This course is intended to tie the courses of Algebra 1 and Geometry together to provide a backbone for future math courses. Students will practice representing mathematical ideas verbally, numerically, algebraically and graphically. Intense problem solving, critical thinking, and vocabulary-building skills will also be reinforced. Topics studied include linear equations, relations and functions, polynomials, rational expressions and equations, radicals, quadratic equations, and systems of equations.**Perquisite:** Successful completion of Geometry or math equivalent.**CREDIT:** 1.0 credit

**Algebra I** - Offered every year

This course incorporates the study of basic algebraic language. It will provide the foundation for more advanced mathematics and science courses and will develop the skills needed to solve mathematical problems. It stresses both the structure and the development of theoretical and real world problem solving. Topics covered include order of operations, distributive property, solving equations using properties of equality, graphing inequalities, solving inequalities, ratios and rates, proportions, inductive reasoning, linear equations, slope of a line, solving a system of equations, exponents, polynomials and solving quadratic equations.**Prerequisite:** Successful completion of Pre-Algebra or math equivalent.**CREDIT:** 1.0 credit (9-12)
