This course is the first of two that comprise Honors Algebra 1. In this course, the student will be exposed to higher-level mathematics. The student will begin by reviewing basic real number operations and properties before learning how to translate between verbal descriptions of real-life situations and data presented in tables, graphs, and equations. Next the student will solve multi-step equations and inequalities. The student will write and graph linear equations in various forms. Other topics in the course include sequences and series, absolute value, rate of change, and set notation. By the end of the course, the student will solve linear systems of equations and inequalities. Throughout the course, the student will solve real-world problems and model real-world scenarios. Throughout the course, the student will be introduced to multiple problem-solving strategies and will be exposed to various technologies that can be utilized when solving algebra problems.
Students should successfully complete Math 7 and/or Pre-Algebra prior to enrolling in this course.
