Algebra I (Traditional Approach)

Full-year course. Algebra I is designed to help students gain a strong foundation in the fundamentals of algebraic equations and problem solving. Based on Mary Dolciani’s Algebra: Structure and Method text, topics will include but are not limited to: evaluation of multi-variable expressions, distribution and factoring, single and multivariable linear equations, ratios and percents, direct, inverse, and joint proportion, graphing lines using slope formula, intercepts, inequalities, and quadratic equations. Students will use a graphing calculator and other technology to solve problems. They will also learn to use algebraic reasoning to analyze data and solve real-world problems. Through a combination of lecture, class discussion, MathXL homework, and activities, students will develop their problem-solving skills and gain an understanding of the principles of algebra.
