...It is very important that students have a firm command of fractions arithmetic before starting pre-algebra. Pre-calculus is a subject that students often find they have trouble with. This is very common because pre-calculus is the first time math becomes more abstract (especially with limits), and there are no clear steps to follow to solve math problems like in previous classes.

...While teaching at an international school in India I had the privilege of teaching Pre-Algebra for a number of years. This class is a wonderful foundation to the building blocks of mathematics. Pre-Calculus is a wonderful bridge between Algebraic concepts and Calculus applications.

...What makes Calculus challenging is that all the teachers who had to lower the bars for students so at least 80% of students are getting a passing grades, because the system works this way. The next year teacher does a lot of reteaching and the system will send many students out with High School Diploma. In a calculus class there is no time to reteach algebra, geometry, algebra 2.
