When students receive Pre-Algebra tutoring from me, I review with them the following topics so that they you can pursue higher-level mathematics with confidence and success. Some pre-algebra topics include: • Types of numbers o Integers o Fractions o Decimals o Negative numbers • Operational properties o Commutative properties o Associative properties o Distributive properties • Constants and variables • Basic equations • Use of parentheses • Order of evaluation of formulas • Exponentiation o Ratios o Logarithms o Scientific Notation o Significant Figures o Simplifying Radicals
