Pre-Algebra: An Applied Approach.
Richardson, Brenda; Williams, Gloria
Promoting ACademic Excellence in Mathematics and Science for Workers of the 21st Century (PACE) was a consortium project made up of Indiana University Northwest, the Gary Community Schools, and the Merrillville Community Schools. The focus of this project was to prepare teachers and curricula for Tech Prep mathematics and science courses for the two school districts. The courses and course units prepared by the project are intended to promote the Core 40 Competencies of the Indiana Department of Education for High School courses. This document contains units for pre-algebra designed for students who have not mastered the necessary competencies which would enable them to enter into a first year algebra course. It is not a core 40 course, but does maintain the applied perspective. Units include: (1) Rational Number Foundations; (2) Exponents, Area, and Volume; (3) Data and Probability; and (4) Algebraic Foundations. (JRH)
