Intermediate Math Skills is designed for eighth grade and is a continuation of Basic Math Skills. The style and format are identical. Content ranges from pre-algebra to introduction to basic algebra concepts. A scientific calculator is required. This course is also an excellent refresher course for persons who completed eighth grade math, but need to brush up on pre-algebra concepts before enrolling in algebra I or attempting competency exams for certification. PAC recommends that you download the Diagnostic Test (link provided below) to evaluate where your student needs remedial instruction. The diagnostic test is not necessary if your student has successfully completed Basic Math Skills. NOTE: This course requires the use of the TI-83 scientific calculator, manufactured by Texas Instruments. While most functions are applicable to other scientific calculators, the student should study the operation manual of other makes and models to compare any differences. Chapter 6 of Basic Math Skills is recommended for the student assigned to complete Intermediate Math Skills.
