M8The understanding of higher level math begins with this challenging pre-algebra course. Designed as a core subject for 8th graders, this course can also be taken as an elective course for middle and high school students in other grades. This interactive course is a thorough examination of significant math concepts including number relationships, variables, scientific notation, functions, integers, measurement, formula use, and data representation.

The course units includes text-based lessons, on and off-computer exercises, special projects, learning games, quizzes, and tests that appeal to today's digital generation and help teachers to evaluate progress and mastery of the materials.
