Saxon calls Pre-Algebra, "Algebra 1/2" and is designed for 8th graders.

Containing 123 lessons, this text is the culmination of pre-algebra mathematics, a full pre-algebra course, and an introduction to geometry and discrete mathematics. Some topics covered include prime and composite numbers; fractions & decimals; order of operations, coordinates, exponents, square roots, ratios, algebraic phrases, probability, the Pythagorean Theorem, and more.

Utilizing an incremental approach to math, your students will learn in small doses at their own pace, increasing retention of knowledge and satisfaction!

REQUIRED Students must take a placement test after registering for this class. The results must be turned in at the front desk of the Center. The math teacher will evaluate the results to make sure that your student is ready for Saxon Pre-Algebra. HERE

REMEMBER- We are a team! CHE is not “the” school. You are!

Parents will oversee all homework grading according to the guidelines, correcting, and administer any take home tests. *Grading of homework should occur daily. At no time should a student fail to turn in graded homework for 2 weeks in a row. In-class parent meetings will be scheduled as needed to instruct on grading procedures.

As per the CHE covenant, failure to comply with the requirements of the Saxon Pre-Algebra math class could result in the student failing and not being allowed to take the next level of Saxon Math at the Center. We want your student to be successful! Help us to help you have a fabulous year! We love helping you!
