# Algebra 1

Algebra 1 introduces students to the foundational concepts of mathematics: variables, algebraic expressions, equations, inequalities, functions, exponent rules and manipulation, polynomials, solving and graphing linear equations, solving and graphing two variable inequalities, solving systems of equations, radicals, word problems, solving and graphing quadratic equations, and factoring. Students will apply math concepts to solve real-world problems. Graphing calculators will be an integral part of all instruction.

##### Class Introduction

In this course, we will be exploring the fundamental concepts of mathematics, including variables, algebraic expressions, equations, inequalities, functions, exponent rules and manipulation, polynomials, linear equations, two-variable inequalities, systems of equations, radicals, word problems, quadratic equations, and factoring. Throughout the course, we will use graphing calculators to help us understand and apply these concepts in real-world scenarios.

##### Outcome

After completing the course, students are expected to reach the following goals:

• Understand variables, algebraic expressions, equations, inequalities, functions, exponent rules and manipulation, polynomials, linear equations, two-variable inequalities, systems of equations, radicals, word problems, quadratic equations, and factoring.
• Solve and graph equations and inequalities, including linear and quadratic equations.
• Use a graphing calculator to support their understanding and problem-solving.
##### Feedback

Students and their parents will receive brief feedback after each class regarding the student’s general participation in class. Students will also receive feedback on graded assignments via email.
