Tutoring is available most days from 2:35-3:00 pm to help students prepare for the Keystone Exam.  Please contact a math teacher or guidance counselor to schedule tutoring sessions.

In addition, students can watch reviews for specific concepts to help prepare by using the links below to Khan Academy.  Your math teacher may be able to provide specific areas upon which you need extra review.

The Khan Academy is a free website that includes instruction and guided practice.  To save  progress you need to create an account and log on. However, you can access the video tutorials without an account as well.

The practice sections relevant to the Keystone Algebra 1 test in the Khan Academy LEARN center are organized below.  Each link contains interactive practice, hints, worked out solutions and links to video instruction if needed.  Use the links on this page to select the practice.  When moving to a new topic, return to this page to pick the next practice area.
