Students learn: Solving Linear Equations and Inequalities, Math Models, Graphs, Systems of Linear Equations, Polynomials, Factoring, Rational Expressions/Equations, Roots, Quadratic Equations, etc.
Typically for 8th or 9th grade students.
Comprehensive Algebra 1 course for 8th or 9th grade students
Algebra 1, also known as elementary algebra or beginning algebra, is the first course students take in algebra after Pre-Algebra. Historically, this class has been a high school level course that is often offered in eighth or ninth grades. Pre-requisite: Pre-Algebra
Contents of the Algebra 1 Course:
Arithmetic operations with whole numbers, integers, fractions, and decimals, to give the student a solid base that will support their study of algebra.
- Solving Linear Equations and Inequalities
verify a solution of an equation, solve equations using the Subtraction and Addition Properties of Equality, solve equations using the Multiplication and Division Properties of Equality, solve equations with variables and constants on both sides, use a general strategy to solve linear equations, solve equations with fractions or decimals, solve a formula for a specific variable, and solve linear inequalities.
- Math Models
Once students have learned the skills needed to solve equations, they apply these skills to solve word and number problems.
rectangular coordinate system, which is the basis for most consumer graphs. Students learn to plot points on a rectangular coordinate system, graph linear equations in two variables, graph with intercepts, understand slope of a line, use the slope-intercept form of an equation of a line, find the equation of a line, and create graphs of linear inequalities.
- Systems of Linear Equations
solving systems of equations by graphing, substitution, and elimination; solving applications with systems of equations, solving mixture applications with systems of equations, and graphing systems of linear inequalities.
how to add and subtract polynomials, use multiplication properties of exponents, multiply polynomials, use special products, divide monomials and polynomials, and understand integer exponents and scientific notation.
explore the process of factoring expressions and see how factoring is used to solve certain types of equations.
- Rational Expressions and Equations
work with rational expressions, solve rational equations, and use them to solve problems in a variety of applications.
- Roots and Radical
learn to apply the properties of square roots, and extend these concepts to higher order roots and rational exponents.
- Quadratic Equations
study the properties of quadratic equations, solve and graph them. They also learn how to apply them as models of various situations.
- Absolute Value Functions
