ALGEBRA I
Course Overview: This course takes students on a journey through algebraic concepts and applications. The course focuses on linear equations, inequalities, functions, graphing, systems of equations, polynomials, factoring, quadratic equations, probability, statistics, rational expressions, roots, and radicals. Students build critical thinking skills and problemsolving techniques required to grasp algebraic fundamentals. This course is a twoperiod block that will utilize direct instruction, student practice, and the online program, ALEKS. At the end of the course, students will take the Pennsylvania Algebra Keystone exam; passing at the proficient or advanced level is required for graduation in the state of Pennsylvania. This course is offered to students in grades 9 and/or 10.
Units of Study:

Numbers & Operations

Algebra

Geometry

Measurement

Statistics and Probability
