ID# DAY/TIME 4060030-H M-F • 10:25 am-12:10 pm HANDS-ON ALGEBRA Use the Hands-On Equations programs to learn how to solve equations; from basic one-step equations, up to multi-step linear equations you would see in 7th grade. Also, learn about how to work with integers and solve equations that have integers and fractions in them. As we learn how to solve equa- tions, we will also explore hands-on activities that involve algebra in the real world. Note: this class focuses on begin- ning and intermediate algebra, not reaching concepts such as quadratics or systems of equations.
