problems that are multi-cultural and non-sexist.
