Description of workshops:

- Algebra I Workshop – This course is designed to prepare students entering Algebra 1 as well as review students that have completed Algebra 1. Math concepts that will be used throughout the rest of high school classes will be taught, discussed and practiced throughout this three-hour workshop. The fundamentals of Algebra are vital for a student’s success in their mathematical career.

- ACT Math Workshop – This workshop will be a slower pace of the material that is normally presented in the ACT Math workshop given here at St. Patrick. Students will be given rules, tips and strategies for performing well on the Math section of the ACT. The ACT covers concepts from Pre-Algebra, Elementary and Intermediate Algebra, Coordinate and Plane Geometry and Trigonometry. Understand that some students might not have learned all of the material that will be on the ACT, therefore, concepts will be discussed that they might not have seen yet. This will give them a glimpse into the future curriculum they’ll be encountering while preparing them for the ACT test.

- Algebra II Refresh Workshop – This course is meant for students exiting Algebra II that feel a desire to gain confidence in some of the material that is used in higher level math classes, i.e. Algebra III, Advanced Math Plus, College Algebra, and Calculus. Students will be lead by instruction through rules, processes and thinking that are necessary to have mastered for these higher level classes. Practice work will be given as well.

Students should bring pencils, paper, graphing calculators and energy/enthusiasm.

There will be two short breaks during these three-hour sessions. The workshops will begin promptly, so please be sure to be on time.

The registration will be on a first-come, first-serve basis; therefore, if you’re interested, please register as soon as possible. There must be a minimum of ten students per workshop for it to be held and no more than twenty students per workshop.
