Algebra I

Grade: 8-12
Credits: 1 (High School Students Only)

Algebraic thinking is the stepping stone to higher level mathematics. The course begins with a thorough review of the concepts essential to success in Algebra—the order of operations, operations with signed numbers, and the distributive property—and moves on to solving and graphing (both on paper and using calculators), linear and quadratic equations and inequalities. In addition, students study factoring, simplifying and manipulating rational expressions, and linear functions. These concepts are learned by students working together to discover these relationships.



Prerequisite: Successful completion (B or above) of Math-Thematics Book III or equivalent pre-algebra class, or permission of instructor.
