8th grade Algebra I allows students the possibility of being a competitive student both with their U.S. and global peers; however, even many U.S. students who are fortunate to have Algebra I in the eighth grade still find themselves losing to their international peer group. We can hopefully stop that.
I have embedded the powerpoint presentation (edited and adopted from Achieve) from Algebra II Honors that we went through with the hope that you will return to it when you start to feel like class is too difficult. Remember, that your math education isn't only about a particular math class or how competitive it will make you globally, it also has a financial impact on your future earnings.
Flip through the powerpoint and let me know what you think.
