Algebra Course Description

The content of Algebra I is organized around families of functions, with special emphasis on linear and quadratic functions. As you study each family of functions, you will learn to represent them in multiple ways.

The comprehensive content and varied real-life applications covered give students a strong mathematical foundation. The introduction to Geometric concepts within Algebra gives students the opportunity to study theory and application of formal and informal reasoning as well as the synthetic, coordinate, and transformational approaches. Real-world applications and suggestions for appropriate use of technology are integrated throughout the series.In addition to its algebra content, Algebra I includes lessons on probability and data analysis as well as numerous examples and exercises involving geometry. These math topics often appear on standardized tests, so maintaining your familiarity with them is important.
