**Review the Fundamental Skills Necessary to Succeed in Algebra 2!!**
Chariot Learning’s Algebra 2 Preview is grounded in the fact that a student’s success in an Algebra 2 course requires a fundamental understanding of the basics of algebra that are typically taught in an Algebra 1 course. Algebra 2 takes these fundamentals into the real world by providing word problems related to real life situations. Algebra 2 also introduces more advanced algebra techniques that build on the basics taught in Algebra 1. Finally, many students take an Algebra 2/Trig hybrid course which sacrifices valuable concept and problem review for an overview of important trigonometry concepts.
Facing the need to cram so much material into their Algebra 2/Trig courses, math teachers have limited in-class or after-school resources available to help struggling students. Students must therefore hit the ground running right away or risk falling behind quickly. This is compounded by the fact that most high schools interrupt the seemingly logical Algebra 1/Algebra 2 sequence with a year of geometry. Simply put, many students tend to forget nearly every concept that they learned in Algebra 1 in a normal year. The gap in sustained direct math instruction when schools closed on account of COVID-19 makes a seamless transition to Algebra 2 this fall exponentially more difficult.
Chariot Learning’s online Algebra 2 Preview has been created to minimize the impact of this loss of conceptual knowledge. By focusing on improving students’ conceptual understanding of key algebra fundamentals, this course is able to establish a strong foundation for Algebra 2 success in just 15 hours.
Instructional sessions run Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10:00-11:40am:
July 20, 22, 24, 27, 29, 31
