##### (Grade 5-7)

**Pre-Algebra 1 **is aimed at giving students a solid foundation as they embark upon the study of Algebra. This course is ideal for students in **advanced elementary and middle school levels (grades 5-7)**. It begins with a review of Arithmetic and slowly expands the student’s vocabulary to new types of numbers (**negatives, fractions, decimals**) explaining how to reason in these number systems. With the improved skills in abstraction, the course helps them understand how to formulate and solve **linear equations in one variable**.

**Pre-Algebra 2 **builds offf from where Kodeclik’s **Pre-Algebra 1** left and introduces advanced concepts from **factorization** and basic **number theory**. It also introduces many applications including **making sense of data, probability, and understanding trends and patterns**. The key skill imparted by this course is an introduction to a range of **problem solving strategies** that will get regularly reinforced with each topic. This course prepares students for a detailed study of Algebra.

**Geometry 1 **begins from the most basic ingredients of geometry such as **points, lines, and angles and uses triangles and quadrilaterals** as the medium to introduce a range of geometric notions such as **symmetry and congruence**. Students are also introduced to studying these notions in the **two-dimensional cartesian coordinate system** as well as computing area and perimeter of geometric shapes. This course places a heavy emphasis on developing the student’s geometric intuition via **visualizations and drawings** before the student embarks on more rigorous proof-based geometry courses.

**Geometry 2 **course introduces more **complex shapes (e.g., circles) and three dimensional objects (e.g., cuboids, cylinders, cones, spheres)**. It presents a unifying emphasis on transformations to relate geometric shapes and, further, combines skills from Algebra and Geometry to introduce notions like the **Pythagorean theorem and basic trigonometry**. Students are also introduced to the importance of proofs in geometric reasoning.
