Algebra 1

Course Overview:

The Algebra 1 online course begins by introducing students to the world of Algebra through expressions and equations. Students will evaluate algebraic expressions, solve linear equations and graph them. This course also steers students through various real-world scenarios with the emphasis on using basic statistics to interpret the information given and found.

Students learn through online lesson materials, videos and interactive activities. The end of each unit tests students’ understanding with a self-check quiz with feedback. Also included is a unit exam and project for students to apply what they have learned.

The second semester builds on the concepts learned in the first semester by providing a strong foundation in solving problems. Students will work with problems and applications that involve exponents, quadratic equations, polynomials and factoring methods, rational and radical equations, data analysis and probability.

Students will interact with course materials through online lessons, videos, interactive questions and real-world applications. Each unit ends with a self-check quiz to confirm knowledge of the concepts learned. There is also a unit exam and project. Teacher feedback is given throughout the course.

Semester 1:

In Semester A, students will delve into key concepts of algebra, including algebraic expressions, operations with real numbers, properties of real numbers, basic statistics measures, solving equations (both simple and multi-step), linear functions, graphs, and solving inequality equations. These topics lay the foundation for algebraic problem-solving and understanding mathematical relationships.

Semester 2: 

In Semester B, students will further expand their mathematical knowledge with concepts such as exponents and scientific notation, arithmetic and geometric sequences, operations with polynomials, systems of equations, factoring polynomials, quadratic functions, graphs, higher-order polynomials, data analysis, probability, exponential and radical equations, and rational functions and equations. These concepts deepen students’ understanding of algebra and equip them with tools to solve more complex problems, analyze data, and explore mathematical patterns and functions. Overall, the two semesters provide a comprehensive coverage of algebraic concepts, enabling students to develop a solid understanding of the subject and apply mathematical reasoning and problem-solving skills.
