Algebra I is an intensive program designed to help new and returning Laurel students achieve success in their 2019-2020 Algebra I course. New students will find themselves better prepared for the rigor and skill level of mathematics at Laurel after attending this boot camp. Returning students may use this opportunity to sharpen previously acquired skills and better prepare for Algebra I. All participants will identify and review math topics, and practice skills essential to their success in the 2019-2020 school year. Topics covered include properties and operations with real numbers, simplifying and evaluating expressions, creating and interpreting functions, equalities, and inequalities and basic graphing.
At the conclusion of this session, students will be better prepared for a successful year in math class at Laurel. A typical class session includes group explorations, presentations of new material, individual and small-group practice and/or assessments. Math Boot Camp: Algebra I will meet for three hours each day for one week. The class is limited to ten students in order to provide individualized instruction. A new topic with corresponding examples and problems will be reviewed daily. Instruction will occur in both small group settings and individually, uncovering any misunderstandings and increasing mathematical fluency. Students will be expected to complete some independent practice outside of class.
