Pre-Algebra reinforces arithmetic operations and teaches integers, fractions, decimals, percents, order of operations, geometry, graphing, measurement, and the solving of simple linear equations.

This course offers a unique approach to online instruction. It combines a dynamic software product with the personal attention of an instructor and 1 hour a week of live instruction. As students complete homework assignments they find out immediately if their answers are correct, have access to detailed sample solutions when needed, are provided with additional practice problems, and may easily contact the instructor with comments or questions. Short video clips are also provided for most topics to reinforce in-class instruction. Quiz and test problems are displayed online; students work out these problems on paper for submission to the instructor for partial credit. Assignments, due dates, grades, and cumulative grade averages are easily available for students and parents. This software product is currently used in middle schools, high schools, and nearly every college in America.

Mr. Adams also provides multiple ‘office hours’ each week for students who have questions or need extra help.  Students may choose from several available times each week to arrange private or small group extra help sessions.

"I am so appreciative of Mr. Adams' willingness to review the things my daughter was struggling to understand.  Mr. Adams teaches with such enthusiasm, willingness, grace, and humor.  If my daughter can laugh during math class, that is something special!" - Alex G., Massachusetts
