Course Overview

    Algebra 1 is a full year course. This course provides a formal development and basic foundation of the algebraic skills and concepts necessary for students to succeed in higher level math courses, such as Geometry, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, and Calculus. In addition, this class is essential in science courses such as Biology, Chemistry and Physics, where students are required to interpret data in quantitative form. Algebra 1 will introduce the concept of the Real Number set and its subsets, which are the natural numbers, integers, rational numbers, and Irrational numbers. Moreover, Algebra l emphasizes the fundamental concepts of functions and relations, solving word problems, solving equations and inequalities.
