This is a summer course that introduces students to concepts seen in an Algebra 1 course. Specifically, students will explore real numbers, algebraic expressions, functions, equations and inequalities, slope and linear equations, systems of linear equations, polynomials and factoring, and quadratic equations. There will be an emphasis on solving real world applications using linear, quadratic and exponential models.
Please note that this course is an abbreviated course which lasts 8 weeks. Therefore, the course does not cover a full year’s curriculum with the same depth that is covered in a year-long course. Students are expected to work approximately 8-10 hours per week. In addition, if the student is taking this course for credit recovery or initial credit, it is strongly advised that you check with the student's school to confirm that the topics covered (see course syllabus) match those required by the school. You may also want to confirm with the school the process for receiving credits, which may involve an assessment administered separately by the school.
Students will be able to:
Identify relationships between quantities within the real number system
Interpret the structure of numerical and algebraic expressions
Perform operations on expressions and write equivalent forms to solve problems
Create equations to describe relationships
Reason with equations and inequalities
Interpret and build functions using proper function notation
Construct, compare and interpret linear, quadratic and exponential models
