Pre Algebra

Pre algebra is a foundational course in mathematics that precedes Algebra 1. It provides students with the necessary background knowledge and skills to prepare them for more advanced algebraic concepts. Pre algebra covers a range of topics that help students develop arithmetic fluency and an understanding of basic algebraic principles. The main topics covered in pre algebra include:

Whole numbers:

Learn about the properties of whole numbers, including addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.


Understand the concepts of fractions, mixed numbers, and equivalent fractions, and perform arithmetic operations with them.


Learn about decimals and how to perform arithmetic operations with them, including addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.


Understand the concept of percents and how to convert between fractions, decimals, and percents.

Ratios and proportions:

Learn about ratios and proportions, and how to solve problems involving these concepts.


Understand positive and negative integers and their properties, and perform arithmetic operations with them.

Order of operations:

Learn the correct sequence of operations (PEMDAS/BODMAS) when simplifying expressions.

Variables and expressions:

Become familiar with the use of variables (letters) to represent unknown values and create simple algebraic expressions.

Basic equations:

Learn to solve basic one-step equations and inequalities involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.


Understand basic geometric concepts, such as points, lines, angles, and shapes, and learn about area and perimeter.

Coordinate plane:

Learn how to plot points on the coordinate plane and identify the four quadrants.


Understand units of measurement and learn how to convert between different units.

Probability and statistics:

Learn about basic probability and statistics concepts, such as the probability of an event and measures of central tendency (mean, median, and mode).

By developing a strong foundation in these topics, students become better prepared to tackle more complex algebraic concepts in Algebra 1 and beyond

After passing through this Pre Algebra tutorial program, students will be able to:

  • Understand, classify, and perform basic operations on the set of real numbers
  • Solve, Graph, and Check linear equations and inequalities of a single variable
  • Recognize and perform operations on polynomials
  • Use Ratios, Proportions, and Percents
  • Apply Real-World Situations of Percentages, Ratios and Proportions (Percent Mark-up, Discount, Tax, and Gratuity)
  • Apply concepts of Probability and Statistics in order to Interpret Information
  • Solve, graph, and check linear systems of equations and inequalities in two variables
  • Use, Write, and Apply properties and formulas to solve geometric problems
