  • Algebra 1

    Algebra I is designed to give all students a solid algebraic foundation before moving on to higher-level mathematics courses. Topics covered include functions, equations, inequalities, linear equations, systems of open sentences, graphing, polynomials, factoring, rational expressions, radical expressions, and quadratic equations.  Problem solving opportunities throughout the year give students a deeper understanding of algebra concepts and sharpen their critical thinking skills. Cross-curricular units and projects further enrich the Algebra 1 course. Placement into Algebra 1 is determined by diagnostic testing, previous coursework, and teacher recommendation.
  • Algebra 1A

    Algebra 1A is designed to meet the needs of a student who is ready for Algebra, but at a pace that provides greater time for the development and reinforcement of new topics.  Students in Algebra 1A will complete the Algebra I curriculum in a two year program by enrolling in Algebra 1B as a ninth grader. Topics covered include rational numbers, percents, equations, inequalities, polynomials, and factoring.  Problem solving techniques and strategies designed to improve critical thinking and organizational skills are developed and reinforced throughout the year. Algebra 1A is further enriched by cross-curricular units and projects.  Placement into Algebra 1A is determined by diagnostic testing, previous coursework, and teacher recommendation.
