# What is included in pre algebra?

Space and AstronomyPre-algebra is a course designed to prepare students for a standard high school algebraic course. Students are introduced to **integers, fractions, square roots, step equations, linear equations and decimals** and are taught how to solve basic equations using variables.

## Does pre algebra include geometry?

**Pre-algebra may include subjects from geometry**, especially to further the understanding of algebra in applications to area and volume. Pre-Algebra may also include subjects from statistics to identify probability and interpret data.

## What do I need to know for pre algebra?

**What math concepts should the student know, or at least be familiar with, before starting pre-algebra?**

- fractions and decimals.
- variables.
- inequalities.
- basic awareness of exponents.
- knowledge of basic geometry such as finding the perimeter and area of different shapes.
- recognition of patterns.
- ability to do word problems.

## Is pre algebra and algebra 1 the same?

**The biggest differences between prealgebra and algebra are the pace and length**. Prealgebra introduces algebra concepts and takes each one slower and therefore does not cover as much material as a standard Algebra I course.

## What is the difference between algebra and pre algebra?

**Algebra has much more advanced concepts than pre-algebra**. You learn about exponents, logarithms, fundamental theorems, and complex numbers, conic sections, etc. Pre-algebra helps students to have the basic command in algebra topics. Algebra increases complexity and understanding of the topics learned in pre-algebra.

## What math is after Pre-Algebra?

Typically, **Algebra 1** comes after Pre-Algebra. Then Geometry and Algebra 2. The prefix “pre” means “before”.

## Is 8th grade math Pre-Algebra?

Eighth-grade math is **typically a course in pre-algebra** to help prepare students for high school algebra. Our 8th-grade math curriculum can be used either as a main homeschool program or as a supplement to another homeschool curriculum or a traditional school.

## What does pre-algebra look like?

Pre Algebra is the first math course in high school and will guide you through among other things **integers, one-step equations, inequalities and equations, graphs and functions, percent, probabilities**. We also present an introduction to geometry and right triangles.

## What grade level is pre-algebra?

A small percentage of students are selected to follow this course sequence. More common for advancement is students working one grade level above. They begin the sequence with Pre-Algebra in **7th grade** and Algebra I in 8th.
