Description

Power Pre-Algebra is a carefully tailored preparatory course for anyone seeking to gain a firm understanding of Pre-Algebra. This course was designed and created because of the lack of appropriate materials in existence that explain exact problems from a specific textbook. While there are a host of videos and explanations online, I wanted to make something that followed precise problems from a particular and popular textbook.

Have you ever understood everything a teacher says during class, but as soon as you try the problems at home, the methodologies seem to escape you? Yes, that's what I figured.

This phenomenon is extremely common. I have seen it time and again as both a private tutor and a teacher. This phenomenon was the impetus for this course. Power Pre-Algebra walks through a smattering of practice problems from each part of every lesson so you always have a solid walkthrough to lean on no matter what problems have been assigned. Moreover, this course goes through the even problems only (which are notorious for being the problems in textbooks with no answers).

If you need to master the subject to earn a solid grade in your math class or simply have an interest in Pre-Algebra, I hope you use this course to gain the results you want and deserve!

Who this course is for:
• This course is for anyone who is interested in gaining a concrete understanding of Pre-Algebra. This course has been carefully designed to allow students to navigate the entire Glencoe McGraw Hill textbook without outside instruction.
• This course is not for students who have not yet completed elementary level mathematics.
