Algebra 1 focuses on the structure of the real number system using letters and numbers to show relations between quantities. We will review the rules and basics of arithmetic, and incorporate the use of a calculator in computing. Linear, quadratic, and systems of equations, and problem solving will be investigated. Other topics that will be covered include negative numbers, polynomials, factoring, inequalities, statistics, irrational numbers and radicals, and graphing.
The main reason for learning math skills is to help us use math to solve everyday problems. Therefore, as well as basic math problems, this class will teach problem solving and application of learned skills to real-life situations. Homework will include multiple worksheets covering the weekly lessons and should take 2-3 hours per week. There will be chapter tests that will be open book take home tests. A few things that need to be memorized will be tested in a periodic classroom quiz.
Parents and students will need to use Google Classroom to be up to date with assignments. Parents will also have to grade their student's homework. They will be given an answer key and students will be expected to turn in corrected homework each week.

A calculator (basic is fine as long as it has a square root symbol but if you're buying a new one, go ahead and buy a scientific calculator as this will be required for many future high school courses)
