In prealgebra we cover numerous topics to include operations and solving equations with integers and fractions/mixed numbers.  We also cover proportions, ratios and percentages, then move on to working with decimals as they apply to markup and discount.  Much of the last quarter covers linear equations, functions, and beginning geometry to include, area, surface area, and volume. The goal is to have students be able to see how these math topics can be applied outside the classroom.
