Throughout Algebra 1 [Honors], students will study a range of topics that extend beyond the traditional framework of Algebra 1. This course begins with fundamental topics in algebra, including number classification, parts of expressions, linear equations, and proportionality. Students will extend these topics as they learn about the many characteristics and applications of linear functions. The course continues with an exploration of systems of equations and inequalities, the structure of polynomials, and an in-depth examination of quadratic functions. Students wrap up the course by analyzing data and probability concepts, inverses, radical functions, and rational expressions.
