Designed specifically for campers who will be entering Algebra 1 in the fall, Algebra Appetizers helps campers learn the fundamental concepts of algebra and become familiar with its language through activities, games, and explorations guided by the teacher. Campers learn the principles for solving equations. For linear and more advanced equations, campers learn to match symbolic representations with their graphic equivalents. Individually, campers prepare for algebra by refreshing, sharpening, and extending their base of math skills using our proprietary MathTree® skill system. Basic skills include ratio, proportion, decimals, fractions, percents, integers, and factoring. Some campers advance to exponents, order of operations, integers, radicals, absolute value, and complex fractions.

Kudos for MathTree
“My child enjoyed this camp more than any other camp and is looking forward for one next year. She did not forget her multiplication tricks and uses them in her daily math work. It made my job easier in introducing multiplication to my daughter.”
