Syllabus

  1. 1. Welcome to Algebra 1
  2. 2. Algebra 1 is a high school mathematics course designed for students who have successfully acquired and mastered, basic arithmetic skills.
  3. 3. Algebra 1 is a high school mathematics course designed for students who have successfully acquired and mastered, basic arithmetic skills. In this course, we will consider the properties of real numbers, linear and quadratic equations (and their graphs), functions, systems of equations, polynomials, rational expressions, and basic data analysis.
  4. 4. Algebra 1 is a high school mathematics course designed for students who have successfully acquired and mastered, basic arithmetic skills. In this course, we will consider the properties of real numbers, linear and quadratic equations (and their graphs), functions, systems of equations, polynomials, rational expressions, and basic data analysis. Though it is often a student’s first experience with formal, abstract thought, a solid understanding of Algebra is vital to his or her success in any other mathematical endeavor.
