This course meets each day of the week. In the five days Advantage Testing of South Florida teachers fully immerse students in one particular section of the ACT: English, math, reading, science and essay. Students will be exposed to the questions presented on the tests as well as provided with explanations as to how to approach, decipher and solve each of the questions in the most efficient manner. In addition to the in-class instruction, proctored practice tests will be available at the Advantage Testing of South Florida office during the duration of the course at no extra cost. More

This course reinforces learning strategies for reading and analyzing texts, both informational and fictional. With an emphasis on responding to passages, the course prepares students not only for a more seamless entrance into Grades 9 at Saint Andrew’s but also for better performance on verbal components of standardized tests. Students will study vocabulary to improve their reading comprehension and are exposed to the critical reading skills necessary to be successful in the Upper School. Reading fluency will be individually assessed and appropriate interventions implemented for each student as needed. More

This course is designed for students who have already completed a full year of Algebra 1 and need some additional support to re-learn, practice and better master the material they have already been taught. The following major topics are emphasized: solving different forms of linear equations and inequalities, quadratic equations, systems of linear equations; graphing lines, inequalities, and parabolas; simplifying expressions involving exponents, square roots, and variable terms. Other topics covered may include an introduction to geometry. A student must earn a grade of 75% or better to receive credit for the course and move into Geometry.

 PREREQUISITE: Departmental approval.

Through their reading of the text, working on assignments, and participating in class, students continue to be challenged and motivated to more fully understand four mathematical dimensions: developing skill in carrying out various problem-solving techniques; developing and using mathematical properties and relationships; applying mathematics in realistic situations; and representing or picturing mathematical concepts. The students become more aware of geometric shapes and the role of geometry in the world. The student should expect to increase his/her powers of reasoning and ability to analyze problems. Capsule: Geometry is studied from a transformational approach, using reflections, rotations, translations, and similarity transformations and their properties. Topics covered include coordinate geometry, transformations, congruencies, similarity, three-dimensional figures, polygons and measurements of area, surface area and volume. Students make use of current technology, including both calculators and computers.

PREREQUISITE: Algebra 1 with a final grade of C- or above. Note: Although students coming from eighth grade with a C- or C in Algebra I are permitted to continue on to Geometry, the department strongly recommends that such students revisit Algebra I as a ninth grade course or over the summer. This reinforcement will provide students with a much more solid background for higher level mathematics.

This course is a review of Algebra 1 topics and a preview of some Algebra 2 topics. It is designed to give students a jumpstart to their next academic year, as they enter Algebra 2.  Focus will be put on solving equations, exponent rules, simplifying expressions, order of operations, linear equations and graphing. This course is targeted to those students that are not fully confident with their Algebra 1 skills. The Geometry teacher from the previous year may recommend a student to take this course based on their performance in Geometry, but anyone moving into Algebra 2 could benefit from this course. More
