UnLock Pre-Algebra

UnLock Pre-Algebra Scope & Sequence

Take a look at our scope and the sequence in which the lessons are placed. Our lessons break math into bite-size chunks and build one concept upon another in a logical fashion that enhances learning and reduces math anxiety. The first 5 Units review concepts that your child should already be familiar with. This is to ensure that they don't have any "gaps" that could hold them back as they move ahead. It also serves to build their confidence before we move to the more complex concepts.
