Course Description

This free online course in Pre-Algebra mathematics for high school students will guide you through several different areas of mathematics such as integers, one-step equations, inequalities and equations, graphs and functions, percent, probabilities. There is also an introduction into geometry and right triangles. The course is divided into twelve modules and each module is divided into several lessons. Under each lesson you will find theory, examples and video lessons. This course is ideal for learners who want to gain a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of topics in pre-algebra which they can build on in later courses.

Certification

To qualify for your official ALISON Diploma, Certificate or PDF you must study and complete all modules and score 80% or more in each of the course assessments. A link to your Diploma certificate will then appear under the My Certificates heading of your My Account page.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course you will know how to apply operations in the right order, evaluate expressions and identify properties. You will understand the meaning and calculation of a coordinate system, ordered pairs, inequalities, absolute values and how to solve equations in different ways. You will be able to add, subtract, multiply and divide integers. You will know polynomials, binomials and factorisation. You will gain a good knowledge of arithmetic such as integers, rational numbers, geometric sequences of numbers, and scientific notation. You will be able to calculate the circumference of a circle. You will know different ways that you can represent graphs and functions. You will gain knowledge of ratios and percentages. You will have an understanding of probability and statistics such as mean, median, mode and much more. You will gain a good knowledge of geometry including circle graphs, angles, parallel lines, triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons and transformations.

    Emil Larssen Denmark This was a nice refresher for one who has allready learned these things before, although in another language so there are a few differences in some of the terms. So this also helped chain together some terms. 2015-04-26 12:04:38
