8th Grade Math Tutoring Course
Pre-Algebra or Introduction to Algebra

Our tutoring and learning center offers three types of math programs designed for students attending 8th grade, or taking pre-algebra (introduction to algebra).

  1. Individual tutoring: one-on-one tutoring in-home or on-campus tutoring sessions.
  2. Small group tutoring. Our regular small group tutoring programs (2 - 5 students) are one hour long and held throughout the academic year from September to June. They provide an excellent combination of individualized instruction with one of our math tutors and the benefits of collaborative study with others. Students may bring the homework assigned by their respective teachers to their learning center classes and our tutors will help them with their specific assignments. In addition, our math tutors can cover the missed skills and provide additional instruction on challenging material in our own classes. Students enroll in our small group math tutoring programs by completing an application and returning it to the Columbia Academy tutoring and learning center. Enrollment is open throughout the year. A monthly commitment is required.
  3. Classroom math program. The entire classroom math program is divided into three consecutive sessions and covers the following topics:
  • The number system
  • Expressions and linear equations
  • Functions
  • Working with two- and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume

Upon completion of this course students will be able to:

  • Work with real numbers
  • Work with radicals and integer exponents
  • Understand the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations
  • Solve linear equations and systems of linear equations
  • Define, evaluate, graph and compare functions
  • Use functions to model relationships between quantities, interpret slope (m) of a line as a constant rate of change
  • Solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations
  • Understand congruence and similarity
  • Understand and apply the Pythagorean Theorem
  • Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving volume of cylinders, cones and spheres

Each session is 12 weeks long. The class meets once a week for one hour. Separate registration for each session ensures that the session you have chosen best meets your child's needs and it will not interfere with his/her other after-school activities during the year. Please refer to the Schedule page for specific dates when the sessions begin and end.
