• Algebra I Objectives

    The mathematics learning experience Algebra 1 will build on their understanding of linear equations with one variable and linear functions in Pre-Algebra. Students in this course deepen their knowledge of multiple representations of data and situations. They will develop mathematical reasoning by using symbolic and visual representations including graphs, tables, verbal or written statements and algebraic equations to solve and communicate solutions in real-world situations. Students will achieve procedural fluency in the four major strands:  Numbers & Operations; Algebraic Reasoning & Algebra, solving linear equations and inequalities, using them to solve real-world problems, and evaluating expressions; Functions, recognize functions and their families in real-world; and Data & Probability.  Algebra 1 is the high school course to prepare students for Geometry and Algebra 2 concepts.

    The following is the content that will be covered in PreAP Algebra I.
