Algebra 1

This 32 week course focuses on the study of linear and non-linear functions and their many representations. For 90 min each week, students will learn how to think algebraically and be better problem solvers. Students will work through rational numbers, expressions, complex linear equations and inequalities, polynomials, data analysis and more. Students will also use a graphing calculator to aid in problem solving. This course will teach students basic calculator usage techniques that will help improve ACT/SAT scores.

Students will watch tutor-made video lessons at home on a weekly basis and complete online assignments through a game-based program. Class time will be spent reinforcing the video lessons through hands-on activities and extended lessons for advanced learners. Students will need to come to class having viewed the lessons and completed their daily online assignments in order to stay on track and be prepared. Monthly assignment calendar sheets will be given for students to follow and make sure they are ready to fully participate in class each week.
