Course Syllabi

  • Algebra 1/Algebra 1A/Algebra 1B

    Students entering ninth grade who have not taken an Algebra I course previously should start their high school sequence with this mathematics course. Students who took Algebra I in middle school and earned below a C should also start high school with this course. Students taking Algebra 1 may still qualify for future Post-Secondary courses. In Algebra 1, students learn the basic definitions, terminology and rules necessary for the complete algebra sequence. An emphasis on reasoning and justification of algebraic processes is introduced. The four basic operations involving real numbers and variables are stressed along with solving and graphing linear equations and inequalities through a variety of problem solving techniques.


    PLEASE NOTE: Students who are enrolled in Algebra 1A and Algebra 1B will cover the topics listed below over the span of two years. Students who are enrolled in Algebra 1 will cover the topics in one year. Algebra 1A and Algebra 1B units are not necessarily numbered in the same way as listed below.
