Type of Credit: Math
This course is a rigorous in-depth study of the topics of Algebra 1 designed to develop the algebraic concepts and processes that can be used to solve a variety of real-world mathematics problems. The content will include: structure and properties of the real number system; varied means for analyzing and expressing patterns, relations and functions; variables, algebraic expressions and polynomials; geometric concepts; set operations; dimensional analysis; data analysis concepts and techniques; and varied solution strategies, algebraic and graphic, for inequalities, linear and quadratic equations, and for systems of equations. Calculators and computers will serve as instructional tools in concept development. Students will be required to pass the state Algebra 1 End of Course Assessment to be awarded credit for the course.
