Algebra 1 is a one year course that studies patterns and structures within the real number system. The course provides the mathematical skills and background required for high school and college mathematics courses. The course includes the study of fundamental concepts, equations and inequalities, functions and graphs, polynomial and rational functions, and systems, exponential functions, and systems of equations. A scientific calculator (such as the TI-30XS) is required.
Prerequisite: Prealgebra or 8th grade math
Supplies Needed- Students will need a composition notebook, loose-leaf paper and 3 ring binder, pencil, and scientific calculator for each class day. Composition notebooks can be purchased from the math department for $1 and scientific calculators can be rented from the department on a first come first serve basis ($5 for the year or $0.25 per class period). We highly encourage students to buy their own because we have a limited number and they will use them in Geometry as well. The math department will have a limited number for purchase.
See the Math Department home page for information regarding getting additional help outside of class.
