Algebra 1 Course Description:

    Algebra 1 introduces students to variables, algebraic expressions, equations, inequalities, functions, and all their multiple representations. In this class, students will develop the ability to explore and solve real-world application problems, demonstrate the appropriate use of graphing calculators, and communicate mathematical ideas clearly. This course lays the foundation for mathematical literacy that will help students be successful in every subsequent course in mathematics.

    Course Objectives: Students will be able to: 

    By the end of this course, students will be able to… ● Simplify or identify equivalent algebraic expressions. ● Represent math relationships using symbolic algebra. ● Differentiate between linear and nonlinear functions. ● Model and describe slope as a rate of change. ● Identify the slope from a graph, table, or equation. ● Evaluate variable expressions and functions. ● Identify an equation of a line from given information. ● Recognize the general shape and properties of functions from graphs, tables, or equations. ● Interpret the role of coefficients and constants on graphs of linear or quadratic functions.
