Algebra 1 Course Map

Algebra 1

Here’s where the adventure begins. 

Algebra 1 is a remix of all of the pre-algebra skills you learned in middle school. This course is designed to help you understand the math relationships we encounter on a regular basis, specifically those that can be modeled by linear, quadratic, and exponential functions. 

Go beyond the equation or graph; make connections between real-world situations and the math that expresses them. By truly understanding the skills presented in Algebra 1, students will be well-equipped to tackle the more advanced functions of Algebra 2.
