## Course Description

**Pre-Algebra Intensive Review** is a summer semester review of topics necessary for success in Algebra 1. **This course does NOT teach all of these topics it is a review and should NOT be the student's initial exposure to the majority of this material.** The course is paced much too rapidly to cover all of the topics. The course assumes that the student has seen the majority of the material before and is needing a review and practice in order to gain mastery prior to advancing to Algebra. When taught, the topics are treated with much more rigor than is seen in elementary school mathematics classes. If a student requires primary exposure to these topics, it should be accomplished in MAT099: Pre-Algebra over a full school year.
