Question from mohamed, a parent:

i want to know the meaning of pre algebra


Pre algebra is the name of a course given in some North America jurisdictions that follows basic arithmetic courses and is seen as a prerequisite for a first course in algebra. A list of some of the topics commonly covered can be found in the pre-algebra page on Wikipedia. I would add that pre algebra courses might also include topics in probability and statistics.
