This is one-year course designed to teach the fundamentals of elementary algebra. This course lays the foundation of knowledge and skills needed in subsequent college preparatory mathematics courses. The major topics of study are; real numbers and the properties of real numbers; linear equations and the inequalities including systems; graphing; representing real world relationships; polynomials; factoring; square roots; quadratic equations; elements of probability and statistics; and problem solving. Throughout the year, students will be expected to develop the ability to reason and communicate mathematically, apply learned concepts to new problem-solving situations and exhibit increased confidence in their ability to solve mathematical problems.
