Bridge to AoPS Algebra II
Summer course. Bridge to AoPS Algebra II is ideal for students who are new to the AoPS curriculum or who have completed AoPS Algebra I and wish to review and strengthen their algebraic skills. The class provides a thorough review of key skills in order to have a smooth transition to Algebra II. Topics include: working with exponents (regular, fractional, and negative), distribution and factoring, single and multivariable linear equations, graphing lines, using slope formula, quadratics, and completing the square. Students are expected to come to class prepared to discuss problems and to work individually and in groups to solve assigned problems. Students should expect to spend several hours each week working on assignments for this class.
Prerequisites: Completion of an Algebra I course with a desire to enroll in the AoPS Algebra II course. Students should be comfortable using a keyboard to input work. Students may not use a calculator in this class (or in the AoPS Algebra II class). Students must be able to save and upload documents to Blackboard in PDF format.
