Pre-Algebra is part of the Essential Pre-College Math (EPM) series of 16 self-paced, online modules that cover topics ranging from basic number properties to factoring and graphing polynomials. The modules are designed to help students review or master content usually covered in Pre-Algebra and Algebra I courses taught in high school, while at the same time presenting the material with authentic examples illustrating how mathematics is used in the various fields of study related to work for architectural engineering technicians or construction. This course underwent a thorough review by subject matter experts.
