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. You will be able to measure the area and volume of shapes such as pyramids, prisms, cylinders and cones.

    Eric Rideg United States of America it taught me many things i knew already, but it also taught me things i did not know as well 2015-06-22 22:06:51

    Margaret Lacey United States of America It was a lot of fun learning this way. After finishing this course, I feel more prepared for my math classes next year. 2015-06-03 00:06:34
  • Margaret Garcia
    Margaret Garcia United States of America I truly enjoyed learning at my pace and in the convenience of my home. I will keep using ALISON for more academic lessons. 2015-05-29 00:05:11
  • Margaret Garcia
    Margaret Garcia United States of America I am thinking about taking a course like this at a local community college, but before I even register for it, this course was the way to go to brush up on those forgotten math skills I learned many years ago. I also had no trouble viewing the lessons online. I will continue to learn different lessons that ALISON has to offer. 2015-05-29 00:05:51
  • Margaret Garcia
    Margaret Garcia United States of America I definitely have to stop mixing up the perimeter and area questions. After this program, I will definitely review the formulas for measurements so that I have a clearer understanding of which to use in order to stop making dumb mistakes. Overall, I actually enjoyed this course... especially when I can sip my coffee during lessons and feel at ease trying to solve problems. 2015-05-28 23:05:35
  • Scott Webb
    Scott Webb United States of America Going back to college after many years away from Math. This course was very helpful in reminding me of things forgotten as well as teaching me a few things I'd never learned before. 2015-05-23 00:05:09
  • Nicole Chandler
    Nicole Chandler United States of America A decent course for anyone who needs a little bit of a 'refresh' on the basic pre-algebra material. It could definitely use more practice questions and examples per subject. 2015-05-04 19:05:44

    Heather Yoder United States of America I thought the course was a great refresher. Now onto the next course! 2015-04-30 19:04:47
  • Emil Larssen
    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
