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:

  • Foundations
    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.
  • Graphs
    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.
  • Polynomials
    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.
  • Factoring
    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
  • Statistics
  • Probability

  1. Katie

    My son changed his grade from C to A with the help of this course. WhizSmart tutors are fabulous. Unlike other tutoring services, they really focus on concepts and ensure the child has developed deep understanding of the subject.

  2. Julia Stearns

    We have had a really good experience with WhizSmart. They are super friendly, the teachers are really great and how they teach is very different than what you see from what else is out there. My daughter got inspired by her teacher from Columbia and she wants to go to Columbia now. Her Math has improved significantly and she got much better grades than before.
