*This course appears to be a review for someone who may have already studied it before and wants to brush up on the foundamentals. It does not seem to be a complete Pre-Algebra course.
I hope you will find these courses worth it. Some of them are phenomenal. And even though we ended up choosing a paid course, I will no hesitate to come here for reinforcements. My sincere thanks to all the individuals and institutions who have made these available to all of us to enjoy for free. We highly appreciate it!
