Course Description

The Algebra I curriculum is comprised of the following major concepts or ‘Big Ideas’: (1) tools of algebra; (2) equations and inequalities; (3) rational and irrational numbers; (4) polynomials; (5) functional and relations; and (6) linear systems. While knowledge of content is being developed students are engaged in hands-on and cooperative activities that encourage mathematical reasoning, problem solving, communicating and making connections. Through these activities students utilize technology such as graphing calculators and computers. In addition they are encouraged to think more critically through activities that involve investigations, explorations, and discovery. Finally, evaluation appears in several formats: tests, performance tasks, and long- and short-term projects.
