Course Description

There is no honors option for this class. The size of the class will remain under 10 with extensive class participation required. Students will review the basic arithmetic operations on whole numbers, integers, and rational numbers. They will gain a better understanding of graphing two variable equations: lines, parabolas, absolute value, and exponential shapes. They also will study various algebraic concepts: solutions of first and second degree equations, solutions of systems of first degree equations, solutions of inequalities, and solutions of rational equations; operations with exponents, operations and factoring with polynomials, operations with rational expressions, and operations with square roots. Concepts will be presented visually and applied through word problems.

This class has summer homework.

To be successful in this class:

Students at the CP level will need daily at-home practice and possible assistance from their teaching parent. Parents will be expected to check homework and monitor students as they work.  Tests and assignments will be given to take at home with occasional quizzes given in class. Students should expect to spend at least one hour per day on these assignments.

Families with students in this class should also consider enrolling in Algebra 1 Virtual Lab.
