  8. Use notation like exponents, squares, and square roots.

Online Summer Math Program for Middle School Topics

Lesson 1: Numbers and Order of Operations

We’ll learn about numbers and how they always “add up” the same. That’s the good thing about numbers, they are consistent, as long as they are treated properly. By treating numbers properly, we mean that you have to apply the correct operations in the correct order to get the correct results. What are operations? We are talking about good old addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

Lesson 2: Numbers, Distributing, Exponents

We’ll learn about numbers and two ways to multiply. There’s the normal way to multiply, and also distribution, also called distributing. We will learn why it’s necessary to multiply two ways. We will also cover the topic of exponents, which is another way to say… multiplication. There’s lots of ways to multiply, and you will need them all for more advanced math courses. Not being able to “multiply” correctly is a major reason for students having problems with algebra concepts.

Lesson 3: Powers of Ten, Absolute Value, and Square Roots

We will learn the theory behind the numbers we use to count, which are based on the powers of ten. The lesson will focus on applying scientific format to numbers. We will learn about two mathematical functions called absolute value and square roots.

Lesson 4: Fractions the Easy Way

Don’t fret. We’ll show you the easy way to hand any situation with fractions. Fraction will come up in both real life and math class, and it’s not okay to fret over fraction. Trust us, this is going to be easy!

Course Sequence

Our online summer math program for middle school called Pre-Algebra Live is the first course in our math series.

Hi, I’m Dr. Scott, the course instructor. I’m also the author of the video textbook and worksheets which are included with the course.

As a former college professor, I know exactly how important those fundamental middle school math skills are. Studies have shown that this is the make or break point for future careers related to technology. Being prepared for future algebra classes is also strongly associated with graduating high school.

I developed this online summer math program so that middle schoolers  can develop the skills they need to feel confident with math. The easy way.
