This curriculum emphasizes a multi-representational approach to algebra, with concepts, results, and problems being expressed graphically, analytically, and verbally. It develops algebraic fluency by providing students with the skills needed to solve equations and perform important manipulations with numbers, variables, equations, and inequalities. In addition, the course develops proficiency with operations involving monomial and polynomial expressions. The main unifying themes of the course include understanding, writing, solving, and graphing linear equations, systems of linear equations and inequalities, quadratic equations, and rational equations. Upon completion of this course you will:

Perform operations with real numbers

Simplify and evaluate algebraic expressions

Use equations to solve word problems

Graph and solve problems involving inequalities and absolute value

Graph and solve linear equations

Solve systems of equations

Solve many types of real-world problems

Factor polynomial equations

Understand relations and functions

Solve quadratic equations

Work with radical expressions and rational equations
