Course Description\nHow do you write, simplify, and solve equations? How can you display data so it can be easily interpreted and understood? In Algebra, students learn how to translate phrases into expressions, and sentences into equations and inequalities, expressing them in their simplest forms. Students find solutions to equations by graphing them on number lines or on the coordinate plane. Students learn the value of finding the best tool for the job as they acquire different strategies to use in various situations, such as finding the slope of a line, solving a system of equations or inequalities, or factoring polynomials. Building on this knowledge, students apply transformations to polynomial functions, explore inverses and one-to-one functions, and examine exponential and logarithmic functions. Work in statistics includes organizing and analyzing data; making stem-and-leaf plots; finding mean, mode, and median; making box-and-whisker plots; and recognizing misleading graphs. At the completion of this course, students are prepared for additional math courses in middle and high school.\n\nCourse Breakdown\n\n Real number operations\n Algebraic expressions and equations\n Order of operations\n Real number properties\n Translating and solving linear equations\n Percentage, distance, rate, time, and mixture formulas\n Writing, graphing, and solving linear inequalities\n Graphing relationships\n Inverses of functions\n Properties of graphs\n Rates of change\n Slope-intercept form\n Point-slope form\n Solutions of systems of equations and inequalities\n\nCourse Goals\n Apply the order of operations to evaluate expressions.\n Solve one-step and multistep equations using different operations.\n Solve one-step and multistep linear inequalities using different operations.
