Is algebra looking more like a foreign language than a math class? Does the thought of solving and graphing linear or quadratic equations make your son’s head spin? The Algebra Foundations Camp will review basic algebraic skills and help to bridge any mathematical gaps your son may have following or preceding Algebra I or II. At the end of the camp, your son will find math to be more approachable and less intimidating.
Why Algebra Bootcamp?
During the week, basic algebraic functions will be reviewed and expanded upon. Linear, quadratic, piecewise, and absolute value functions will be explained in detail. Practice graphing and evaluating will be emphasized and tied together in order to help boost math fluency. Campers will develop intuition as to what a graph should look like based on the algebraic expression of a function and through tiered practice, will gain confidence in attacking more complicated functions.
Mr. Mike Stangel, High School Math Department
Mike teaches precalculus and physics at the high school level and Algebra I to all middle school students. With a background in engineering and an emphasis on critical thinking, he challenges students to think outside the box while using fundamental rules and principles in approaching problems. Teaching at both the high school and middle school levels has given Mike insight into approaching complex topics in an easy to understand manner. You can contact Mike Stangel at email@example.com.
