The Pre-Algebra course at the Ketterer Charter School is the prerequisite for Algebra 1. The course is based on the 8th grade PA math standards for Pre-Algebra. Topics covered in this course include positive and negative integers, basic one-step equations and inequalities, combining like terms, introduction of two-step equations, probability, basic geometry including the introduction of the Pythagorean Theorem, and graphing in the coordinate plane. Course plans include the use of the Study Island website to remediate topics presented in the Pre Algebra course, a review of skills needed for success in our Pre-Algebra course, and PSSA preparation.
