Algebra I (3130) VA
Algebra I is a full year, high school credit course that is intended for the student who has successfully mastered the core algebraic concepts covered in the prerequisite course, Grade Eight Math. Within the Algebra I course, the student will explore basic algebraic fundamentals such as evaluating, creating, solving, and graphing linear and quadratic functions.
- Foundations of Algebra: Student will identify different real number properties, and how to use them to simplify and evaluate algebraic expressions.
- Linear Equations: Student will translate word problems into algebraic equations and solve them using real number properties.
- Functions: Student will understand the characteristics of linear functions, representing them both algebraically and graphically.
- Inequalities and Linear Systems: Student will write, graph, and solve inequalities using real number properties. In addition, the student will determine the solution of a pair of linear equations or inequalities, graphically or algebraically.
- Polynomials: Student will add, subtract, multiply, and divide monomials and polynomials, as well as factor polynomials using several different methods.
- Exponents and Roots: Student will simplify exponential expressions using the rules of exponents. In addition, the student will apply their understanding of exponents to explore exponential functions.
- Quadratics: Student will identify, write, and graph quadratic functions and solve quadratic equations and inequalities using several different methods.
- Statistics: Student will determine the central tendencies of a given data set, as well as use a linear or quadratic function to model and describe the set.
